Radio Access Network (RAN) will be centralized and virtualized into server-based
Centralized Units (CUs)
The dramatic improvement in broadband speed and reduction of latency in 5G networks,
enhanced by Edge
computing, will change the way we get around, create, work, play, stay healthy, and interact
5G networks are designed to leverage virtualization and containers on open hardware
platforms – reducing
dependence on legacy proprietary hardware. Supermicro brings proven expertise in optimized
and deep virtualization experience to these growing 5G deployments.
The Radio Access Network (RAN) will be centralized and virtualized into server-based
and Distributed Units (DUs), slimming down fixed-function hardware into Remote Radio Units
Intelligent Edge servers will support real-time applications with computing and AI
inferencing. And 4G
Evolved Packet Core (EPC) functions will be replaced by 5G Core components running as
functions (VNFs) in data centers and the cloud.
