Viavi releases 2021 updates to the Test Suite for O-RAN Specifications

11 May 2021

Viavi Solutions introduces updates to its industry-first Test Suite for O-RAN Specifications. The O-RAN ALLIANCE’s specifications for open radio access networks are being adopted by operators and equipment manufacturers worldwide, to reduce infrastructure costs and lower the barrier to entry for new product innovation. 

Viavi says the test suite has been augmented to include use cases of critical importance as O-RAN becomes adopted at scale, as well as learnings from customer engagements around the globe. Based on its position validating network products for operators and manufacturers worldwide – including all Tier-1 network equipment manufacturers – Viavi boasts to have the most comprehensive O-RAN test platform on the market, with CUSM-plane parameters used by more vendors than any other solution. 

The company is also active in specifications development, as the editor of interoperability test specifications in the open fronthaul (WG4) and open interfaces (WG5) working groups, and the co-chair of multiple working groups at the O-RAN ALLIANCE. “Viavi’s active contributions have enabled it to develop partnerships with complementary solutions from best-of-breed vendors,” the company argues.
