RIC-O: An Orchestrator for the Dynamic Placement of a Disaggregated RAN Intelligent Controller

CCI researchers present the RIC Orchestrator (RIC-O), a system that optimizes the deployment of Near Real-time RAN Intelligent Controller (Near-RT RIC) components across cloud and edge computing nodes. 

RIC-O quickly and efficiently adapts to sudden changes and redeploys components as needed. 

CCI researchers describe small-scale real-world experiments using RIC-O and a disaggregated Near-RT RIC within a Kubernetes deployment to demonstrate its effectiveness.
