Nokia launches anyRAN

Nokia says, "The software can run on any partner's Cloud and Server infrastructure in addition to Nokia AirScale base stations and Nokia AirFrame servers. This approach removes the complexity from deployments by allowing a mix of purpose-built, hybrid, and fully Cloud-based RAN solutions, enabling deep multi-level disaggregation at the Cloud Infrastructure layer and data center (server) hardware layer."

Cloud RAN SmartNIC for anyRAN

The support for these solutions is the Nokia Cloud RAN SmartNIC, a Layer 1 (fronthaul) in-line acceleration card designed, which seamlessly integrates with all major cloud or server infrastructures. To achieve Layer 1 (L1) acceleration, specialized silicon with exceptional computing power is required, which general-purpose processors cannot provide. The Nokia Cloud RAN SmartNIC employs optimized silicon technology that is dedicated, more energy-efficient, and delivers higher performance. Nokia and its partners have already conducted successful end-to-end 5G data calls (Layer 3 calls) using Nokia's solution in multi-vendor setups.
