SynaXG and Key Partners Drive O-RAN Advancements at Global PlugFest Spring 2024

The O-RAN ALLIANCE recently wrapped up its annual Global PlugFest Spring 2024, where 86 participating companies and institutions, including SynaXG, showcased groundbreaking innovations in O-RAN technology. Co-hosted by 20 operators, open testing and integration centers (OTICs), and academic and research institutions, the spring PlugFest was held from February to May 2024 across 18 labs in Asia, Europe, and North America. This year’s PlugFest focused on five pivotal themes to enhance global efforts in O-RAN testing and integration, speed up the technology development cycle and accelerate the adoption of O-RAN technologies.

A pioneer in O-RAN infrastructure and AI-enhanced wireless technologies, SynaXG played a significant role in the advancements unveiled during the eighth annual O-RAN ALLIANCE PlugFest. Dedicated to empowering global connectivity for enterprises, telecom operators, and cloud service providers, SynaXG stands out as a leading emerging O-RAN infrastructure provider, merging artificial intelligence (AI) with 5G and beyond to enhance network performance and efficiency.

Dedicated to advancing the future of Open Radio Access Network (O-RAN) architectures, SynaXG and other leading participants, including Keysight Technologies and Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD), achieved the following results in these focus areas at PlugFest Spring 2024.

Open Fronthaul Conformance Testing

Building on previous fronthaul conformance testing initiatives, the Spring 2024 PlugFest extended the number of multi-vendor interoperable configurations. Leveraging contributions from SynaXG and other participants, these successful O-RAN compliant fronthaul interface testing efforts broaden the range of O-RAN solutions available to mobile operators.

System Testing with Layer 1 Acceleration

The PlugFest verified the market readiness to automatically deploy and configure Layer 1 (L1) accelerators. This L1 verification enables efficient testing across various O-RAN configurations, highlighting SynaXG’s expertise in carrier-grade L1 software and systems integration. SynaXG is among the few companies in the industry providing carrier-grade Layer 1 (L1) PHY software proven in large-scale deployments.

Demonstration of an Integrated O-DU/CU

During the PlugFest, SynaXG demonstrated an integrated O-RAN distributed unit and centralized unit (O-DU/CU) solution that enables both 4G and 5G connectivity. Designed for today’s energy-conscious market, SynaXG’s low-power O-DU/CU provides an energy-efficient, high-capacity and high-density network solution.

Driving the O-RAN Ecosystem Forward

The O-RAN ALLIANCE Global PlugFest Spring 2024 showcased significant advancements in O-RAN technologies, with SynaXG at the forefront of these test achievements. By participating in testing, integration and deployment efforts, SynaXG and its partners are driving the future of O-RAN, ensuring a smarter, more connected world and enabling an open, intelligent, virtualized and fully interoperable RAN.


The O-RAN ALLIANCE is a world-wide community of more than 300 mobile operators, vendors, and research & academic institutions operating in the Radio Access Network (RAN) industry. As the RAN is an essential part of any mobile network, the O-RAN ALLIANCE’s mission is to re-shape the industry towards more intelligent, open, virtualized and fully interoperable mobile networks. The new O-RAN specifications enable a more competitive and vibrant RAN supplier ecosystem with faster innovation to improve user experience. O-RAN based mobile networks at the same time improve the efficiency of RAN deployments as well as operations by mobile operators. To achieve this, the O-RAN ALLIANCE publishes new RAN specifications, releases open software for the RAN, and supports its members in integration and testing of their implementations.
