Nokia AirFrame Edge Server based on 2nd Gen Intel® Xeon® Scalable CPUs and the Intel® FPGA PAC N3000 suits edge and far-edge cloud RAN, MEC, and 5G deployments

Nokia AirFrame open edge servers feature an ultra-small footprint so they fit well in many locations including existing base station facilities and far-edge sites. These compact servers are provisioned with a real-time, OPNFV compatible, OpenStack distribution that provides both low latency and high throughput for cloud RAN and other applications. The software runs atop integrated 2nd Generation Intel® Xeon® Scalable CPUs and the optional Intel® FPGA Programmable Acceleration Card (Intel FPGA PAC) N3000, which enhance the server’s capabilities with respect to artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) workloads. An optional Fronthaul Gateway module provides 5G/4G/CPRI connectivity to existing legacy radios and contains an L2/L3 switch and an Intel® Stratix® 10 FPGA, which  provides high-performance L1 processing.

The servers are available in OCP-accepted 2RU or 3RU chassis with as many as five server sled slots and dual redundant AC or DC power supplies. Nokia offers both 1U and 2U server sleds based on 2nd Generation Intel Xeon Scalable processors with connectivity through front server slots for high accessibility.

A new 4-minute Nokia video details the features and benefits of the Nokia AirFrame open edge server for use in a variety of deployments including Cloud RAN, Multi-access Edge Computing (MEC), and 5G.
