Viavi testing solution for 5G O-RAN now running on AWS Outpost
Viavi Solutions Inc. recently announced availability of the TeraVM O-CU Tester on AWS Outposts, marking the industry’s first O-RAN Central Unit (O-CU) test solution deployed on Amazon Web Services (AWS) Managed Services (AMS) at the network edge. As 5G services leverage edge computing, the ability to validate application and infrastructure performance at any point in the network has become essential to ensuring quality of experience.
In order to monetize 5G investments, service providers, device manufacturers, and application developers are striving for new paradigms in user experiences. Real-time, multi-player games, smart cities, autonomous cars, and remote healthcare all require ultra-low latencies, which ultimately can be enabled by 5G Ultra Reliable Low Latency Communication (URLLC) and Multi-access Edge Computing (MEC). In parallel, operators worldwide are adopting open radio access networks to reduce infrastructure costs and lower the barrier to entry for new product innovation.
