Samsung and Intel achieve 305Gbps on Its 5G SA Core

Samsung demonstrates outstanding 5G Standalone (SA) Core performance with Intel

Last updated:

Samsung and Intel have achieved a 5G SA Core data processing capacity of 305Gbps (Gigabits per second) per server and latency improvement in a mobile network environment with commercial features enabled.

This superior performance of Samsung’s 5G SA Core was accomplished using the 2nd generation Intel® Xeon® Scalable processor and the Intel® Ethernet Network Adapter E810 with Enhanced Dynamic Device Personalization (DDP).

The capacity of 305Gpbs is equivalent to hosting more than 200,000 users that are live-streaming standard definition (SD) videos simultaneously.

The resulting performance advancement will not only help increase cost-efficiency for 5G Core network deployments, but also help accelerate the delivery of next-generation, high-capacity networks. This will foster more immersive 5G use cases that require much higher data volume processing with low latency. These include augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR) and vehicle-to-everything (V2X), experiences, which can be enjoyed without impact to performance through greater capacity.

5G’s Expanding Capacity

Normally, data processing requires a complex path using multiple cores, including packet distribution, transmission, and processing cores. With the Intel Ethernet Network Adapter E810 with Enhanced DDP, the data distribution and transmission functions are better optimized across the network adapter and the CPU cores, resulting in higher performance. Samsung and Intel were able to implement a simplified system configuration and boost packet processing and overall network performance.

“Through close collaboration with Intel, we were able to achieve an industry-leading performance with our 5G SA Core,” said Sohyong Chong, Senior Vice President and Head of Core Software R&D, Networks Business at Samsung Electronics.

“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.”

Samsung’s 5G Cloud Native core allows network operators to launch new services quickly and upgrade frequently according to their business needs while reducing OPEX by providing higher operational efficiency. Samsung 5G core solutions using micro-services architecture, E2E dynamic orchestration and automation, CI/CD, open source platform services, telco-grade performance support, and telco-oriented open sources will deliver an E2E solution that drives success for network operators.

“The transition to 5G Standalone Core is essential to achieve the full potential of 5G,” said Alex Quach, Vice President and General Manager, Wireline and Core Network Division, Intel Corporation.

“This milestone achieved with Samsung is a verification of how strong industry collaboration and the use of innovative technologies can enhance performance to accelerate this transition and pave the way to new network and edge services.”
