HPE & 5G Lab Germany Team Up to Deliver Next-Gen Edge Applications
PALO ALTO, Calif. -- Hewlett Packard Enterprise (NYSE:HPE) today announced a collaboration with the 5G Lab Germany, a consortium of researchers focused on delivering key technologies to enable 5G wireless networks. Through this collaboration, HPE and the 5G Lab will research the impacts of 5G wireless networks combined with HPE Edgeline Converged Edge Systems on the telecommunications and mobile industries. Additionally, Edgeline systems will be deployed at the network edge to enable the next generation of applications to take advantage of 5G network performance.
5G wireless networks promise to adapt to consumer behavior in real time. The bandwidth improvements from 5G are expected to dramatically increase the amount of processing required throughout the network to deliver existing and new applications. The latency improvements will enable a new tier of automation and control that are not possible with today’s 4G wireless networks. HPE and 5G Lab will partner to build proof points in autonomous vehicle intercommunication and deliver rich end user applications by leveraging 5G wireless networks and with HPE Edgeline Systems.
“5G plays a critical role as an enabler of the Internet of Things (IoT),” said Dr. Tom Bradicich, vice president and general manager, servers, converged edge and IoT systems, Hewlett Packard Enterprise. “We are collaborating with the 5G Lab to develop high performance compute systems at the edge, which can consume and analyze data instantaneously to address the needs for the next generation of automation and mobile applications, particularly smart city and autonomous vehicle use cases.”
The HPE Edgeline Converged Edge Systems feature a first-of-a-kind integration of the PXIe instrumentation standard in partnership with National Instruments, on which the industry’s fastest 5G network testbeds have been built. 5G capabilities, coupled with Edgeline systems, provide the industry’s most powerful integrated communication and compute platform to empower 5G applications.
