Since March 2023, O-RAN WGs and FGs published 57 technical documents, bringing the total to 101 specification titles in 438 versions.
Four documents represent new titles:
The workshop is jointly organized by O-RAN next Generation Research Group (nGRG) and O-RAN Industry Engagement Focus Group (IEFG).
O-RAN companies plan to showcase 3 on-site and 15 virtual demonstrations, including innovations such as indoor positioning applications, cloud economics with 5G and AI applications, intelligent RAN control, machine learning load balancing, and energy-efficient network deployment solutions.
O-RAN Release 003 includes enhancements to RAN Slicing and SMO features, and several new features.
It also includes 10 new specification titles.
Next Generation Research Group (nGRG) is a task force within O-RAN ALLIANCE, which focuses on research of open and intelligent RAN principles in 6G and future network standards.
The nGRG plans to hold its 2nd workshop on February 16, 2023 in Prague, Czech Republic, complementing the O-RAN ALLIANCE F2F meetings running in that week.
58 O-RAN ALLIANCE members and participants present 65 demonstrations of their O-RAN based technology and solutions at MWC Barcelona 2023 or the O-RAN Virtual Exhibition
The next Generation Research Group (nGRG) is a newly founded task force within O-RAN ALLIANCE, which focuses on research of open and intelligent RAN principles in 6G and future network standards.
The nGRG held its first face-to-face workshop on October 20, 2022 in Madrid, Spain, complementing the O-RAN ALLIANCE F2F meetings running in that week.

O-RAN ALLIANCE Work Groups and Focus Groups recently published 53 new technical documents completing its Release 002. It includes 2 new specification titles:
Dr. Alex Jinsung Choi has been elected as new chairman of the O-RAN ALLIANCE’s Board of Directors. The Board appointed Stefan Engel-Flechsig as O-RAN ALLIANCE’s COO.
The O-RAN ALLIANCE Security Work Group, or WG11, continues developing O-RAN specifications that enable mobile network operators to operate an open RAN that meets and exceeds industry expectations for an open, interoperable, and secure system.
O-RAN ALLIANCE has published a new set of 52 specifications for open and intelligent RAN, as the first batch of the O-RAN Release 003 specifications.
O-RAN ALLIANCE has released another set of technical specifications for open and intelligent RAN published since November 2021. This batch of specs, together with the batch published in July 2021, complete the O-RAN Release 002, the first O-RAN Release focusing on enabling Open Intelligence. To access the O-RAN specifications, please visit our website.
O-RAN ALLIANCE is excited to announce 46 new demonstrations of O-RAN solutions, with 22 planned to be presented at the MWC Barcelona 2022 exhibition. Many of those demos plus an additional 24 demos will be available online at the O-RAN Virtual Exhibition.
The O-RAN ALLIANCE Security Focus Group (SFG) is committed to creating O-RAN specifications that enable mobile network operators to deploy and operate an open RAN that meets and exceeds industry expectations for an open, interoperable, and secure system.
The O-RAN ALLIANCE has successfully conducted its O-RAN Global PlugFest 2021 to demonstrate the functionality and the multi-vendor interoperability of O-RAN based network equipment.
O-RAN technical specification effort progresses with healthy momentum. We keep expanding Radio Access Networks (RAN) standards with open interfaces and intelligent RAN functions. All published specifications will soon be available to the general public upon agreement to the O-RAN ALLIANCE Adopter License.
The O-RAN ALLIANCE is open and transparent in its commitment to transforming the Radio Access Networks industry towards open, intelligent, virtualized and fully interoperable RAN.
