Test scenarios introduction

  • S-Plane test scenario

O-DU using ITU-T G.8275.1 profile
(LLS-C3) functional test

The purpose of this test is to validate that Wiwynn/Radisys O-DU/O-CU is correctly synchronized to a timing reference delivering PTP using the ITU-T G.8275.1 profile, and that the O-DU correctly collects the status based on the nominal synchronization conditions.

Testing Results/Summary

In this test, Wiwynn/Radisys O-DU/O-CU is running as Slave Clock. A PTP Master Clock device connects to Wiwynn/Radisys O-DU/O-CU and generates the stimulus for the O-DU (DUT) and retrieve its sync status.

Based on the .pcap tracing, the source clock MAC address in the O-DU is the same one of the PTP Master Clock; and the same clock-class is used in the O-DU as that send from the PTP Master Clock.

Benefits for the Industry

  • The validated LLS-C3 synchronization via the ITU-T G.8275.1 profile
    in Wiwynn/Radisys O-DU/O-CU solution.
  • Jumbo frame U-plane packets settings of Wiwynn/Radisys O-DU
    and the VIAVI O-RU emulator aligned in advance.
  • between the VIAVI O-RU emulator and Wiwynn/Radisys O-DU.
