Course Overview

This two-week, self-paced course provides insights into how aspects of 5G RAN disaggregation contribute to an open, O-RAN architecture.

In this course, you will learn how RAN disaggregation lends itself to an open, virtual, multi-vendor RAN. You will explore open fronthaul (option 7-2x) for O-RAN and how O-RAN nodes are implemented in the O-RAN reference architecture.

This course has been created by Awards Solutions.

Course Objectives

After completing this course, learners will be able to:

  • Describe key drivers for 5G RAN disaggregation (RAN latency, fronthaul bandwidth, resource pooling).
  • Explain the 5G split RAN architecture.
  • Identify different RAN components and interfaces (CU, DU, RU and fronthaul, midhaul, backhaul).
  • Describe the implementation of the 5G RAN in an O-RAN architecture (O-CU, O-DU, O-RU, O-Cloud).
  • Explain O-RAN operational interfaces and the need for open fronthaul.
  • Describe O-RAN management interfaces (O1, O2, E2 and A1) and their operations.
