Course Overview

The O-RAN Alliance specifies service management and orchestration, along with O-RAN-compliant RAN functions and an Open-Cloud or O-Cloud infrastructure. This gives wireless network operators the automation, intelligence, and open architecture they need to meet the demands of Industry 4.0, including use cases like augmented reality and virtual reality.

In this two-week, self-paced course, you will learn about both the Service Management and Orchestration (SMO) and the O-Cloud described and specified by the O-RAN Alliance. You will gain an understanding of how these technologies work together to create open and intelligent mobile networks. You will also learn about the benefits of O-RAN, including increased flexibility, reduced costs, and improved scalability.
