NVIDIA Aerial Research Cloud
Aerial Research Cloud product page text:The Aerial Research Cloud is a fully featured platform targeted for next generation wireless, easing developer onboarding and algorithm development in real time networks. The Aerial Research Cloud equips developers, researchers, operators, and network equipment providers with all the components necessary to deploy a campus network for research with the following:
- A 3GPP Release 15 compliant and Over-The-Air (OTA) operational O-RAN 7.2 split campus 5G SA 4T4R wireless stack, with all the network elements from Radio Access Network and 5G Core. Aerial SDK Layer 1 (https://developer.nvidia.com/aerial-sdk) is integrated with the Open Air Alliance (OAI) (https://openairinterface.org/) Distributed Unit (DU), Centralized Unit (CU), and a 5G NR gNB and 5G Core Node(CN) network elements.
- A blueprint to ease onboarding, staging, and integrating the Advanced 5G network components and verification steps through bi-directional UDP traffic. Along with the comprehensive Bill of Materials (BOM), a step-by-step staging and setup recipe, tutorials, and troubleshooting tips are provided to configure all the network components for a quick turnaround live network.
- Complete access to source code in C/C++ is available from Layer 1 through 5GC to jump start customization and NG algorithm research.
