White Paper

The Status of Open Source for 5G

This 5G Americas white paper provides an overview of 5G architecture, with a focus on its application of open source principles, based on 3GPP Release 15-defined 5G system architecture. This paper is intended to serve as a call to action for the 5G community of operators, solution providers and developers, to participate in the existing open source efforts applicable to 5G, or initiate new ones, in areas such as ‘Infrastructure’ and ‘Management and Control’ where the 5G ecosystem will likely benefit the most. Community involvement is important to help achieve critical backing of the projects to avoid one-off solutions. The Status of Open Source for 5G white paper was written by co-leaders Lyle Bertz from Sprint and Bejoy Pankajakshan of Mavenir as well as representatives from member companies on 5G Americas’ Board of Governors who participated in the development of this report.
