O-RAN RAN Intelligent Controller (RIC) specs enable self-organizing networks to be deployed as microservices within K8s clusters with RAN AI capabilities. Instantiating key network functionalities in RAN AI applications (xApps & rApps) as K8s pods have arisen the need for customizing Kubernetes architecture to address resiliency, manageability and policy driven requirements for the O-RAN RIC. This talk addresses some of cloud-native considerations of O-RAN to efficiently enable RIC with RAN AI xApps and have the ability to interact with customized set of MEC microservices. Through a live demo using AI based Traffic Management xApp, telemetry based xApp manager & open-source RIC implementation, this talk provides architectural aspects necessary for integrating AI applications, interfaces required for scaling the data efficiently using K8s infrastructure. Importance of telemetry constructs are highlighted to adhere to the real-time requirements of the ORAN near-Realtime RIC pods through the demo.
