At Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2023 in Barcelona, popular chipmaker Intel has launched its 4th generation Intel Xeon Scalable processors with Intel vRAN Boost. The company also announced the Intel Infrastructure Power Manager for 5G core reference software, which delivers average runtime savings of 30 percent on CPU power.
According to the brand, Intel vRAN Boost delivers double the capacity gain and up to 20 percent additional power savings with integrated acceleration, meeting critical performance, scaling and energy efficiency requirements.
Intel also showcased the Intel Converged Edge Media Platform, which delivers multiple video services from a shared, multitenant architecture and leverages cloud-native scalability to intelligently respond to changing demands.
“The advancements we’ve made in our 4th Gen Intel Xeon platforms to double vRAN performance while staying within the same power envelope, to nearly double the UPF throughput of the 5G core and to enable the deployment of a wide accelerate a range of network, security and business solutions. edge services, Intel is creating the platform for our customers to modernize and monetize their networks of the future, today,” said Sachin Katti, Intel senior vice president and general manager of the Network and Edge Group.
According to Intel, with the combination of processing innovations and feature integration, Intel expects 4th Gen Xeon Scalable processors with Intel vRAN Boost to match or improve the performance per watt of the best Layer 1 SoC accelerator cards on the market while delivering the benefits of software-defined, virtualized networks.
In addition, the new Intel Infrastructure Power Manager for 5G Core reference software dynamically balances runtime server power consumption with data traffic without compromising key performance metrics such as throughput, latency, and packet loss.
Intel’s hardware and software solutions will enable 5G core networks to work harder and smarter to achieve a balance between critical business and customer requirements for energy efficiency, performance and latency, the company said.
In addition to the integrated network acceleration built into 4th Generation Intel Xeon Scalable processors, Intel is extending its Agilex 7 FPGAs and eASIC N5X fabric ASIC devices for cloud, communications and embedded applications.
