With Tietoevry O-RU M-Plane Tester you can accelerate your O-RU product development and verify that the M-Plane interface behaves according to the O-RAN standards in a fast and cost-effective manner.
Making the new Open RAN work demands stringent testing requirements. In Open RAN, the Open Radio Unit (O-RU) management functions handled by the M-Plane are extensive and the O-RU compliance with the O-RAN specifications needs to be secured for a successful integration in the RAN. As an example of the complexity, the YANG models that help manage the O-RU features more than 6,000 parameters, with less than 3% of them mandatory.
The Tietoevry O-RU M-Plane Tester is built to tackle these challenges with its capability to construct test scenarios in an easy and flexible way using built-in standard procedures and user-friendly test case constructor.

Using the O-RU M-Plane Tester for testing of the O-RU instead of a real O-DU or NMS provides a much more cost-effective way to verify that the O-RU conforms according to standardization
Significantly improved quality by using the O-RU M-Plane Tester for conformance testing. An O-RU must conform to the Open RAN standardization to allow smooth integration in any Open RAN infrastructure
The O-RU M-Plane Tester can be used in a very early stage of O-RU development. This provides the ability to verify O-RU SW functionality and quality even before any O-RU HW is available
The M-Plane Tester and built-in test procedures adheres to O-RAN Alliance Fronthaul Interoperability Test Specification (IOT) and M-Plane Specification.
The M-Plane Tester can be connected to any O-RU using NETCONF protocol through the IP network. The solution provides an easy switch between different O-RU realizations.
Early O-RU functional and regression testing can be done in a simulated environment before it is ported to O-RU HW.
The M-Plane Tester contains built-in specification-based test procedures. Any O-RU can be tested as a black box with no dependency on supplier.
The M-Plane Tester solution offers an easy entry point to construct your own test scenarios in a flexible way.
Comprehensive log analysis in the M-Plane Tester is supported by using file export or web-based GUI.
The M-Plane Tester is ready for easy integration to any CI/CD pipeline, thereby enabling test automation.
The M-Plane Tester is fully cloud-native and is built on microservice architecture.
