The MWC ONF Pavilion hosted four kiosks:
The SD-RAN community kiosk featured a demonstration of the ongoing Berlin SD-RAN Trial being hosted by Deutsche Telekom and interconnects components from over 8 vendors using the SD-RAN RIC, including Intel and Radisys. Three RIC use cases were demonstrated: Mobility Load Balancing (MLB), PCI-conflict resolution and KPI monitoring.

Aether is ONF’s open source 5G Connected Edge platform for enterprises. In the Aether kiosk we unveiled a demonstration of our new enterprise portal used by the network administrator for configuring network slices and QoS, and providing visibility into network slice health, RAN status and connected device information. The portal is designed for ease of secure centralized visibility and administration of enterprise edge sites.

It was great seeing the ONF community coming together in person again, including Adtran, Amdocs, APS Networks, Arm, BiSDN, Deutsche Telekom, Edgecore, Eurecom, GSLabs, Infosys, Intel, Netsia, Radisys, Rimedo, STL, Türk Telekom, and Zyxel. It’s been too long, and the value of getting together face-to-face was apparent to everyone.
