Amdocs, with its expertise and leadership in open and disaggregated networks, is especially excited to be part of this initiative supporting its customers in achieving their network vision and objectives.
In the face of rapidly evolving technology, addressing the complexities of modern networks demands innovative solutions. Amdocs is a pivotal member of the TIP-led Accelerating RAN Intelligence Across Networks Ecosystems (ARIANE) consortium, which with backing from Department of Science Innovation & Technology (DSIT), seeks to accelerate Open Radio Access Network (Open RAN) deployment both in the UK and on a global scale. The project, an extension of the ongoing UK Future Radio Access Networks Competition (FRANC) ARI-5G initiative, is set to complete its mission within 18 months. Once concluded, it aims to enhance operator trust in RIC applications for RAN deployments, drive RIC and application development, and improve standards for interface design, API flows and security-by-design.
The consortium, comprising Amdocs UK Limited, TIP (Telecom Infra Project), Accenture UK, Arqit UK, BT Group plc, HCL Technologies, Net Reply UK, Viavi Solutions UK and VMWare UK, and backed by support from Adtran, will carry out carrier-grade simulated testing for three DSIT-highlighted xAPPs/rAPP use cases across various RIC platforms.
