Open AI Cellular (OAIC)

Open AI Cellular (OAIC) is an NSF CISE research infrastructure project that  brings together investigators from NextG Wireless Lab@Mason, Mississippi State University (MSU), and Wireless@Virginia Tech (VT) to develop a software infrastructure that spurs research and development on artificial intelligence (AI)-enabled cellular radio networks. OAIC provides a fully open-source infrastructure platform that provides software architecture, library and toolset that encompass both the AI controllers (OAIC-C) as well as an AI testing framework (OAIC-T) for enabling 6G Radio Access Networks.

This OAIC research infrastructure:
