LASTING Software Joins the OpenAirInterface Software Alliance as an Associate Member to Propel Satellite and Terrestrial Telecommunications Integration

LASTING Software, a leader in the integration of terrestrial and satellite telecommunications, is proud to announce its new associate membership in the OpenAirInterface Software Alliance (OSA). This membership represents a significant advancement in the company's commitment to reshaping the telecommunications landscape through innovative technologies.

The OpenAirInterface Software Alliance, established from collaborative research between academic and industrial institutions led by EURECOM, focuses on facilitating the adoption of the OpenAirInterface (OAI) software. As a game-changer in the telecoms industry, OAI serves as a research, testing, validation and fast prototyping platform.

This strategic alignment marks a significant step towards advancing the telecommunications landscape by fostering the development of cutting-edge Radio Access Network (RAN) and Core Network (CN) technologies.

As an OSA member, LASTING Software will engage actively in supporting the development, validation and promotion of the 5G NTN OAI branch. "Joining the OSA as an associate member is a strategic move for LASTING Software. It allows us to leverage a global network of innovation and expertise, ensuring our satellite channel emulator and direct-to-device test bed solutions remain at the forefront of the telecommunications industry," said Dan Zirmer, Managing Partner of LASTING Software. "This partnership amplifies our capabilities to address the complex needs of 5G NTN and satellite communications, enhancing our offerings and enabling us to deliver quality integrated telecommunications solutions."

“This is a fantastic community effort! We are indebted to the OAI community leaders like Fraunhofer IIS and Allbesmart LDA for their NTN contributions to the OAI codebase. LASTING Software has also added tremendous value in the shape of channel emulation expertise. Lastly, the European Space Agency (ESA) leadership itself has stepped forward to shepherd the community into meticulously merging NTN code into the OAI codebase. As LASTING Software joins the OSA, we are looking forward to a vibrant community-led NTN workgroup taking root in OAI and taking us to implementations of further 3GPP releases”, adds Irfan Ghauri, Director of Operations, OpenAirInterface Software Alliance.

The collaboration with OSA is expected to enhance LASTING Software’s product and service portfolio by incorporating the latest innovations showcased at leading industry events like the Mobile World Congress. It will also strengthen the company’s ability to engage in thought leadership and explore new business avenues within the expansive OAI community.
