  • Hi, I'm Sujata from Intel.

  • In this video, we talk about the unique challenges

  • 5G poses on the network infrastructure

  • and how SDN, software-defined networking,

  • and NFV, network function virtualization,

  • can help meet these requirements on common off the shelf

  • servers.

  • Beyond being the next generation of wireless networks,

  • 5G is also an innovation technology

  • for services, applications, and billions of connected devices.

  • The [? weighted ?] applications and technologies

  • that 5G supports demands a flexible and agile network

  • in addition to being fast and latency-sensitive.

  • Today, the network is composed of purpose-built infrastructure

  • for functions like routing, virtual private networking,

  • or VPN, load balancing, and firewall.

  • With NFV and SDN, instead of running

  • these as separate instances on three different pieces

  • of hardware, you can run all three

  • on the same infrastructure as virtual machines or containers.

  • This gives an infrastructure or application developer

  • the capability to manage the entire network

  • with a single pane of glass.

  • Intel Virtualized 5G end-to-end infrastructure

  • is comprised of a host of hardware infrastructure

  • from modems, CPUs, NICs, FPGAs, and software components

  • such as flexRAN, RefPHY, and MEC.

  • FlexRAN is a reference software to run

  • virtualized layer 1, layer 2, or layer 3 functionalities

  • on Intel architecture.

  • This solution provides a key standard feature

  • for RAN control plane and data plane software,

  • such as uplink/downlink data transmission, different antenna

  • combinations, and number of cells or core flexibility.

  • So it is easier for vendors to use

  • this in their commercialized product.

  • Another major breakthrough has been

  • in deploying applications at the edge using multi-access edge

  • computing.

  • The objective is to create a standardized open environment

  • to deploy applications close to the network edge.

  • Intel has developed NEV-SDK, a set of libraries

  • to help developers build MEC applications.

  • Intel's modems are designed to meet the physical requirement

  • of 5G, for example, millimeter wave support, high bandwidth,

  • and lower latency.

  • Intel's software offerings are optimized and designed

  • to be flexible and dynamic to meet the needs of applications

  • like network slicing.

  • Network slicing allows developers

  • to implement multiple network instances

  • with varying sets of SLAs, or service-level agreements,

  • on the same network.

  • 5G is driven by many different use cases, like smart cities,

  • automated driving, and AR/VR.

  • Yet, the reality is roughly 4 billion people still

  • do not have access to network services.

  • Cheap backward compatibility to legacy technologies dating back

  • to 2G is the only way to close this gap.

  • The OpenCellular project, founded by Facebook,

  • and the Telecom Infra Project are

  • working to build an active open-source community

  • around cellular access technology to achieve this.

  • Intel is working with the 5G community

  • to come up with optimized hardware and software solutions

  • to reduce time and cost of development.

  • To learn more and to get involved

  • with these technologies, follow the links provided to join.

  • Don't forget to like and subscribe to the Intel Software

  • YouTube channel.

  • Thanks for watching.
