This morning the Nokia and Intel groups announced their collaboration on technological advances in Nokia's 5G radio portfolio. The two companies have indeed collaborated on the new Intel Atom P5900 processor which combines computing, connectivity and acceleration technologies. The jointly developed custom silicon solutions are included in Nokia's Airscale radio access products and shipped worldwide as part of its 5G portfolio. Nokia thus improves the performance of 5G network deployments while reducing its energy footprint.
It is of course in order to further develop its 5G portfolio that Nokia has set up this partnership with Intel with the reinforcement of AirScale and the advancement of the capabilities of its ReefShark chipset. The ReefShark chipset uses modern silicon chip design technologies and manufacturing capabilities, enabling higher data throughput with lower power consumption to support AirScale 5G network solutions.
The two companies will also continue their collaboration by incorporating the latest Intel Xeon processor technology into Nokia's cloud infrastructure to take advantage of the benefits of a common cloud architecture at the edge. Nokia's AirFrame data center for periphery and core also uses the latest Intel Xeon scalable second-generation processor with built-in artificial intelligence acceleration. This processor is also found in AirScale and Nokia 5G all-in-one virtual network solutions to meet the needs of 5G technologies. Nokia's AirScale Cloud RAN virtualizes radio functions to provide lower latency and high bit rates.it provides the flexibility for demanding services and the scalability, agility and operational efficiency to meet demand.
Nokia's President of Mobile Networks said this morning: "This partnership underscores our ongoing commitment to ensuring our 5G portfolio is built on best-in-class technology. 5G networks must support billions of devices and machines, and this massive increase in volume and scale means that existing infrastructure and components must evolve rapidly, adopting technologies and techniques to enable rapid deployment of 5G networks. »
Intel's chief executive officer said: "Implementing technological innovations from the core to the edge of the network is essential to unlock the full potential of 5G. Through our collaboration with Nokia and our broad portfolio of ASIC products and capabilities, we are demonstrating the value that can be realized with a consistent, high-performance architecture across the intelligent 5G network. »
