Nokia, Intel collaborate on 5G new radio, cloud infrastructure Featured

By

Nokia is collaborating with Intel on technology advancements for its 5G radio portfolio, with the two companies announcing they are working closely on the new Intel Atom P5900 processor that combines compute, connectivity and acceleration technologies.

The jointly developed custom silicon solutions are included in Nokia’s AirScale radio access products being shipped worldwide as part of its 5G ‘Powered by ReefShark’ portfolio.

Nokia says that by adopting ReefShark widely in its AirScale portfolio, it is "significantly boosting performance and lowering the energy footprint of 5G network rollouts" - and it will continue to adopt the latest general purpose Intel Xeon processor in its AirFrame cloud data centre solution.

To realise the benefits of a common architecture from cloud to edge, Nokia and Intel say they will further their collaboration by incorporating the latest Intel Xeon processor technology in Nokia’s cloud infrastructure. Nokia’s AirFrame data centre solution for edge and core also uses the latest second generation Intel Xeon Scalable processor with built-in AI acceleration.

Tommi Uitto, President of Mobile Networks at Nokia, said: “This partnership highlights our continued commitment to ensuring our 5G portfolio is underpinned by best-in-class technology”.

“5G networks need to support billions of devices and machines, and this massive increase in volume and scale means that existing infrastructure and components must evolve rapidly, adopting technologies and techniques to enable to deploy 5G networks quickly.”

“Implementing technology innovations from the core to the edge of the network is key to unlocking the full potential of 5G,” said Dan Rodriguez, Corporate Vice President and General Manager of Intel’s Network Platforms Group.

“Through our collaboration with Nokia, our broad portfolio of products and ASIC capabilities, we are showing the value that can be realised with a consistent, high-performance architecture across the intelligent 5G network.”

LAYER 1 ENCRYPTION A KEY TO CYBER-SECURITY SOLUTION

Security requirements such as confidentiality, integrity and authentication have become mandatory in most industries.

Data encryption methods previously used only by military and intelligence services have become common practice in all data transfer networks across all platforms, in all industries where information is sensitive and vital (financial and government institutions, critical infrastructure, data centres, and service providers).

Get the full details on Layer-1 encryption solutions straight from PacketLight’s optical networks experts.

This white paper titled, “When 1% of the Light Equals 100% of the Information” is a must read for anyone within the fiber optics, cybersecurity or related industry sectors.
