PAWR launches new lab for open-source 5G SA software

June 4, 2021


The Platforms for Advanced Wireless Research (PAWR) Project Office is moving to support development and testing of an open-source Standalone 5G software stack from the OpenAirInterface (OAI) Software Alliance, with the launch of OpenAirX-Labs (OAX).

The lab launch under PAWR gives a U.S.-based home to work from OAI, which has had its home in Europe, and expands the potential ecosystem of companies and partners.

OAX will be located at the Institute for the Wireless Internet of Things at Northeastern University in Boston, and PAWR says it will mirror a similar OpenAirInterface test location at Eurecom in France, which has a cloud-based Continuous Integration and Development (CI/CD) suite and provides a neutral, remotely accessible lab environment.
