Powering on your ORS

Please read this tutorial before powering on your ORS, it is very important to plug it in the right order:

If you wish to control it locally, there are multiple options:

Default services on your ORS

Your ORS is initially configured with 5 different services:

  • orsXXX-enb / orsXXX-gnb: eNB (4G) and gNB (5G), only one of these should be running at a time
  • orsXXX-core-network: local core network (also called EPC, AMF or MME)
  • orsXXX-health: this services checks the computer health (CPU, memory, internet connection etc...), we also use it to monitor all the ORS on the panel so we strongly recommend you to leave it running
