Tietoevry Create supports ONF and RimedoLabs to demonstrate SMaRT-5G™ Open-Source Energy Savings Platform
ONF (Open Networking Foundation) recently demonstrated its SMaRT-5G™ Open-Source Energy Savings Platform at FYUZ, combining energy-saving and traffic-steering capabilities in a unified open-source solution. This achievement aligns with the O-RAN architectural framework and utilizes the ONF's SD-RAN platform, demonstrating O-RAN compliant open-source platforms. The demonstration involves the integration of Energy Saving rApp (ES-rApp) and Traffic Steering xApp (TS-xApp) applications developed by Rimedo Labs, along with the Near-RealTime RIC, RAN Simulator (RANSim), and Service Management Orchestration (SMO). Tietoevry provided system integration services.
In the demonstration, ES-rApp monitors network load and proactively determines whether underutilized cells can be powered off to optimize energy consumption. TS-xApp seamlessly redirects traffic to other cells, ensuring no impact on end-user experience. Once load conditions change, cells can be reactivated as needed. This effort addresses mobile network energy consumption, a crucial industry concern.
The SMaRT-5G™ project aims to develop, demonstrate, and open-source intelligent energy-saving solutions for mobile networks, with initial collaborators including Aira Technologies, AirHop Communications, Intel, Rimedo Labs, Tietoevry, Telecom Infra Project (TIP), Rutgers WINLAB, and more organizations are encouraged to join.
