NOMS 2020, 2020 IEEE/IFIP Network Operations and Management Symposium, 20-24 April 2020, Budapest, Hungary (Virtual Conference)

In this demo, we present 5G network automation in cloud-native environment. Our proposition is to demonstrate the network automation using Kubernets as container orchestration and automating application deployment, while using Openshift Operator as a tool to manage complex services, such as 5G services. For this purpose, we use the containerized OpenAirInterface (OAI) to deploy the network and demonstrate the automatability, such as dynamic switch of RAN between monolithic base station and disaggregated RAN (i.e. Distributed Unit-DU and Centralized Unit-CU), and auto-configuration.
