KDDI deploys HPE ProLiant DL110 Gen10 Plus telco server

Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) has revealed that KDDI, a telecom network operator in Japan, is using the HPE ProLiant DL110 Gen10 Plus – Telco server for the network operation of O-RAN compliant 5G base stations.
KDDI AU store JapanKDDI, which is accelerating construction of 5G base stations across Japan, is using HPE ProLiant DL110 Gen10 Plus – Telco server for purpose of virtualizing base station. HPE said it is designed for Open RAN (radio access network) and vRAN workloads, and is optimized for edge applications that require high bandwidth and low latency.

“The O-RAN compliant 5G virtualized base stations we developed are now commercially operational,” said Kazuyuki Yoshimura, Chief Technology Officer, KDDI Corporation. “With open and virtualized base stations, KDDI aims to provide customers with advanced communication services which flexibly and quickly support their use cases.”

HPE is partnering with operators to provide a consistent near zero-touch operational experience for the deployment of its disaggregated RAN infrastructure and workloads, bringing infrastructure automation and management, as well as network and service management to a single, centralized and cloud-based platform.

HPE said ProLiant DL110 Gen10 Plus – Telco server includes built-in security, intelligent management automation, is based on an open, standards-based architecture, and supports software-based RAN solutions from a variety of vendors.

Operational management efficiency is achieved through automation and software defined control to help reduce time for provisioning, maintenance, and deployment. The server is carrier-grade and integrates multiple functions (baseband unit, relay gateway, and cell site gateway router) to reduce the footprint needed in 5G base stations.

The HPE ProLiant DL110 Gen10 Plus – Telco server is an integral component of the HPE Open RAN Solution Stack which complements the HPE 5G Core Stack. HPE Open RAN Solution Stack helps operators to design, deploy and manage resources and applications together from a common and centralized platform.
