Building efficient 5G NR base stations with Intel® Xeon® Scalable Processors

About this Webinar
5G brings many new capabilities over 4G including higher bandwidths, lower latencies, and more efficient use of radio spectrum. However, these improvements require a large increase in computing power in the base station. Fortunately the Xeon Scalable Processor series (Skylake-SP) recently introduced by Intel has a new high-performance instruction set called AVX-512 which is capable of delivering the compute needed to support the exciting new world of 5G.
In his talk Daniel will give an overview of the new capabilities of the AVX-512 instruction set and show why they are so beneficial to supporting 5G efficiently. The most obvious difference is that AVX-512 has double the compute performance of previous generations of instruction sets. Perhaps surprisingly though it is the addition of brand new instructions that can make the biggest improvements. The new instructions mean that software algorithms can become more efficient, thereby enabling even more effective use of the improvements in computing performance and leading to very high performance 5G NR software implementations.
