REMINDER: Webinar: Deutsche Telekom Deploys ONAP in O-RAN TOWN, Thurs, 8 AM PT

Brandon Wick
 

LFN Community:

This is a reminder that we have a webinar with DT coming up this week on Thursday, November 18th, at 8:00 AM Pacific. Register for the event today to learn about how they deployed ONAP into production and get your questions answered. The recording and slide deck will be sent to all registrants post-event.

LFN Webinar: Deutsche Telekom Deploys ONAP in O-RAN TOWN
Deutsche Telekom is on their way of bringing ONAP from the labs into pilot production. In their O-RAN Town project, DT deployed in the city of Neubrandenburg a multi-vendor Open RAN trial network for 4G and 5G services with massive MIMO integrated into the live network — the first in Europe. To automate services on all network domains, DT introduced a vendor-independent Service Management and Orchestration (SMO) component based on ONAP open source. The SMO is to be at the heart of complete lifecycle management of all O-RAN components in this deployment. In this webinar, hear from  Marc Fiedler, Sebastian Zechlin, and Andreas Geissler from Deutsche Telekom about how they overcame deployment challenges and the benefits using ONAP.

LFN Webinar: Orange Deploys ONAP in Production
Realizing a long-pursued goal of using the Open Networking Automation Platform (ONAP), Orange has deployed and trialed an automation framework powered by ONAP. The current use case, in production in Orange Egypt, includes automating network services, network connectivity and resource management inside IP/MPLS, and configuration changes such as provisioning virtual private networks. Through this initiative, Orange has demonstrated that ONAP has reached the maturity and modularity for network operators to take combinations of ONAP projects and components from proof of concept to production. Join this webinar with Olivier Augizeau from Orange and Mohamed Hasan and team from Orange Egypt to learn about the challenges, benefits, and tips for deploying ONAP in production networks.
