Viavi Solutions verify field deployment of O-RAN radios

Viavi Solutions announced that the OneAdvisor-800 all-in-one cell site tool can be upgraded with the O-DU Emulation application to verify field deployment of O-RAN radios.
Viavi Solutions for 5GOneAdvisor-800 provides comprehensive capabilities for cell site deployment, including fiber inspection and characterization, cable and antenna analysis, and O-RAN radio verification.

O-RAN enables carriers to validate the tower installation very early in the process, reducing installation problems and accelerating deployments.

OneAdvisor-800 is a modular instrument to help cell site technicians test fiber, radio frequency (RF), and Common Public Radio Interface (CPRI), eliminating the need for multiple independent tools.

The addition of the Open Distributed Unit (O-DU) Emulation application streamlines site verification and guards against future truck rolls by enabling functional testing of the Open Radio Unit (O-RU) upon installation.

“As our customers deploy 5G at scale, the OneAdvisor-800 is helping them cut time to market and total cost of deployment thanks to a comprehensive feature set and test process automation,” said Kevin Oliver, Vice President and General Manager, Converged Instruments and Virtual Test, VIAVI.
