After the 5th OAI Workshop in Beijing in June 2018, the OpenAirInterface Software Alliance is pleased to announce that it is bringing the Fall 2019 edition of the bi-annual event back to the Middle Kingdom.

The workshop is being held with the support of China Mobile Research. The focus of the workshop will clearly be new developments in 5G! We have code release plans before the event. The first end to end 5G system based on the OAI stack will be demonstrated at the event. We shall also have special sessions on the O-RAN OSC (O-RAN Software Community) and O-RAN Software Architecture courtesy of our colleagues at China Mobile Research.This will provide the opportunity to investigate collaboration avenues between OpenAirInterface and O-RAN Open Source Community (OSC) work.

We invite the OAI community and those interested in OAI for O-RAN OSC work to take the opportunity of this event to engage with us and show their recent work and future plans.

Kindly submit proposals of talks and demos to using the form here.

For those interested in training, please look hereunder for a tentative training program. Some changes may be expected.
