Enhance Agility with Cloud-Native NFV

Advances in Cloud technologies, new service offerings, and the ever-increasing demand for bandwidth are transforming communication service providers (CSPs). To keep pace, packet processing must be offloaded to hardware using DPDK, and the NVIDIA Mellanox ASAP2 (accelerated switching and packet processing) technology.

ASAP2 provides a time-bound packet flow engine that enables software-defined, hardware-accelerated infrastructure to provide optimized performance for virtual network functions (VNF) and containerized network functions (CNF). With ASAP2, I/O processing is offloaded to the NIC, freeing up server CPU. The server can dedicate its resources to application processing, resulting in higher system efficiency.

Intelligent Edge AI Computing

Automated vehicles, AR/VR, cloud gaming, Industry 4.0. These and many other emerging use cases have in common a need for Edge Artificial Intelligence (AI): the nexus of IoT, 5G, and AI running on multi-access edge computing (MEC) equipment.

Edge AI on MEC allows processing to be moved away from centralized data centers, so processing occurs closer to the user for optimal latency. NVIDIA offers a complete portfolio of ConnectX® SmartNICs and BlueField™ DPUs to offload networking and security functions and accelerate MEC packet processing using ASAP2 to implement AI decision making closer to the edge.

Bringing 5G Services to Life

With 5G, CSPs are adopting cloud technologies to build open, cost-effective, scalable and programmable networks. The NVIDIA 5T for 5G technology provides an ideal reference architecture for software-defined, hardware-accelerated 5G CloudRAN (Cloud radio access networks). 5T for 5G offers latency-sensitive scheduling with precise time accuracy of just 16ns to help solve the complex scheduling problems of 5G. This approach adds flexibility and efficiencies allowing CSPs to transform their business model and provide scalable data services to tenants and sub-tenants that offer elasticity and demand-based cost structures.
