An ORCA demo and a paper were showed at the ns-3 workshop in June 13-14, 2017 in Porto, Portugal.

The demo system combines an open-source LTE stack including core network using network simulator ns-3, with an FPGA-based real-time implementation of LTE Layer 1 using the NI LTE Application Framework. This setup will be the baseline for research on coordination strategies between multiple RATs (e.g. LTE/802.11/5G-NR) in ORCA.
