Welcome to the OpenAirInterface project
is an open-source platform (GNU GPL v3) for experimentation in wireless systems primarily targeting cellular technologies (LTE/LTE-Advanced and beyond) and rapidly-deployable mesh/ad-hoc networks. It has been funded predominantly by collaborative projects under the 6th
EU framework programmes and to a lesser extent by the French ANR programmes. The platform comprises both hardware and software components and can be used for simulation/emulation as well as real-time experimentation on both custom RF equipment and standard equipment from National Instruments/Ettus. It comprises the entire protocol stack from the physical to the networking layer starting from Rel-8 LTE. The current software can interoperate with commercial LTE terminals and can be interconnected with closed-source EPC (Enhanced Packet Core) solutions from third-parties. The objective of this platform is to provide methods for protocol validation, performance evaluation and pre-deployment system test.
OAI is currently hosted and maintained by EURECOM. It will become a foundation (French Association) in the fall of 2014 and will seek funding from members, in the spirit of foundations offering support for open-source software such as OpenStack
, APACHE and ANDROID. The current major industrial users of OAI for collaborative projects are Agilent, China Mobile, IBM, Alcatel-Lucent, Thales, and Orange. One of the main objectives is to provide an open-source reference implementation which follows the 3GPP standardization process starting from Rel-12 and the evolutionary path towards 5G.
