Convergence Research Needs for 5G: Is it an Edge, Cloud or Radio Network?

I will present a reference implementation of an Open Programmable end to end 5G Network Architecture based on 3GPP release(s) and O-RAN Alliance specifications built on top of OpenAirInterface(OAI). The architecture is componentized and built on components of Cloud Computing, AI/ML, Service Management/orchestration and low level PHY/MAC radio implementations. The talk showcases the need for cross discipline/domain knowledge to build system level network implementations and motivates a discussion for skills needed in the workforce of tomorrow.

I will share the roadmap of implementation across the two newly formed OAI RAN and Core project groups within the context of Platforms For Advanced Wireless Research (PAWR). The goal is to deliver to the community a real worlddeployable system for experimentation that can also work with commercial implementations across the stack via open interfaces.
