5G Networks

5G Networks Will Power Life-Changing Applications


The dramatic improvement in broadband speed and reduction of latency in 5G networks, enhanced by Edge computing,
will change the way we get around, create, work, play, stay healthy, and interact with the world around us.


Open Hardware Platforms Will Enable Virtualized 5G Networks

5G networks are designed to leverage virtualization and containers on open hardware platforms – reducing
dependence on legacy proprietary hardware.Supermicro brings proven expertise in optimized server hardware
and deep virtualization experience to these growing 5G deployments.

The Radio Access Network (RAN) will be centralized and virtualized into server-based Centralized Units (CUs)
and Distributed Units (DUs),slimming down fixed-function hardware into Remote Radio Units (RRUs).
Intelligent Edge servers will support real-time applications withcomputing and AI inferencing. And 4G
Evolved Packet Core (EPC) functions will be replaced by 5G Core components running as virtualized
network functions (VNFs) in data centers and the cloud.

Supermicro Powers 5G Networks from End-to-End
