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 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.

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 Mellanox® 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.

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 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.

NVIDIA’s EGX ecosystem includes more than 100 technology companies worldwide, from startups to established software vendors, cloud service providers, and global server and device manufacturers.

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.
