Performance Management is a key function of the O-RAN Service Management and Orchestration (SMO) framework. The O-RAN SMO provides a set of performance management functions that enable network operators to monitor, measure, and optimize the performance of their O-RAN networks.
The O-RAN SMO provides a rich set of performance metrics that cover various aspects of the network, including radio access, transport, and core network performance. These metrics are collected in real-time from different network elements and can be used for real-time monitoring, analysis, and troubleshooting.
We recently developed a new SMO Performance Dashboard and integrated it with AMCOP, learn more in my previous blog post.
The O-RAN SMO also provides advanced analytics capabilities that enable network operators to detect and predict performance issues before they occur. This helps operators to proactively address performance issues, minimize network downtime, and improve overall network quality.
In addition to real-time monitoring and analytics, the O-RAN SMO also provides historical performance analysis capabilities. This enables network operators to analyze performance trends over time, identify areas for improvement, and optimize network performance over the long term.
Overall, the O-RAN SMO's performance management capabilities are critical for ensuring the reliability, availability, and quality of O-RAN networks. By providing real-time monitoring, predictive analytics, and historical analysis, the O-RAN SMO enables operators to optimize network performance, reduce downtime, and improve customer satisfaction.
