OpenAirInterface ePC GENI Site Deployment

GENI OpenAirInterface Evolved Packet Core (ePC) software deployment is captured in this page. Reference OAI pages:

The GENI ePC installation will use these major component in the OAI ePC:

  • Mobility Management Entity (MME)
  • Home Subscriber Server (HSS)
  • Serving and PDN Gateway (SPGW=S+P-GW)

Prerequisites

The OpenAirInterface(OAI) software must run on a dedicated bare metal node for ExoGENI or Raw-pc for InstaGENI sites.

The OAI ePC requires a Radio Access Network (RAN) Low-latency kernel installation, which is available for Ubuntu 14.04 for the master branch. The master branch version/Ubuntu 14.04 is used for the GENI installations.

Get GENI Resource

Reserve a dedicate raw pc for use as the ePC hosts. Use the following RSpecs:

  • [Attach InstaGENI Gen7/8/9 Ubuntu14 raw pc request Rspec]
  • [Attach ExoGENI bare metal node request RSpec]

Request the appropriate device for you site (IG, EG).

Installing the RAN Kernel

Login to the Dedicated Host and execute the following:

  1. Installing the RAN Kernel:
    git clone https://gitlab.eurecom.fr/oai/linux-4.7.x.git
    cd linux-4.7.x
    sudo dpkg -i linux-headers-4.7.7-oaiepc_4.7.7-oaiepc-10.00.Custom_amd64.deb linux-image-4.7.7-oaiepc_4.7.7-oaiepc-10.00.Custom_amd64.deb
