Samsung Electronics demonstrated a significant performance boost on its 5G SA Core, in collaboration with Intel. The two companies achieved a 5G SA Core data processing capacity of 305Gbps per server and latency improvement in a mobile network environment with commercial features enabled.
This performance of Samsung’s 5G SA Core is achieved 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 200,000 users that are live-streaming SD videos simultaneously.
This performance advancement will increase cost-efficiency for 5G Core network deployments and will accelerate the delivery of high-capacity networks. Normally, data processing requires a complex path using multiple cores, but with 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.
Sohyong Chong, Senior Vice President and Head of Core Software R&D, Networks Business at Samsung Electronics said, “Through close collaboration with Intel, we were able to achieve an industry-leading performance with our 5G SA Core. 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”.
Alex Quach, Vice President and General Manager, Wireline and Core Network Division, Intel Corporation said, “The transition to 5G Standalone Core is essential to achieve the full potential of 5G. 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”.
Samsung has pioneered the successful delivery of 5G end-to-end solutions including chipsets, radios, and core network technologies. The company supports 5G commercial services in the world’s leading markets, including Korea, the U.S. and Japan. In addition, the company is rapidly expanding its global footprint to new markets including Canada and New Zealand.
