An Open Source O-RAN SMO solution

Industry's first open source O-RAN SMO


O-RAN Service Management and Orchestration

We use a CI/CD Methodology with customer releases every quarter to ensure access to the latest innovations. It’s 100% open source, cloud native, fully disaggregated, light-weight, and vendor agnostic.
What is O-RAN SMO?
The O-RAN Alliance is a worldwide community of telcos, vendors, government, research, and academic organizations creating an open specification for the radio area network (RAN). The specification defines a component called Service Management and Orchestration or SMO that addresses the orchestration, management, and automation aspects of O-RAN.
Why is O-RAN SMO Important?
Amongst the O-RAN components, the SMO is most critical for supporting and managing a multi-vendor RAN environment. With the right SMO, you can choose the best-of-breed network function (RU, CU, DU, and NearRT RIC) providers, offering a technically superior solution while simultaneously reducing costs.
The Aarna Networks Multi Cluster Orchestration Platform (AMCOP) is an ideal O-RAN SMO solution as it's:

A Truly Vendor Agnostic Solution

Many users procure O-RAN SMO and RAN network functions from the same vendor. However, choosing O-RAN SMO from an alternate vendor provides independence and flexibility. At Aarna, we use an open source SMO that avoids vendor lock-in.

Open Source. Cloud Native. Easy-to-Use

See Aarna's O-RAN-RC code contributions and participation.
Open Source
AMCOP is fully open source and aligned with
the Linux Foundation's O-RAN-SC project, giving confidence for O1 and A1 compliance. Other LF Networking projects provide orchestration and network slicing functionality.
Cloud Native
AMCOP is fully cloud native and can be
deployed onto Kubernetes clusters. AMCOP
can be centralized or distributed at the RAN site. AMCOP can work with CNFs, VNFs, or EMSs as well.
Easy to Use
AMCOP is lightweight and easy to deploy, manage, and use. We offer both a GUI and APIs. The GUI includes a custom dashboard for O-RAN for configuration management, fault management,
and performance management.
