Intel has announced an extension of its 5G offer in terms of hardware, software and solutions for network infrastructure.
Updates include improvements to FlexRAN’s reference software architecture, the Intel dedicated virtualized radio access network accelerator, the Intel Xeon Scalable and D processors of the next generation, and the Intel Select Solutions updated for NFVI.
FlexRAN: Intel’s software reference architecture has grown to almost 100 licensees and added improvements, including optimizations to its massive multi-input mid-band pipeline (MIMO) for increased bandwidth and support for low communication
Intel vRAN Accelerator Dedicated Accelerator ACC100: The low-consumption and low-cost acceleration solution for vRAN distributions is based on Intel eATIC technology. It allows you to significantly accelerate the error correction process; this releases greater processing power within Intel Xeon processors for channel capacity and edge-based services and applications.
New generation Intel Xeon processors for network infrastructure: with these processors, customers can use a common architecture across the network for various workloads and performance requirements.
The third generation Intel Xeon Scalable processors optimized for the network (codenamed “Ice Lake-SP”) are designed for the use of infrastructure requiring higher performance per watt, including workloads and loads of
The new generation Intel Xeon D processors (codenamed Intel plans to start shipping these processors to customers in mid 2021.
Intel Select improved network solutions: to improve application efficiency and network performance for high-performance network workloads, Intel Select solutions for NFVI Red Hat, NFVI Ubuntu and NF These updated solutions are coming soon.
