This white paper discusses the advantage of community based innovation, explores the potential applications of AI in telecom, assesses some of the challenges in applying AI and describes how the Acumos project can help solve some of these problems.
This white paper introduces the virtual RAN, cloud RAN and MEC with an insight into the new applications they can enable, with a focus on how carriers can potentially save money on infrastructure development and make money from new services.
As virtual infrastructure extends toward the edge, technology is required to overcome some unique challenges. The solution is to implement FPGA-based SmartNICs, which offer scalable, deterministic performance with very low latency at a fraction of the space, power, and overall cost. Such a solution is secure, open, and fully programmable, ensuring that costs remain low well into the future.
This white paper provides insights on why DPI is important for vEPC solutions and on the different uses cases it enables. It also discusses the aspects involved in deciding whether to build or buy DPI.
