Increasing Agility with Virtual RAN

The growth of machine-to-machine data will spur a massive boom in data traffic, requiring network resources to be under smart control. NVIDIA Aerial SDK enables a flexible and dynamic virtual radio access network (vRAN) environment by separating network functions from the underlying hardware. This simplifies the deployment of new features and algorithms and streamlines resource usage.

Telecom and computing are converging, enabling new types of applications we haven’t yet imagined. NVIDIA’s high performance computing platform allows new services to share the same computing fabric as the 5G RAN. Telcos can maximize their network investment and bring new services widely to the market.

Manufacturing Efficiency

Accelerated edge computing and AI is transforming manufacturing into a safer, more efficient industry. BMW is putting inspection cameras on the factory floor, providing a 360-degree view of their assembly line. This creates real-time insights and a safer, more streamlined manufacturing process. Procter & Gamble is leveraging faster edge computing to assist employees during inspections. By analyzing thousands of hours of footage from inspection lines, the company can immediately flag imperfections, improving quality control and helping them to meet the highest safety standards. Warehouse productivity, efficiency, and accuracy of orders can also be improved, by deploying GPU-accelerated AI at the edge—in the warehouse itself.
