Quorum reached.


  • Review of last week's minutes

Review was deferred due to fact minutes not posted. Next meeting to review 2022 12 08 & 2022 12 15 Minutes


  • G Release Vote

There was a motion called for the conditional G-release. Two projects are incomplete (RICAPP and O-DU Lo) but the respective PTLs have an opportunity to update with release summary by Friday December 16th 2022, otherwise they will be excluded from the release and potentially added to the maintenance release in the new year. Specific project discussions:


      1. SMO: Updated Release Page for G
        Non-RT RIC, John K confirmed they are Good to go. Some Documentation outstanding.
      2. Near-RT RICPLT, Thoralf reported complete
      3. RICAPP – Sunil to update by 16th December to make the release.
      4. O-DU High, Ankit: Released and Documented. May have fixes for the maintenance release.
      5. O-DU Lo: There is no O-DU Lo in the release and was removed from release page. Need to confirm status by December 16th but PTL needs to update release page.
      6. OAM, Alex:  Good to go with G-Release page updated.
      7. SIM, David. Ready for G Release however there is an issue that needs to be discussed for the H-Release. In the case of the ETSI Mano, Tacker is part of DMS and hence part of O-Cloud. When with is used the kubernetes Interface, it is a consumer of DMS and part of the SMO. Hence, the proposal is that orchestration to determine tacker that is either part of the Cloud or part of the SMO. OSC is looking for a contributor for Orchestration.
      8. INF, Jackie: Ready to go. H-Release may require more interaction with OAI and have O-Cloud roadmap impact.
      9. AI/ML, Sandeep: Complete


The motion was carried for the G-Release. If the conditions above are met by Friday 16th December.


  • Motion for New Repo for an xAPP for Anomaly Detection (AD)

Sunil described the standalone AD xAPP for consideration for the H-Release and the request for a new Repo. Question was raised if the xAPP had been reviewed and approved by the RSAC, to see how it aligns with the AI/ML project, how to get the Cell Data and how it fits within the infrastructure. Consensus was that it had not reviewed so a discussion about the application, that it is not linked with the AI/ML framework, is part of the RIC Application and that the data is generated from the Viavi RIC Test Platform. Thoralf noted the platform is independent of the service model.  

Motion vote was help and approved to create the new Repo.

  • Ericsson will Scribe for January, except for the first week of January, where Viavi will be scribe.
