In this offer, ORCA present a framework to run multiple RATs concurrently on a single SDR platform with wideband RF frontend. Signals from each RAT are combined or split in digital domain, hence running concurrently on the same radio.

This offer focuses on the lower layers such as PHY, PHY control or lower MAC. Since these layers are very close to the analogue RF front-end and must meet tough timing requirements for fast responses, flexibility and customization. The runtime parametrization triggered through a dedicated MAC processor TAISC running on the SDR onboard processor, ensuring time agnostic and real time control of lower level parameters.

Instead of deploying a specific MAC for every PHY, this offer runs the lower MAC, namely the TAISC core, on top of every PHY. The TAISC core is a middle layer located at the very lower end of the MAC layer and implements a set of lower MAC primitives that needs to be executed in a certain order. TAISC can prioritize, switch between MAC protocols, and provides generic data and low latency control plane interfaces.

The FPGA transceiver implementation allows to use any current waveform for real-time and low-latency communications, such as SC-FDE, OFDM, GFDM, FBMC, 5G-NR, Spread Spectrum (including CDMA) and chirp based schemes. The transceiver will include lower MAC-functionality to support unlicensed bands operation. A unique programming system will allow to adjust the FPGA functions in real-time using UDP commands to switch the waveform depending on the context without additional latencies.

The developed repository allows experimenters to generate RF signal datasets that are appropriate to their experiments or use cases. The framework will generate the RF signal samples and associated metadata/labels. The resulting dataset can be used to train different sets of machine learning models for RF signal classification.

This offers gives experimenters the possibiltiy to access a small network of 4 USRPs with full duplex capabilities. The current implemenation consists of a front-end for analysis self-interference cancellation, and a PHY for Tx, Rx (not at the same time) and collsion detection while transmitting. On top of this PHY, a MAC CSMA and FD-CSMA MAC protocol is implemented.
