Driving the Future of 5G and the Mobile Core Network

Learn more about how Intel and other industry leaders are collaborating and driving 5G acceleration. A recent blog from Alexander Quach “5G Accelerates Mobile Core Network Innovation” explains Intel’s leadership role that is driving both the modernization and rapid deployment of 5G Stand Alone (SA) core networks that will occur over the next several years. A joint whitepaper with SK Telecom “Low Latency on 5G UPF URLLC” summarizes the joint collaboration where results demonstrated that low latency and jitter can be achieved for a range of applications when using standard server infrastructure for the 5G SA User Plane Function (UPF). Hear from Intel, SK Telecom and Supermicro in the Groundbreaking 5G Core Performance Webinar to learn more about 5G core transformation, including insights on the transition to a cloud-native core architecture.



OpenNESS 20.06 Released

We are pleased to announce the 20.06 release of OpenNESS, which includes several feature enhancements and introduces the Intel® Distribution of Open Network Edge Services Software with enhanced features and optimizations. OpenNESS 20.06 enables new capabilities, including inferencing at the network edge with the Visual Cloud Accelerator Card – Analytics (VCAC-A), support for extended Berkeley Packet Filter (eBPF), a new telemetry service, and Helm Charts to package and deploy applications faster.
