Command The 5G Network: VIAVI Introduces Industry's First Field Test Instrument for O-RAN Deployment

10/20/2021 | 06:31am EST

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., Oct. 20, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Viavi Solutions Inc. (VIAVI) (NASDAQ: VIAV) today announced that the OneAdvisor-800™ all-in-one cell site tool can be upgraded with the O-DU Emulation application to verify field deployment of O-RAN radios. As mobile service providers build their 5G networks to scale, OneAdvisor-800 now provides comprehensive capabilities for cell site deployment, including fiber inspection and characterization, cable and antenna analysis, and O-RAN radio verification.

Service providers and equipment manufacturers worldwide are adopting open radio access networks to reduce infrastructure costs and lower the barrier to entry for new product innovation. In line with these benefits, O-RAN also enables carriers to thoroughly validate the tower installation very early in the process, thereby reducing installation problems and accelerating deployments. As a leader in O-RAN specifications development, wireless lab validation platforms, and field workforce solutions, VIAVI has addressed these requirements by augmenting the OneAdvisor-800 cell site tool.

OneAdvisor-800 is a single, modular instrument proven to help cell site technicians test fiber, radio frequency (RF), and Common Public Radio Interface (CPRI), eliminating the need for multiple independent tools. The addition of the Open Distributed Unit (O-DU) Emulation application further streamlines site verification and guards against future truck rolls by enabling functional testing of the Open Radio Unit (O-RU) upon installation, rather than waiting until the O-DU is in place. The technician's work is simplified by guided workflows, with Job Manager programming the service provider's test criteria, and automatically uploading results to the StrataSync cloud.

"As our customers deploy 5G at scale, the OneAdvisor-800 is helping them cut time to market and total cost of deployment thanks to a comprehensive feature set and test process automation," said Kevin Oliver, Vice President and General Manager, Converged Instruments and Virtual Test, VIAVI. "We developed the OneAdvisor-800 with a modular design as an essential means of future-proofing it, and the introduction of O-RAN radio verification is a clear demonstration of that promise to deliver support throughout the entire network lifecycle."
