Samsung and Intel announced a major performance breakthrough in the 5G SA core network. Both companies have implemented optimized data packet processing and a simplified system configuration to hugely improve network performance.
Using the 2nd generation Intel Xeon Scalable processor and the Intel Ethernet Network Adapter E810 with Enhanced Dynamic Device Personalization (DDP), Samsung has achieved a 5G SA Core data processing capacity of 305Gbps*.
* The capacity of 305Gpbs is equal to hosting 200,000+ users that are live-streaming standard definition videos simultaneously.
The resulting performance helps accelerate the delivery of next-generation, high-capacity networks. This will also raise more immersive 5G use cases that need much higher data volume processing such as augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR), and vehicle-to-everything (V2X).
Samsung Electronics Networks Business’ Senior Vice President said – “Through close collaboration with Intel, we were able to achieve an industry-leading performance with our 5G SA Core. Samsung’s cloud-native 5G SA Core, through its highly flexible and scalable design, will enable our customers to launch 5G services more swiftly and cost-effectively.”
Vice President of Wireline and Core Network Division, Intel stated – “The transition to 5G Standalone Core is essential to achieve the full potential of 5G. This milestone achieved with Samsung is a verification of how strong industry collaboration and the use of innovative technologies can enhance performance to accelerate this transition and pave the way to new network and edge services.”
