Samsung Achieves 305Gbps on Its 5G SA Core

As the communication network continues to transform, a 5G standalone (SA) Core with a new service-based network architecture is needed to deliver the full promise of 5G across enhanced mobile broadband, ultra-reliable low-latency communications and the internet of things. In this context, improvements in overall core network performance and throughput are critical to deliver more immersive 5G experiences.

Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd., along with Intel, today announced a significant performance breakthrough on its 5G SA Core. Optimizing with the 2nd Generation Intel® Xeon® Scalable processor and the Intel® Ethernet Network Adapter E810 with Enhanced Dynamic Device Personalization (DDP), Samsung reached a 5G SA Core data processing capacity of 305 gigabits per second (Gbps) per server. The two companies verified this performance in a mobile network environment with commercial features enabled.

“The transition to 5G SA Core is essential to achieve the full potential of 5G,” said Alex Quach, vice president and general manager of the Wireline and Core Network Division at Intel. “This milestone achieved with Samsung is a verification of how strong industry collaboration and the use of innovative technologies can enhance performance to accelerate this transition and pave the way to new network and edge services.”

Samsung and Intel implemented a simplified system configuration and optimized packet processing to boost network performance. Achieving the 305Gbps-per-server milestone implies that each server has the capacity to host more than 200,000 users live-streaming standard definition videos simultaneously.
