Intelligent Computing and Open vRAN Drive 5G Infrastructure

Open vRAN commercial momentum advance 5G infrastructure

What is open vran?

Commercial designs and deployments of open and virtualized radio access networks (Open vRAN) are developing, while intelligent computing innovation and AI are becoming more important for 5G infrastructure. Qualcomm Technologies, a communications and AI company, is driving 5G network innovation.

5G Infrastructure

Their 5G RAN portfolio now includes cognitive computing technologies that improve processing, power efficiency, and cost. Qualcomm Technologies makes Arm-compatible CPUs for next-generation Open vRAN servers and affordable 5G small cells. See Viettel, Fujitsu, and Mavenir news to see how they and their clients are advancing Open vRAN.

Smart computing for 5G infrastructure

Qualcomm Infrastructure Processors ushers in a new age of high performance and low TCO for mobile network operators (MNOs) and new entrants. Her new lineup includes vRAN server processors with an emphasis on AI workloads, using CPU, NPU, and GPU expertise, and small cell processors to reduce 5G home and small office, home office (SOHO) costs.

Innovative RAN and AI processing for open and virtualized networks

Open Ran and vRan

By adding Qualcomm Infrastructure Processors for vRAN servers to her portfolio, they can meet current network needs as open and virtualized networks spread and the connected intelligent edge with AI grows. They want to revolutionize AI and RAN workload processing in vRAN servers by using the Qualcomm Oryon CPU, integrated hardware accelerators (leveraging world-class NPU/GPU technology), and their powerful Qualcomm 5G RAN Platforms.

Qualcomm Infrastructure Processors use standard interfaces and are interoperable with accelerator cards from several vendors. As usual with Qualcomm Technologies, their diversified product range and expertise make their technologies better together. As seen above, Qualcomm Infrastructure Processors and their Qualcomm X100 5G RAN Accelerator Card effectively handle Layer 1 and Layer 2 processing for essential RAN and AI workloads. Performance per watt and Open vRAN deployment costs are optimized by this system design.
To optimize and improve contemporary 5G networks, AI is essential from the cloud to the network to the device. Driving AI innovation across these vectors helps operators enhance performance, reduce operational costs, and move toward the autonomous network.

Qualcomm Technologies is a front runner in providing end-to-end AI knowledge to operators

Who better to apply AI’s numerous advantages to contemporary telecoms networks’ cornerstone, vRAN servers? Ecosystem partners are testing open vRAN solutions using Qualcomm Infrastructure Processors.

5G tiny cell innovation with Qualcomm Infrastructure Processors

First, Qualcomm FSM100 5G RAN platform for small cells, now with Qualcomm Infrastructure Processor QIP100 for RAN workload processing, is commercially available. This platform offers the perfect blend of performance, capacity, power, cost, size, and deployment ease for large-scale residential and SOHO 5G deployments using Qualcomm QIP100. MNOs and Qualcomm Technologies‘ infrastructure partners can fill a market gap and upgrade legacy 3G and 4G residential small cells (femtocells) with this optimized platform to meet growing demand for high-speed, low-latency 5G at home and small office.
Promote vRAN sales

Qualcomm 5G RAN technologies, notably Open vRAN platforms, are gaining pace as they expand their 5G infrastructure portfolio. Recently, Viettel deployed 5G Open RAN network equipment utilizing the Qualcomm X100 5G RAN Accelerator Card and Qualcomm QRU100 5G RAN Platform on a live network with actual users and data traffic. Live network results of 1,200 Mbps (100HMz, 4 Layers) demonstrate Open vRAN’s commercial readiness, combining competitive performance with cost and energy efficiency.

After the milestone with Viettel, expect to see additional announcements of strong Massive MIMO (Multiple Input, Multiple Output) radio units from our clients using Qualcomm TechnologiesOpen vRAN platforms at Mobile World Congress Barcelona. Fujitsu motivation open an O-RAN well-matched 64TRX immense MIMO telephone lines Unit powered by means of Qualcomm QRU100 5G RAN proposal.

Expect tales of disaggregated RAN reducing operator TCO with power-efficient, multi-vendor vRAN servers using Qualcomm X100 5G RAN accelerator cards and Qualcomm QDU100 systems.

Mavenir and Qualcomm Technologies will unveil a vDU solution powered by Qualcomm X100 5G RAN Accelerator Card and developed with Mavenir vDU RAN software at MWC-B. This solution reduces mobile operator TCO and improves sustainability with high power efficiency. Mavenir will announce its Open Beam line of high-performing and power-efficient Massive MIMO Radios powered by Qualcomm QRU100 5G RAN Platforms in addition to the vDU solution.

Not just that. Follow these and their other customers and ecosystem stakeholders as they go to the expo. Open vRAN should be a hot subject at MWC and beyond.

Enabling intelligent 5G infrastructure

Qualcomm Technologies‘ inclusion of intelligent computing to its 5G RAN portfolio signals major telecommunications infrastructure advancement. Qualcomm Technologies helps operators enhance network performance, decrease costs, and increase sustainability with AI leadership and strong computation technologies. The introduction of Qualcomm Infrastructure Processors for vRAN servers and small cells and the rapid commercial designs and deployment of Qualcomm 5G RAN platforms for Open vRAN position Qualcomm Technologies to meet operators’ diverse 5G needs.
