  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  The meeting has been archived.  2019 07 03.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!

    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


    The numbering of 0828's agenda looks not correct...

  10. the links of recording after the meeting 2020 08 05 are all point to a wrong file.
