O-RAN Testing and Integration Focus Group (TIFG) defines O-RAN ALLIANCE’s overall approach to testing and integration, including:
O-RAN PlugFests support the ecosystem players in testing and integration of their implementations, ensuring the openness and interoperability of O-RAN solutions from different providers.Discover PlugFest Virtual Showcase
Certification and Badging of O-RAN solutions represents a comprehensive mechanism ensuring confidence in the O-RAN solutions for both the operator as well as the vendor community.
Conformance certification is defined as a verification of compliance of the Devices under Test (DUT) to O-RAN interface or reference design specifications, using O-RAN Conformance test specifications.
Interoperability badging is defined as an assessment of interoperability of pairs of Devices under Test (DUT), which are implemented according to O-RAN interface specifications, using O-RAN Interoperability Test (IoT) specifications.
E2E system integration badging is defined as an assessment of end-to-end system integration of groups of Devices under Test (DUT), which are implemented according to O-RAN interfaces, using O-RAN E2E test specifications.
