& Use Cases
Open Source Collaborators
Our first PoC is around cloud native 5G. The Aarna Networks Multi Cluster Orchestration Platform (AMCOP) orchestrates a 5GC + Next Gen Firewall (NGFW) onto a Red Hat OpenShift cluster. We will add 5GRAN to the PoC as well as network slicing. See more information here.
Our second PoC is a Private LTE/5G over CBRS with edge computing demo in the LF Edge Akraino community. Initially we are focusing on orchestration of Free5GC with Aarna Networks Multi Cluster Orchestration Platform (AMCOP) product followed by onboarding of Magma 5GC and OAI 5G RAN.
Our third PoC an IoT framework orchestration demo in the LF Edge Akraino Public Cloud Edge Interface (PCEI) blueprint Connectivity. AMCOP is used to orchestrate Azure IoT Edge with Azure IoT Hub and the same demo is also shown for AWS GreenGrass.
If you would like to replicate either of these demos in your lab, please Contact Us
5G + Edge B2B computing Use Cases
5G Core Orchestration
AMCOP can be used for 5G core orchestration, management, and automation. AMCOP supports the required CM/FM/PM interfaces. AMCOP has established interop with several 5GC vendors.
5G RAN/O-RAN Orchestration
Similar to 5G Core, AMCOP can be used for orchestration, management, automation of 5G RAN/O-RAN. AMCOP support O1 and A1 interfaces to O-RAN. It can also be used to realized a NONRTRIC.
Not only can AMCOP be used with cloud native network functions (CNF) but also multi-access edge computing (MEC) applications for orchestration, management, and automation. See the IoT case study above.
5G will include physical network functions (PNF) such as the radio, CPE for fixed wireless access, or regular switch/router products to build the various transport networks. AMCOP can manage these devices over YANG/NETCONF, RESTCONF, REST, and other API types.
