    2. ONES = LF Networking Conference tentatively August/ September (Los Angeles).  Open Networking & Edge Summit Event
 
  7. Status of Open Action Items (Old Business)Jack - How does the OSC evolve from where we're at.  Every piece is under construction.  O-DU Emulation will help with that.

      2. Jack - 7a was to discuss O-1 functionality and how there work will impact.
      3. Engwei - John, Martin, and High Street met on how O-1 testing is required here.  We concluded that there will be further dicussions for use cases. requirements for simulators.  What measurements and pm counters over to RIC for dynamic traffic steering.  We discussed E-1.  From Viavi we will make sure we are tracking the team.  John mentioned the need is for the Cherry release and anything for the Bronze.  Thanked the team for bringing Viavi up to speed.
      4. Action ENGWEI KOO  - will add a deck.  Looking at the swim lane tables to track how Viavi will

      2. ActionRittwik Jana upload the slide to the RSAC page.
    6. Action/ Jack will update the O-RAN SC release timeline with Cherry and D release.
      1. Jack - Reviewed Releases page.  Action/ TOC provide feedback to Jack regarding the Cherry and D Release calendars on the Releases page
      2. Rittwik - WG input requirements from 14 - 20th of June.  Not sure that WG3 requirements will be done by then.
        1. Then we won't use them.  We can't be constantly changing so developers don't know what to build.  If we don't have then we will rework the use cases.  We can shift things a little.  The timelines are aggressive enough without changes.
        2. Rittwik - Please bring this chart up on this point to the TSC.  
        3. Jack - If it's not in the Cherry Release then it will get into the plan for D but won't happen until a year later.
        4. David - What do you mean by working group input freeze?
          1. Jack - We've been asked to coordinate with the O-RAN WGs.  We have Bronze release touchpoints.  The goal was to look for WG input.  When we complete our planning we will do a review with them.  We have a touch base twice.  Dev Sprint 4 ends 4-26.  We will give a demo of the functionality we plan to release.  In this case it's Bronze.  For Cherry I added the comment that we'd be freezing what specifications we'll be working with. 
          2. Thoralf - There is a difference between specifications.  
          3. Jinri - The freeze is not the freeze of specs.  We recognize at this time the latest spec we have from WG.
          4. In week 21 we will use version spec 2.1 that O-RAN Alliance is expecting to release in week 23.
          5. Jack - we agree on which specs we are working.  I'll be happy to use a different word than "freeze".
          6. Action/ Jinri Huang will point Thoralf Czichy to the appropriate WG specification times.  There are 3 trains for the specifications.  
          7. Jack - We need to figure out how to align.  I expect they will be in the same release window.
            1. Rittwik - We will face challenges with the current situation.
            2. Jack - Each release has it's own set of decisions.  We can stretch out a little bit.  If we stretch out in ETE testing then we have stretch.  The community can review if we provide it to the TOC.
    7. ActionDavid Streibl update Vote Release Name page with the D release name options.
      1. David - There are very few colors with the word D in it.  It will be a fairly short list to avoid the "dark"  and "deep" colors.
    8. Action/ Jinri Huang will provide Jack with the WG2 and WG3 adjusted timeline for Cherry and D release.
    9. ActionJinri Huang provide the TOC with the new O-RAN Alliance timeline.
    10. ActionThoralf Czichy share the OSC Alignment Aspects slides with Jack.  We have means to align with WG3.  Rittwik - We need a timeline chart for C and D.  We need to know our timelines of what is at stake.  We need this for all WGs.
    11. ActionTracy Van Brakle  Trishan de Lanerolle set up a call with Jack and David because the Community asked for a release manager.
      1. Jack - will continue the discussion to see how we can improve.  We're a young community.  Some of our needs are different than other communities.  As a community if people find better ideas, or ways to do things bring them to the PTL or the TOC.  There may be things we can learn and get better at.
    12. ActionJohn Keeney open a trouble ticket with LF for the Confluence calendar issue.
      1. ActionTrishan de Lanerolle let us know the outcome of the ticket that John Keeney  opened regarding the Calendar synchronization.

        1. Jack- As people know we have a plan and we have decisions with the broader TOC.
      5. Jack - David - Was there any update with the test focus group?
        1. David - William was working on that task.
        2. William - We are working on test and integration specification.  Work is ongoing. Orange will provide input next week.  We have made good progress.  The aspects from Open source simulations could be interesting.
          1. Jack - Has that group provided a plan for simulation?
            1. William - Yes, Viavi is leading the test and integration focus group.  They have great suggestions.  We are trying to work with them to organize interfaces it will be a key aspect.  We are trying to get more input from other WGs to understand their specifications and we are taking their needs into account.
            2. Jack - Action/ William Diego Maza work with Rittwik Jana and set up a meeting with whoever the leadership is in the test committee so we are synchronized with the other TOC members.  The key is to get some of the decision makers from the test group so we can have their input.

  1. The "Zoom Meeting Recording" link under the "2019 05 01" Meeting minutes points to an O-RAN-SC charter PDF instead of the expected .MP4 file

    1. Ranny Haiby  I have updated the link to the correct link.  Thanks for catching!

  2. The "Zoom Meeting Recording" link under the "2019 0515" Meeting minutes points to 2019 0508 meeting recording.MP4 file.


  3. Jun Hyuk Song , I was unable to upload the May 15 recorded zoom meeting.  I opened a trouble ticket.  I'll keep you posted.

  4. I suggest creating one sub page per week to record meeting minutes to prevent scroll overflow of this page.

    1. Viswanath Kumar Skand Priya Yes, All archived minutes are on the side navigation.  This page is reserved for future meetings.

  5. July 3rd 7.2 recording is the same as June 26th.  Actually, Jinri explained meeting results with David & Inspur, and Xiaohua Zhang from Wind River confirmed the cooperation with Inspur on StarlingX. Jack concerned about the relationship between upstream and OSC, suggested Inspur to do work different from upstream in OSC. So it is better to revise it.

  6. gao xian , thank you for bringing the issue to my attention.  I have updated the video file.  The meeting has been archived.  2019 07 03.  Good luck!

  7. Farheen Cefalu

    A few comments on Aug. 7 meeting minute.


    1, throughout the whole minute, it should be "O-RAN" instead of "ORAN";

    2, In New business → POC and Spec investigation from EC discussion: it should be "MWC" instead of "NWC". There are 3 such occurrence. 

    3, In 5.d.3 regarding Ganesh and Alex's AP: it should be ODU instead of ODL;


  8. Farheen Cefalu


    One more comment regarding the Aug. 7 minute.


    On the last AP, the POC could be video, ppt, or live/static demo

  9. Farheen Cefalu
