Intel unveils 4th Gen Xeon Scalable processors at Mobile World Congress 2023
Mobile World Congress 2023: The chip manufacturer Intel presented the scalable Xeon processors at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 4 ) 2023 in Barcelona.
Developed in partnership with SK Telecom, Intel announced the Intel Infrastructure Power Manager for 5G Core reference software, which offers an average of 30 percent CPU power savings during runtime3. Intel announced a breakthrough performance by demonstrating industry-first UPF workload performance of 1 terabit per second4 (Tbps) 5G User Plane Function (UPF) on 4th Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors.
vRAN is here and almost all deployments are running on Intel
The need for high-performance, scalable, flexible, and energy-efficient systems is driving the transformation of mobile networks from fixed-function, hardware-based semiconductors and infrastructure to software-based, fully virtualized platforms running on general-purpose processors. Accelerated virtualization of the RAN enables Communications Service Providers (CoSPs) to meet future demands while improving RAN energy efficiency and lowering their total cost of ownership (TCO).
5G core networks run on software and offer cloud-native agility
At the core of the network, Intel is leading the move toward cloud-native, service-based architectures with open solutions to address challenges such as performance, total cost of ownership, energy efficiency, security, and lack of visibility across the network stack. Intel’s hardware and software solutions will enable 5G core networks to work harder and smarter to balance critical business and customer demands for power efficiency, performance and latency.
Intel sets the pace at the Edge
Massive growth at the network edge, particularly in video services, will define much of the competitive landscape for service providers this decade. Operators’ network edge facilities are positioning them for a competitive advantage to accommodate this growth, but it’s difficult to predict which specific video services will take off. Along with partners Broadpeak, China Mobile, Cloudsky, Thundersoft and ZTE, Intel presented the Intel Converged Edge Media Platform, which delivers multiple video services from a shared, multi-tenant architecture and leverages cloud-native scalability to intelligently respond to changing demands.
Providing customer choice in acceleration
In addition to the integrated network acceleration built into 4th Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors, Intel extends its Agilex 7 FPGAs and ASIC devices with eASIC N5X fabric for cloud, communications and embedded applications. As Cloud Service Providers (CSPs) begin transitioning from 200G to 400G networks in 2023, and CoSPs will follow in 2024, Intel Agilex 7 FPGA AGI 041 devices will enable next-generation 400G infrastructure acceleration solutions. AGI 041 devices provide the right balance of capacity, power efficiency and performance for 400G infrastructure processing unit (IPU) and networking solutions.
