Radisys teamed up with Napatech and Xilinx to deliver a smart, virtualized RAN Accelerator solution that enables mobile operators to offload compute-intensive operations such as networking and cryptography workloads onto FPGA boards and free up valuable CPU resources on standard x86 platforms. Utilizing this offload technique, mobile operators can gain 10x performance for virtualized 5G applications running on standard server platforms and overcome performance bottlenecks. The solution leverages Radisys’ RAN software, Napatech’s SmartNICs based on Xilinx FPGAs, and Silex Inside crypto technology to provide an industry-best performance/cost and performance/power platform that scales from 1G to more than 10G on standard servers, driving significantly better ROI for mobile operators.
