Massive MIMO O-RAN Radio Units (O-RU): Design & Conformance Test Challenges
This joint presentation provides an overview of the design and conformance test challenges of massive MIMO and beamforming-capable O-RAN Radio Units, based on the collaborative R&D efforts and learnings from the recent O-RAN plugfests.
Radio units are part of disaggregated 5G NR gNBs, we will review emerging O-RAN and 3GPP conformance test requirements and challenges from a CUSM-plane (Control, User, Synchronization, Management) point of view, and the implications on next generation test methodologies.
- Design considerations applicable to testing massive MIMO radios with beamforming capabilities
- 3GPP and O-RAN requirements for conformance testing
- Define test methodology and setup for measurement and validation of features (KPIs)
Dr. Jens Bartelt
Senior Staff System Design Engineer
Jens Bartelt received his M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering from Technische Universität Dresden, Germany, in 2012 and 2017, respectively. From 2013 to 2017, he was a research associate at Vodafone Chair Mobile Communication Systems at TU Dresden. Since 2018, he has been working as system architect developing massive MIMO radio units, first at Airrays GmbH and later at Xilinx. He has also been part of several international research projects and participates in O-RAN Working Group 4 standardization.
