The inclusion of the Intel Xeon Scalable Processors will provide faster speeds, superior data throughput and lower energy consumption to support Nokia’s 5G AirScale Cloud RAN and 5G Cloud Core solutions.

Nokia AirFrame can better power Nokia’s AirScale all-in-cloud virtual RAN (vRAN) and 5G core solutions to meet the requirements demanded by 5G technologies. Nokia’s AirScale Cloud RAN virtualizes radio functions to deliver ultra-low latency and high bit rates for demanding services, as well as providing the flexibility to deliver scalability, agility and operational efficiency to meet demand.

Cristina Rodriguez, vice president and general manager of Intel’s Wireless Access Network Division, said: “AirFrame will take advantage of the enhanced capabilities offered by  the latest generation of Intel Xeon Scalable processors and our platform ingredients including Ethernet adapters and accelerators, giving operators a high performance and optimized solution that can scale across their network workloads from core to edge.”
