Changing RAN Deployments Offer Transformation for vRAN
Communications Service Providers are transitioning from closed proprietary RAN systems to open, disaggregated solutions with off-the-shelf components that provide greater flexibility and simplicity and lower TCO.
Intel® Ethernet Network Adapters with hardware-enhanced timing synchronization enable service providers to build vRAN solutions to meet unique customer needs, including system size and budget.
Simplicity for Timing Synchronization from the Cloud to the 5G Edge
Growth in 5G RAN and edge deployments is driving demand for high-precision timing synchronization across the network. Standards-based PCIe Intel® Ethernet 800 series Network Adapters, with optional GNSS module and onboard oscillator, support 1588 PTPV2 and SyncE to deliver high-precision timing synchronization from the cloud to the 5G edge.
