The transition from 4G to 5G will drive challenging requirements for infrastructure. With latency demands decreasing up to 50x, throughput demands increasing by 100x and the number of connections expected to increase by 100x, the underlying architecture will transform.
As Infrastructure grapples with the demands for service agility as delivered by Network Virtualization, it needs to comprehend the added overhead.
Network nodes have fixed constraints such as power limits, space and form factor and the need for real-time processing to be able to handle events driven by IoT and other emerging needs.
To balance these competing requirements, the infrastructure will require architectural compatible solutions optimized for differing workloads, with the right combination of compute and network function acceleration. One size will not fit all.
The ARM ecosystem delivers a range of solutions from optimized silicon to systems that scale from core to edge to access.
