Samsung, working with Intel, has achieved a 5G SA Core data processing capacity of 305Gbps per server and latency improvement in a mobile network environment with commercial features enabled for the first time.
The capacity of 305Gpbs is equivalent to hosting more than 200,000 users live-streaming standard definition (SD) videos simultaneously.
Samsung said this achievement will foster more immersive 5G use cases that require much higher data volume processing with low latency such as augmented reality, virtual reality and vehicle-to-everything experiences.
The test involved an Intel Ethernet Network Adapter E810 with Enhanced DDP, enablingthe data distribution and transmission functions to be better optimised across the network adapter and CPU cores. Samsung and Intel were able to implement a simplified system configuration and boost packet processing and overall network performance.
“Samsung’s cloud-native 5G SA Core, through its highly flexible and scalable design, will enable our customers to launch 5G services more swiftly and cost-effectively,” said Sohyong Chong, SVP and head of Core Software R&D, Networks Business at Samsung Electronics.
