Amdocs is a key member of the TIP led Accelerating RAN Intelligence in 5G (ARI-5G) consortium backed by funding from Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) to accelerate Open Radio Access Network (Open RAN) deployment in the UK and globally.
The ARI-5G consortium, that includes Amdocs, Acceleran, Attocore, BT, West Midlands 5G, and VIAVI, will implement, test, and demonstrate a standards-based RIC platform with specific software solutions (‘xAPPs and rAPPs’). Amdocs will contribute ML based x/rAPPs that deliver RAN automation use cases for coverage & capacity and massive MIMO optimization.
