November 7th and 8th, 2017

Orange Gardens 40 – 48 avenue de la République 92320 Chatillon France

A tremendous success thanks to the quality of our speakers and work presented, the 4th OAI Workshop was held in the Parisian region and was hosted by our Strategic Member Orange (a big thanks to our host and Board Member Christian Gallard) at its prestigious location of Orange Gardens. The event showcased some of the projects OSA partners across the globe are involved in and covered all areas ranging from OpenAirInterface for Core Network, RAN and the UE. The event revealed what how indispensable OAI has become over the years to the Telecoms community and highlighted its impact in accelerating and democratizing wireless innovation.

We thank our delegates for the quality of their engagement and look forward to making major adjustments in near future to incorporate valuable feedback the community provided during the workshop.

Stay tuned!

The OAI Team
