SEOUL, Korea – Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. today announced a new collaboration with AMD to advance 5G virtualized RAN (vRAN) for network transformation. This collaboration represents Samsung's ongoing commitment to enriching vRAN and Open RAN ecosystems to help operators build and modernize mobile networks with unmatched flexibility and optimized performance.
The two companies have completed several rounds of tests at Samsung's lab to verify high-capacity and telco-grade performance using FDD bands and TDD Massive MIMO wide-bands, while significantly reducing power consumption. In this joint collaboration, Samsung used its versatile vRAN software integrated with the new AMD EPYC™ 8004 processors, focused on telco and intelligent edge. During technical verification, the EPYC™ 8004 processors combined with Samsung’s vRAN solutions delivered optimized cell capacity per server as well as high power efficiency.
Samsung will continue working with AMD to facilitate the acceleration of vRAN and Open RAN for 5G, and drive new innovation for next-generation networks.
Samsung's vRAN Ecosystem
Samsung has made significant strides with its vRAN ecosystem, expanding collaboration with industry-leading providers spanning a range of technologies, including: processors, COTS servers, container platforms (CaaS), xHaul transport and cloud solutions. This strong and growing ecosystem illustrates Samsung's leadership in offering vRAN and Open RAN solutions that are reliable, sustainable and meet or exceed telco-grade performance. Samsung has proven its extensive expertise in commercial networks for Tier 1 operators in the North America, Europe and Asia.
