Title Network Functions Virtualisation (NFV) Release 5; Architectural Framework; Report on NFV support for virtualization of RAN
Scope and Field
of Application
The work item will investigate the advances concerning the virtualization of RAN and profile the NFV framework to determine how it can support vRAN use cases. More specifically, the work item will analyse
- vRAN use cases and map them to the current NFV concepts supported by the NFV architectural framework.
- the state and potential enhancements for specific capabilities to support vRAN use cases, such as acceleration and platform capabilities (synchronization, real-time, etc.).
- the aspects of NFVI provisioning and HW management, and
- the configuration of NFV-MANO and NFVI/platform in consideration of particular vRAN deployment characteristics, such as small but highly distributed sites.
The work item is expected to identify and provide recommendations for normative and/or other informative work. In the development of the work item, strong coordination will be promoted with relevant organizations such as O-RAN Alliance and 3GPP on the exchange of (potential) requirements and use cases. The resulting deliverable will be informative.
