qp-driver Overview

QP Driver is an Xapp in the traffic steering O-RAN use case. There are four total Xapps:

  1. Traffic steering, which sends “prediction requests” to QP Driver (this)
  2. QP Driver (this) which fetches data from SDL[4] on behalf of traffic steering, both UE Data and Cell Data, merges that data together, then sends off the data to the QP Predictor
  3. QP Predictor which predicts (?) and sends that prediction back to Traffic Steering
  4. the fourth Xapp is called KPIMONN which populates SDL in the first place

So in summary, the QP Driver xapp is a helper function that sits between Traffic Steering and QP Predictor.
