Nokia & Intel to collaborate on 5G Radio and Cloud innovations

Nokia & Intel to collaborate on 5G radio technology innovations

Nokia is now collaborating with the Intel on silicon technology innovations for its 5G radio portfolio.

The next-gen network needs to support billions of devices and machines, as well as millions of network nodes, for which the existing infrastructure must revolve rapidly, notes the announcement.

The companies have jointly developed custom silicon solutions that are used in Nokia’s AirScale radio access products. These products are shipped across the globe as a part of Nokia's 5G portfolio and are powered by ReefShark.

ReefShark helps to reduce the size, cost, and power consumption of each network element while boosting the performance of the MIMO antennas.

Executive Opinion

President of Mobile Networks at Nokia, Tommi Uitto, said, "This partnership highlights our continued commitment to ensuring our 5G portfolio is underpinned by best-in-class technology. 5G networks need to support billions of devices and machines, and this massive increase in volume and scale means that existing infrastructure and components must evolve rapidly, adopting technologies and techniques to enable them to deploy 5G networks quickly."

Corporate Vice President and General Manager of Intel’s Network Platforms Group, Dan Rodriguez, said, "Implementing technology innovations from the core to the edge of the network is key to unlocking the full potential of 5G. Through our collaboration with Nokia, our broad portfolio of products, and ASIC capabilities, we are showing the value that can be realized with a consistent, high-performance architecture across the intelligent 5G network."

Nokia, Intel, 5G, Edge Technologies and Cloud

With Intel, Nokia plans to strengthen its 5G AirScale network solutions and advance the capabilities of its ReefShark chipset based on the 3GPP 5G New Radio specification.

Additionally, Nokia revealed that it would continue to adopt the latest general-purpose Intel Xeon processor technology in its AirFrame cloud data centre solution. It will help Nokia realize the benefits of a common architecture from cloud to edge.

Intel's second-gen Xeon scalable processor is also included in the Nokia’s AirFrame data centre solution for core and edge. Additionally, Intel's second-gen Xeon scalable processor included in AirScale al-in-cloud virtual RAN, and 5G core solutions to meet the requirements of 5G.

Just a few days back, Nokia announced End-To-End 4G and 5G Slicing Network.

In February, Nokia introduced its Cloud-native Network Operations Software to manage 5G Networks.
