O-RAN specifications and open software are enabling a broad industry ecosystem. Companies of different sizes and specializations can use them to create their innovative and competitive open solutions.
Defining the complex O-RAN Architecture is a step-by-step process resulting in hundreds of technical documents.
O-RAN speciﬁcations serve as a basis for open software reference design.
The O-RAN Software Community hosts developers brought in by many O-RAN players, cooperating on tens of software projects.
