AI-Powered Telcos

Network operations are becoming increasingly complex and vast amounts of valuable data is being generated. By leveraging AI to extract timely, actionable insights telcos can optimize network operations, improve customer experiences, and unlock new revenue streams.

T-Mobile deployed a conversational AI-based chatbot, a self-service center, agent-assist functionality, and transcription services in their customer experience centers. Conversations between customers and agents are now transcribed to text—live—to better assist customer experience center agents. According to T-Mobile, in the first 18 months they realized a significant return on their investment.

Accelerating Edge AI over 5G

NVIDIA AI-on-5G is a unified platform that brings together developments in AI and 5G at the edge to accelerate the digital transformation of enterprises across all industries. 5G provides the underlying connectivity for billions of devices, extending the reach of AI algorithms and applications to all connected objects at the edge and enabling new use cases and new markets.

Enterprises, telecoms operators, and CSPs that deploy AI-on-5G will be able to handle both 5G and edge AI computing in a single, converged platform. This creates high-performance 5G RAN and AI applications to manage precision manufacturing robots, automated guided vehicles, drones, wireless cameras, self-checkout aisles, and hundreds of other transformational projects.

Intelligent Services at the Edge

Localizing compute processes close to end users improves network transit latency, data storage, and processing, which drives the performance of intelligent applications. With the NVIDIA EGX™ edge computing platform, enterprises can securely deploy and manage AI workloads where real-time answers and decisions are happening, on the cloud or in the data center.

What is clear is that 5G is set to shift operators’ service models away from monthly voice, data, and messaging bundles and towards higher value services that are tuned for specific customer requirements—and that it will increasingly make use of edge computing.

Accelerating Content, Services, and Application Delivery

NVIDIA networking telco solutions provide intelligent offloads and accelerators, driving maximum efficiency for 5G infrastructure network services applications, and maintain adherence to stringent RAN timing specifications.

Efficient Virtual Switching

NVIDIA Accelerated Switch and Packet Processing (ASAP2) offloads the virtual switch data plane to the SmartNIC or DPU, freeing precious CPU resources. Combining the performance and efficiency of server/storage networking hardware with the flexibility of virtual switching software provides software-defined networks with the highest total infrastructure efficiency, deployment flexibility, and operational simplicity.

Faster Packet Processing

Data Plane Development Kit or DPDK is a programming framework that provides faster packet processing and delivers increased performance and efficiency for applications requiring high-speed networking access. NVIDIA provides for an I/O packet performance breakthrough that eliminates the performance barrier associated with deploying Network Function Virtualization (NFV) solutions in both service provider networks and enterprise cloud deployments.

Network Traffic Synchronization

NVIDIA time-triggered transmission technology for telco, referred to as 5T for 5G technology, provides time synchronization to achieve timing accuracy for network traffic and is a real-time, high-performance solution for building an efficient, time-synchronized CloudRAN infrastructure.

  • 5G Killer App: Making Augmented and Virtual Reality a Reality

    • Brain Mecum, Vice President, Device Technology, Verizon
    • Bill Vass, Vice President, Technology, AWS
    • Peter Linder, Head of 5G Marketing, North America, Ericsson

    Extended reality (XR) is consistently envisioned as one of the key killer apps for 5G, as XR requires ultra-low latency and large bandwidths to deliver wired-equivalent experiences for users. Verizon, AWS, and Ericsson will share how they’re collaborating to build the infrastructure for commercial XR services across a variety of industries.

  • Using AI Infrastructure in the Cloud for 5G vRAN

    • Christopher Lamb, Vice President, GPU Computing Platforms, NVIDIA

    The cellular industry spends over $90 billion annually on the radio access network (RAN), using dedicated hardware to provide capacity for peak demand. This often leads to persistent overprovisioning in many RAN sites, as only 10 percent of sites carry 50–60 percent of overall network load. Join us to learn about a game-changing approach that turns this underutilization into an opportunity—leveraging the same cloud and data centers used for AI to dynamically load share with 5G virtual RAN (vRAN).
