OpenRAN is anticipated as the next revolution for Radio Access Network (RAN) infrastructure, and considered as an optimal solution to enhance capacity and coverage, while reducing latency caused by escalating growth of data on the 5G network. OpenRAN solutions offer flexibility and scalability through the disaggregation of hardware and software, and the utilization of Commercial-Off-The-Shelf (COTS) hardware.
Lanner collaborated with NVIDIA to build a scalable, hyper-converged edge platform for OpenRAN infrastructure. Powered by the packet/networking SmartNIC with NVIDIA Bluefield 2 co-processor, Lanner’s COTS-based edge platforms feature programmable, intelligent switching capability that can offload open architecture CPU and is cost-effective in the long term through supporting protocol-independent and multi-Tbps networking performance without being compromised by hardware bottleneck.
