  3. Review and Agree to Minutes of Previous Meeting 

    1. There is no comment raised on the 0819 meeting minute.

      1. Decision: Moved by David Streibl and seconded by Juha Oravainen, without objection and abstention, the 20200819 meeting minute is approved.
  4. Review of Today's Agenda

    1. No new items added;
  5. Release Votes and Approval.

    1. None.
  6. Copyright update. 
    1. JInri explained the background again (see previous meeting minute). Recent progress: There is araft proposal in which EC is requesting Board to authorize EC to grant the usage of the copyright in the draft specification to OSC, during the 60-day period of review window. The proposal will be sent to Board for approval. Time is not decided yet.  However, there is a potential risk here.  If some company withdraws the IPR during the review period which results in the modification on the specification, it may impact OSC work. The possibility is very minor.
    2. Question is asked on why the IPR claim is not made in the CR time but after the spec. is finished? Answer is that it is specified in the Consititution. Changing the IPR policy will take too much time and all the member companies have to review.
  7. O-RAN-related business (marketing, WG interaction, TSC/EC update etc.) 

    1. a lot of discussion happend regarding the ONF articles concern raised by John-Paul. Here is the link. 
      1. https://www.sdxcentral.com/articles/news/onf-picks-up-where-o-ran-alliance-falls-short/2020/08/ 
      2. https://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/onf-announces-new-5g-sd-ran-project-301117481.html
    2. Basically, the feeling from the team is surprise and confusion, including: wording is negative to the work OSC is doing; what is the relationship with O-RAN Alliance? Has anyone been contacted in O-RAN? Does OSC need to respond?
    3. Jinri will bring this to EC and TSC next week.
    4. As for MVP, discussion ongoing. Jinri will follow this.
  8. Status of Open Action Items (Old Business).

    1. O-CU PTL to organize a meeting and invite all the relevant projects (O-DU-HIGH, OAM, RIC etc.) and discuss the cooperation/requirements b/w O-CU and the other projects
      1. see below. discussion combined with item 8b.
    2. O-CU PTL to prioritize the items shown on the presentation slide (https://wiki.o-ran-sc.org/download/attachments/10715432/OSC%20O-CU%20RelC%20-ICT-8.12.pptx?api=v2) to make sure some key features such as handoff could be supported for traffic steering use case.
    3. The team to arrange an offline meeting to further discuss the challenges. Gu Su from China Mobile can help.
      1. Ganesh: Call has been held to discuss the O-CU dependency with other projects. Key point raised: copyright issue for the 3GPP-defined yang model. Not have permission to use 3GPP yang model in OSC. Any development of the node, esp. CU and DU has to be on hold. The definition is from 3GPP; work can not move forward coz of this.

      2. Rittwik: possible to write the code with STUB. With STUB, people could download the code. We do not inject to the repo. Just like ASN.1 issue. We do not get permission from 3GPP. However it did not stopping us from contribution. When permission coming through, we can open it up. Suggest to continue the work on health check. Not to defer to dawn.

      3. Ganesh: Refer to model, generate the code, not to store the yang files in the repo?

      4. Martin: Exactly how we do so far. We implement the code, save it in privie repo (a bit strange in open source community). Not have this code in any nexus, jenkin, whatever internal tool chain for OAM and SIM project. Can do domenstation to be functional. However, avoid generated code from YANG files at the time of being since somebody may think code generation is viewed as modification.

      5. Ganesh: Any common code generation tool across projects?

      6. Martin: No. Netconf servers or clients have their own code gernation for their purpose. Generate code from YANG for API. Avoid put it in nexus, or else where public.

      7. Ganesh agree.

      8. Rittwik: 2nd comment: Currently getting permission from 3GPP is stalled. Who is the LS/coordinator from O-RAN to 3GPP. Can OSC have direct line of comuincationw tiht 3GPP. Is that possible? Suggest Jinri to surface this up to the EC/TSC.

      9.  Jinri: Has the copyright issue been setnt o SDFG before? Old or new issue? Martin answered that it is an old issue. (half an year ago)

      10. Jinri: Later on, we need clear record (of the copyright request/issue in the meeting minute. 2nd, some email from SDFG indictes that ETSI officers are on vacation. Will be back recently and speed up the process. 3rd, Jinri will surface this up to EC/TSC; 4th, we need to push SDFG.

      11. AP: Jinri will bring the copyright issue to TSC/EC (to push the process)
      12. Rittwik: could we have direct line of communication with 3GPP? Jinr: difficult.

        For follow-up, 

      13. AP: Martin will send the written copyright issue description to Jinri and Jack so that Jinri could follow up. Ganesh will also elaborate the copyright issue regarding O-CU and O-DU. 

      14. Ganesh: WG5 also asking t how to handle the YANG model for ODU. Will check with them in the background.

    4. Lusheng to create a wiki page with a template for PTL to fill in the Cherry deliverable summary
      1. Thoralf helped to create the page already. Here is the link: Cherry Release (Dec 2020)
      2. AP: PTL to fill in the goal and the scope first. Will have update once a month.
    5. SMO Project PTL Nominations
      1. voting email has been sent out to TOC. No specific deadline for this. 3 votes already right now. 
      2. Q: if Jack could not make it, can the alternate vote it by email? A: yes. 
      3. Trishan will add the invitation to Lusheng. 
      4. Jinri: expect to get this done by next TOC. 
    6. Trishan to send Jinri the voting process.
      1. done. AP closed.
    7. PTL to provide informaion regarding O-RAN-related open source communities
      1. Jinri emphasized the importance of this request, not because of the AP from TSC/EC, but also beneficial to the whole community. Deadline is set by next TOC meeting. Format is flexbile: slides or simple text in the mail.
    8. Mailing list issue (stop "main" for discussion, use "discussion" list)
      1. Recommendation from LF. It is the best practice not to use "main" list for discussion. Suggest to use a dedicated "discussion" list while using "main" for major announcement in the community. The LF staff could help with the transition and no action is requried from the members.
      2. No opposion to this. No fee is invovled. LF could get this done within one day.
      3. Decision: the OSC will use a dedicated "discussion" list for topic discussion.

  3. Review and Agree to Minutes of Previous Meeting 

    • There is no comment raised on the 0812 meeting minute.

      1. Decision: Moved by David Streibl and seconded by Ganesh Shenbagaraman, without objection and abstention, the 20200812 meeting minute is approved.
  4. Review of Today's Agenda

    • One new items added:

      1. Mailing list issue (stop "main" for discussion, use "discussion" list)
  5. Release Votes and Approval.

  6. Copyright update.
    • No update on this. EC is too busy to process the request. Jinri and Jack will continue to follow; Meantime, the written request by John has already been forwarded to EC and the legal team, waiting for response;

    • John: about A1 spec. the code is already ready, whether waiting for 60 days before releaseing the code needs feedback from O-RAN; JInri understood the issue and will continu to follow; 

  7. O-RAN-related business (marketing, WG interaction, TSC/EC update etc.) 

    • Jinri mentioned that he noticed there was a TIFG-RSAC call on Monday discussing the MVP and asked for any update.

    • Rittwik responded that Koo is writing the minutes. This topic is also discussed in RSAC and he has uploaded the material. The goal is to come up with MVP requirement for TIFG.

    • Jinri asked about the concusion? What MVP should be?

    • Rittwik responded different people have diffrent Ideas. From OSC perspecitive, it is clear. We focus on 3 use cases. Want to validate them. For example for traffic steering, the minimum requriements include UE attachment, get E2 data, do the hand over. That is min. requiremens.

    • OSC should provide min. requirement that TIFG can review. And TIFG should come up with test spec. 

    • Jinri invited Rittwik to to attend the call with WG1-UCTG, WG1 co-chairs and TIFG co-chairs to discuss MVP.

    • JInri asked a question on whether high level requirements are not enough for MVP.

    • Rittwik: Not high level. We had call flow  there.

    • Question from Jinri: do you expect description of the features on certain interfaces?

    • Rittwik: call flows dictate what are the components and interface. If a call flow does not show, then not necessary.  E.g. in O-CU discussion, the E1 interface is not required, then it is not required for traffic steering use case (as a minimum requirement).

  8. Status of Open Action Items (Old Business).

    1. O-CU PTL to organize a meeting and invite all the relevant projects (O-DU-HIGH, OAM, RIC etc.) and discuss the cooperation/requirements b/w O-CU and the other projects
      1. see below. discussion combined with item 8b.
    2. O-CU PTL to prioritize the items shown on the presentation slide (https://wiki.o-ran-sc.org/download/attachments/10715432/OSC%20O-CU%20RelC%20-ICT-8.12.pptx?api=v2) to make sure some key features such as handoff could be supported for traffic steering use case.
      1. Ganesh indicated that there was already some discussion on this topic in RSAC. MVP was discussed. A concern is raised in that now we are running out of time for cherry. What content to agree for traffic steering use case in terms of E2 messages, lelvel of  CU-DU functionalities etc.. For this Ganesh followed up DU team. They seemed to be ready with message with some already implemented in Bronze release and the others in this release.  Question is about CU: By when to finish the work? Need decision from TOC on how to proceed considering that we do not have enough time to push all the content. How to prioritize?

      2. Rittwik: There is no enough visibility of CU in the wiki (need weekly meting update. Need weekly meeting with others). It is difficulty to track the features. No idea on aligning or misaligned with planning. Suggest to prioritize some features to ensure traffic steering to be realized.

      3. JInri indicated that there was a re-org inside CMCC and the O-CU PTL has moved to other position. the O-CU work is not the major obligation.  We are discussing with a partner company.

      4. Q: how many features for O-CU in Cherry release?

      5. A: UE Attach; Hand over action, traffic steering app to provide the control action.

      6. Q: Did O-CU project promise to support the features?

      3. Lusheng: a wiki page with template, will it help? Farheen do that last time. Lusheng will help this time.

          1. Q: If becoming the PTL, how many resources to bring in?

          2. A: Have contact with OSN, OPENDALYLIGH etc. Could generate enough interest in the group. They would be interest.

    *Quorum: 50% or more of total TOC voting members unless excluded due to attendance.  We have a quorum and can vote on activities.

  3. Review and Agree to Minutes of Previous Meeting 

    1. There is no comment raised on the 0805 meeting minute.

      1. Decision: Moved by Jinri and seconded by David, without objection and abstention, the 20200805 meeting minute is approved.

    2. Jack also mentioned that the history TOC meetings are also archived. The link is at the bottom of the page.

  4. Review of Today's Agenda

    1. No new agenda items raised. Some topics, such as some remaining question regarding the Bronze Maintenance Release, the nomination status etc. will be discussed in old business section (e.g. release note etc.)

  5. Release Votes and Approval.

    1. Jack mentioned that there were a couple of APs last week regarding the Maintainence Rel.

    2. Lusheng responded: one request is from Jinri which is about a summary of changes. That was done. See https://wiki.o-ran-sc.org/pages/viewpage.action?pageId=14221635. Regarding the licensing, 2 ways. One is to manually went through all the updated files to make sure the licensing is ok. Another check is done by Steve from LF. No problem found. Also clarified that O-CU is not in the scope.

    3. Jack: did that address people’s questions to cover the maintenance Release? Any more question? No response.

    4. Motion moved by Lusheng to accept and release the Bronze maintenance release;

      Jinri seconded;

      There was a comment from John-Paul, indicating that he was not on the call last week. Will vote in the dark. Jack indicated that last week John Keeney was the deputy and he did not raised an critical issues. Indeed, he also indicated some updated on NRT RIC in the maintenance release. John is fine with the response.

      ALL the TOC members voted yes. There is no objection/abstaintion.

      Decision: The maintenance release is approved.

  6. Copyright update.
  • Jack: raised the issue in EC meeting, there was a good discussion. EC members are working together to improve the situation. Right now, the copyright is not available to us until after 60 days;
  • Jinri commented that during the EC call, there was a draft proposal which is to provide “draft approval” for the usage of copyright within 60 day window. However, that was just an idea. Still need further confirmation from EC in the future.

 

  1. Marketing of the current release (WG, LF, PR)

    1. Jinri indicated that this item is not just about marketing. It should be related to many other O-RAN issues. Suggest to change the name to O-RAN-related business (EC/TSC/WG/, marketing etc.);

    2. Jinri indicated recently O-RAN has initated the work on TSC-level minimum viable product (MVP) which is important to OSC’s future planning. Will come back with more information when there is more consolidated result.

    3. Jack also indicated that more representation should be in the RSAC from different companies. All the major companies involved should be part of the RSAC committee. PTL have already been there. Operators should also be there too. So people could understand better. Sometime, two lines of items means 2-year coding. Understanding where the SW is from our standpoint to where we can achieve, the goal is important to their process. RSAC should be involved in the discussion. At least some people. It is daunting to steer through the list of spec. and capabilities for any particular release. Always a lot of opportunity there. Yet what to focus with the limited resource? How to do that? Getting more people involved. RSAC is important.

    4. Lusheng will be leaving on from the assignment from a couple of weeks later, expecting people to step in and help; will be some big gap (lusheng has been doing a lot); need more participation in that space; ATT will participate yet need someone to take leadership there;

  2. Status of Open Action Items (Old Business).

    1. O-CU project to provide O-CU introduction on Cherry planning
      1. O-CU update. See the presentation. https://wiki.o-ran-sc.org/download/attachments/10715432/OSC%20O-CU%20RelC%20-ICT-8.12.pptx?api=v2

      2. Questions are raised on e.g. whether the handover procedure could be supported, how/when the O-CU could be integrated with O-DU-HIGH. Some discussion on this. No conclusion. A suggestion from Jack is to request O-CU PTL to organize a meeting and invite all the relevant projects (O-DU-HIGH, OAM, RIC etc.) and discuss the cooperation. Another suggestion from Rittwik is to prioritize the items shown on the slide to make sure some key features such as handoff could be supported for traffic steering use case. It is indicated that if we wait for the 3GPP O-CU features to be finished and then add on the E2 support, it will be two release late.

      3. AP: O-CU PTL to organize a meeting and invite all the relevant projects (O-DU-HIGH, OAM, RIC etc.) and discuss the cooperation/requirements b/w O-CU and the other projects
      4. AP: O-CU PTL to prioritize the items shown on the presentation slide (https://wiki.o-ran-sc.org/download/attachments/10715432/OSC%20O-CU%20RelC%20-ICT-8.12.pptx?api=v2) to make sure some key features such as handoff could be supported for traffic steering use case.
    2. PTLs to keep Cherry deliverable summary tables up to date
      1. A reminder to make sure work is ongoing. Will go throught the table in the upcoming week;

    3. SMO Project PTL Nominations
      1. Currently there are two nomination from Ericsson and VMWare. The nomination will be open until next week TOC call. After that, the voting will be kicked off.

      2. AP: Jack will talk with Trisan offline to make sure the voting process is right.

      3. Next TOC call, the candidates will be invited to give a short introduction talk.

  3. Standing Agenda Items (Brief Status of Ongoing Activities)

    1. Release Manager Trishan de Lanerolle /Release Planning: Weekly TOC Scheduling

      1. Bronze Maintenance Release

        1. Matin not here. Alex made the presentation which is on https://wiki.o-ran-sc.org/display/OAM/2020-08-12+OAM+report

        2. There was a question out there relevant to OTF team and Alex is suggested to reach David Kinsey for help.

        3.  Question from David: If go with DECA microseverice, how much of the DCAE needed up and running in the environment for the OSC to be functional? No conclusion/answer to it. Will be discussed in RSAC. In particular, it is also related to the job division b/w SMO, OAM, ONAP.

          David: RSAC this week not holding meeting, rittwik not available. Suggest to hold this question off and line it up after we have the SMO vote to make sure have right people on; Later there will be two RSAC meetings per week. We are already a little behind for the cherry;

        4. Jack: Regarding how to work with other projects, EC is pushing us to enhance the cooperation; would like to make sure RSAC involved in any requirements we asked for. There is a Jira request on our side document that request and how we can use it. Be careful about how much we build requirement for ONAP. Not all the communities are committed to ONAP. Have to make sure the committeement we made. That is why we need more participation in RSAC going forward. Need better job of coordination;

        5.  Tracy: for some of the requirements that are understood, are you meaning creating corresponding jira ticket in the OSC or coross-referencing? Jack: yes. Not want to duplicate things. There is need to record the process so O-RAN can find out what we are relying on them.

    4. Discussion on Cherry
  5. Release Votes and Approval

    1. SMO Vote: Jack: Last week a few people dropped early.  We got 4 in favor 1 abstaining 1 against.  We need to get to 5 votes across TOC even though we had majority present I want to make sure the TOC takes time to work through it and get approval.  We have a standing motion on creating an SMO project brought by Rittwik on the RSAC committee.  Are there further clarifications.
      1. AT&T, Ericsson, NTT DOCOMO, and Nokia voted in favor.  Jinri abstained.
      2. Jinri: I would like to change my vote to Yes.
      3. William from Orange votes in favor.
        1. Vote to add the SMO project to O-RAN SC.
        2. On motion made by Rittwik Jana
        3. Seconded by John-Paul Lane
        4. VOTE: Vote taken, item passed
      4. Jack: We need to add the SMO to wiki and create a repo in gerrit. ActionRittwik Jana add the SMO project to the wiki and gerrit.  
      5. Jack: We will need a PTL.  Looking for people to take on a role as a PTL for the new SMO project.  We should be following Best Practices.  As an interested party anyone can contribute to the project.  Requires an LF ID.  We prefer you use your company's email.  If you want to take a more active role you can offer to be a committer.  There are a small number of committers per project, minimum 2, maximum 5.  The PTL can also be a committer.
      6. You also have to sign the CLA agreement for licensing.  There are two different licenses
        1. Apache license
        2. O-RAN license
        3. For SMO we expect contributions under the Apache license.  We are not under the 3GPP interfaces.  One of the questions asked by EC.  For RIC Near RT controller we have separate applications.  We are going to try to capture these applications as SMO applications and continue to see if that works or we need to separate.  R-Apps under the SMO projects.  We will create a structure that clearly identifies the people.
      7. ActionRittwik Jana start the Principles we will kick the wiki off with these principles.  The RSAC has proposed minimum viable product.  Looking at O-RAN Alliance working groups specifications.  If we don't find specs there then we try to work with them towards the specification so we are not creating throw away code.
    2. Lusheng: Email voting request was sent to the ML on July 9th.  The vote if for 3 procedures and best practices. 
      1. All gerrit code submissions to include at least 1 Jira issue.  This is for tracking purposes.  This creates a Link between gerrit submissions and Jira issues.  
        1. We currently have 3 votes.  Who wants to vote in favor?
        2. Jinri: I thought I already cast my vote via email.  I vote yes.
        3. Jack: I vote yes.
        4. That brings us to 5 votes. 
        5. VOTE: Vote taken, item passed
        6. Lusheng get clarification from LF how to list multiple issue IDs to gerrit. 
        7. Will this be a gerrit pre-check?
        8. Yes, the system will return with a warning message.
      2. License scans are not done until one or two weeks prior to a release.  We require more time.  LF does not scan SCP repos.  That leaves those repos open. LF does have a tool called nexus iq.  People have been using that to do license scans.  Because of the language the security vulnerability may not be helpful for Java but for Go C++ is not as helpful.  Requesting all the repos to add this nexus iq job.  Action item for repo owners is to define a job.  There are samples available for you to follow.Any questions?
        1. On motion made by Lusheng to include a license scan to all repos.
        2. Seconded by Jinri Huang 
        3. Vote taken item passed
      3. Adopting semantic versioning for the artifacts (libraries and docker images and use it for the artifacts).  The action item is for the developers and contributors in the future please use major, minor, and patch versioning.  We can write some best practices in the future but this is the format.  Another action item is what will be the best way to verify a version.
        1. On motion made by Lusheng to include a semantic versioning process to all repos.
        2. Seconded by Jinri Huang .
        3. Vote taken item passed
  6. Copyright updates
    1. No updates on copyrights
    2. Jinri: Zbynek sent an official copyright notification to us. 
    3. Jack: We have an action item that we have to make a proposal to the EC with Stefan but that is still in process.
    4. John-Paul: Is this the 60 day impacts?
    5. Jack: No we were talking about the copyright permission from O-RAN Alliance on any copyrighted material.  The 60 day gets approved by us and we're refining the language for that feature.  That is an alliance issue when the material can be managed copyright material.
    6. John-Paul: Is that resolved?
    7. Jack: Has the 60 day copyright IPR issues resolved?
    8. Action/ Jinri Huang  will check with Zbynek of whether this will imapact.

  8. Status of Open Action Items (Old Business)

  9. Standing Agenda Items (Brief Status of Ongoing Activities)

    1. Release Manager Trishan de Lanerolle /Release Planning: Weekly TOC Scheduling

      1. Bronze Maintenance Release
        1. August 1st is the close out date.  I will look to Lusheng to give us a report but I think the progress is less than hoped for in a few areas. 
        2. Lusheng: Status: we have a couple deliverables planned. 
          1. O-DU Low running in the OSC integration lab and completing the O-DU high.  This is lagging behind.  We've been having system related issues. We had 2 dell servers.  For some reason the NIC and FPGA cards do not work right on these two servers.  Later we got the wolf pass servers.  We're having problems installing OS on this server.  It will not make it to this weekend.
        3. KPI-MON xApp flow the near real time xApp team have been trying to build the docker image with other xApps to complete this flow.  There were some problems with the routing. 
          1. Matti: The subscription manager is rejecting the request.  I reached out to the team but have not gotten the response.  The internal communication is working but given the time I am not sure we will deliver.
        4. Additional minor improvements in documentation and the integration repo to upload demo scripts for people to run the demo.
        5. Rittwik: O-DU High is ready to integrate with O-DU Low.  
        6. Lusheng: The O-DU High can follow the future enhancement to move feature code in Bronze release, update their release notes.
        7. John Keeney  We don't see the verification jobs when we release.  I assume there will be full integration tests. I want to know if we can help.
        8. Lusheng; The issue is the base image that your docker file requires has expired on the staging docker registry.  We need to generate that first. 
        9. Henrik Anderson: Will the staging jobs be ready?
        10. Lusheng: The LF has two registrys STAGING and RELEASE.  If it's in the staging registry it will live there for 30 days. Jenkins has a job that will regenerate the newest version of the base image. That image gets refreshed.  It will exist in the staging repo.  The build reference is to the previous version of the base image.  We need to figure out to regenerate.  
        11. Henrik: When we push things to the Bronze branch they don't exist in the staging repo.
        12. Lusheng: Let's work offline.
        13. Jack: We are looking for people who will be interested in Integration and Test.  Lusheng will be reducing his time.  We need more participation in the integration and test area beyond their project.  We need coordination work to have a few more people involved.

      2. Jack: Any PTL who wants to leverage the simulator beyond planning and generating data should communicate to your their requests and requirements.  Anyone who has needs in that space reach out to Rittwik Jana for the Cherry release.  Since there is a cost associated we want to make sure we're getting everyone's input.
      3. Are all the use cases finalized for Cherry?
      4. Rittwik: Yes, they are in the wiki and lifecycle management for the SMO and the traffic steering and health-check use cases.
