          1. 12-07: Tracy Van Brakle The roadmap of the blueprint is in the form of a white paper and it's a drafty draft on OSFG contribution page. David Kinsey where's O-Cloud in this phase 1 (early iteration)? Nephio is just an enabler. We need O-Cloud to interconnect our labs. Tracy Van Brakle For the road map, introduce O-Cloud as a starting point, 4th quarter 2023; and then Cloudify O-Cloud, 2nd quarter 2024 (deployment by the SMO using O2 interface). David Kinsey when should we be targeting a demonstration with an OAI network function, using an OSC SMO to deploy it with Nephio enablers? 3 roadmaps (OSC, OAI, Nephio) have to be aligned. Saw demo at the workshop that use SMO + Near RT RIC + xApp on A1 to make policy change for DU bandwidth. So something is there but needs to be more generalized. Bala from Red Hat indicates that Nephio is creating their user stories and priorities for the R3 release (starting early 2024 towards the middle of 2024), and O2 IMS is one of them. Tracy Van Brakle Doug and I will see where srsRAN might fit in, and when if they do. srsRAN expressed their interest to participate.

                1. Jinri Huang From Zbynek & Jindrich: O-RAN changing PR process so no new PRs this year.
                  1. Jinri Huang O-RAN can promote the PR if issued through OAI channel & Add links to it
                2. Irfan Ghauri OAI can help here. Draft proposed. Ongoing & will revert with an update.
                  1. 11-09 AP Irfan Ghauri For OAI/OSC workshop: will revert with an update on PR content & channel
            4. 11-16: Irfan Ghauri The workshop was generally very well attended. NTIA and NSF attended to give government perspective on O-RAN. Good to get the opportunity to address government agencies directly. Demos were very well received. Presented the next phases of collaboration between OSC and OAI e.g. Nephio and OSC collaboration for SMO and relationship to OAI. Meeting next week with Radisys to discuss potential integration of OAI CU with OSC. Next steps are to try to operationalise the OSC collaboration roadmap with, for example, Nephio. Recordings of workshop, poster sessions and demo sessions to be made available online shortly. Need to have a plan / roadmap for OSC features through 2024 similar to the OAI roadmap.
            5. 11-16: Tracy Van Brakle There is an opportunity for teams to present demo proposals at the upcoming North America O-RAN plugfest readout on Nov 29th. Tracy will post further information to the public mailing list. 
            6. 11-30: Tracy Van Brakle Readout meeting took place for North American O-RAN plugfest. Some outstanding demonstrations were presented. Demonstrators and participants from industry an university faculty students. Mini-PR to be discussed to mark this event. Funding is starting to come from O-RAN Alliance and government agencies (in US and beyond). Martin Skorupski it was good to see things moving in alignment between the O-RAN Alliance and open source.
            7. 11-30: David Kinsey will prepare PR regarding the Boston meeting of OSC and OAI. Irfan Ghauri has shared the summary of meeting with OAI steering meeting. Interesting to learn that Nephio has input into the SMO (FOCOM). 
            8. 11-30: Irfan Ghauri Next steps are to present a joint roadmap. Should be presented to and reviewed by the OSC TOC. David Kinsey there is a challenge for OSC to do better with creating a multi-release feature roadmap.
            9. 11-30: Irfan Ghauri follow-up discussions are already taking place for the traffic network functions. For example, Radisys are working on the O-DU integration with OAI. The workshop really helped to kickstart this collaboration between OSC and OAI. David Kinsey Do we continue to use the OSC O-DU (Low) or do we start to look towards OAI for this function? Ankit Barve has taken an action point at RSAC to investigate a mix n match approach with OSC and OAI for O-DU. Should have a clearer picture on this over the coming weeks.
            10. 12-07: Irfan Ghauri  The document that I prepared basically was co-signed by Ganesh and I'd like permission from Ganesh to be able to present. David Kinsey we'll put it on for next week.
            11. 12-07: David Kinsey has a draft for the joint workshop PR but needs get approval from AT&T. Still a pending question about O-DU-low, needs a decision with the roadmap to whether to keep the O-DU-low project. Need to send those questions to Lewis from Intel.
            12. 12-14: We walked through the OAI O-CU + OSC O-DU-High + OAI O-DU-Low presentation by Ganesh Shenbagaraman and Irfan Ghauri to be found in the Toc Documents folder

          4. 11-30: Jinri Huang Plans to approach Jindrich Brett in O-RAN Alliance to confirm process for voting on a vendor co-chair for OSFG
          5. 12-07: Tracy Van Brakle The roadmap of the blueprint is in the form of a white paper and it's a drafty draft on OSFG contribution page. David Kinsey where's O-Cloud in this phase 1 (early iteration)? Nephio is just an enabler. We need O-Cloud to interconnect our labs. Tracy Van Brakle For the road map, introduce O-Cloud as a starting point, 4th quarter 2023; and then Cloudify O-Cloud, 2nd quarter 2024 (deployment by the SMO using O2 interface). David Kinsey when should we be targeting a demonstration with an OAI network function, using an OSC SMO to deploy it with Nephio enablers? 3 roadmaps (OSC, OAI, Nephio) have to be aligned. Saw demo at the workshop that use SMO + Near RT RIC + xApp on A1 to make policy change for DU bandwidth. So something is there but needs to be more generalized. Bala from Red Hat indicates that Nephio is creating their user stories and priorities for the R3 release (starting early 2024 towards the middle of 2024), and O2 IMS is one of them. Tracy Van Brakle Doug and I will see where srsRAN might fit in, and when if they do. srsRAN expressed their interest to participate.

      2. 11-30: David Kinsey Bedminster lab remains down. Considering consolidation into a different AT&T lab, in a different location (still NJ), which is more aligned with OSC work. Access processes should be similar to current access process. AP on David Kinsey and Tracy Van Brakle to review and revert.
      3. 11-30: David Kinsey proposals for lab contract to be reviewed within AT&T. Work is ongoing and progress is being made. Next two weeks are critical in order to get funding from O-RAN Alliance and finalise lab plans. 
    2. Release Planning: Weekly TOC Scheduling Sridhar Rao 
      1. 11-02: Mapping b/w OSC project work and WG spec. work discussed. There is a table for this mapping for H release. See here: H Release (The table at the end of the page). Good example from INF project with a detailed excel file to record the detailed mapping. Jinri encourage the PTL to make such efforts, or at least fill in the table. Some echos on this suggestion. Some comments are that the work is beyond trial and time-consuming. sometime difficult since some spec. may not have stage-3 defined. Another suggestion is to use the conformance spec. Jinri responded that the value of the work is significant. Yet admitted community is contribution-driven. Yet still strongly encourage the team to do this.
      2. 11-02: AP: Jinri to work with Jackie to refine the table template.
        1.  11-09: See AP review above.
          1.  Jinri Huang: This table is for mapping template between project & specs. No update this week. Will continue
      3. 11-09: Sridhar Rao License Scanning will be complete with report by 10 Dec. See checklist on wikipage: Release Checklist#I-Release
      4. 11-09: AP: Sridhar Rao will report back next week on progress/status of release process & checklist
      5. 11-16: Sridhar has reviewed the status of release I documentation. Many documents still outstanding. AP: All PTLs to update release I checklist and ensure a plan to finalise release docs. 
      6. 11-30: Sridhar Rao is not seeing updates on wiki release pages. Based on current lack of progress, it may be difficult to meet release deadlines for December. PTLs and teams need more urgency in updating release I pages / wiki, highlights, release checklist and other release-relevant documentation. Once all documentation is ready, the only thing required is a TOC release vote. 
      7. 11-30: David Kinsey Release I date is provisionally targeting 25th - 29th December. This may be challenging for some. Need to agree a date for the release vote to take place. Thoralf Czichy suggests the 14th December (keeping 21st December as a backup) for the Release I vote. David Kinsey made motion to release on 14th December, Thoralf Czichy seconded. Motion approved.
      8. 12-07: Sridhar Rao From the I release checklist page, only 5 projects NONRTRIC, RICPLT, ODUHIGH*, INF, AIMLFW completed the committed features. Need all PTLs to work and complete by next Thursday for release vote.For the "Release documentation for Blog/Article on Release" item will have a dedicated marketing person to update the wiki and generate a PR for I release. Ankit Barve how about "Features Implemented Mapping to O-RAN Spec by Project" table for I release? David Kinsey It might be kept at the project level for each PTL to fill in the details of the O-RAN specs impacting features. Ankit Barve Propose to add as a last section to the project.

  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. user-bc668

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

    1. user-bc668 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


    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.
