Red Hat and NVIDIA collaborate on RAN deployments

Red Hat and NVIDIA collaborate on RAN deployments
Open-source solutions provider Red Hat has announced at MWC 2023 a collaboration with NVIDIA, a leader in artificial intelligence computing, to deliver radio access network (RAN) deployments on industry-standard servers across hybrid and multicloud.

 From private data centres to multiple public clouds to the network edge,Red Hat OpenShift, the industry’s leading enterprise Kubernetes platform, now supports NVIDIA converged accelerators and the NVIDIA Aerial SDK for software-defined 5G virtual radio access networks (vRAN) and enterprise AI applications.

This delivers a composable infrastructure to customers, enabling them to better meet the data demands of compute-heavy applications foredge computing,private 5G, artificial intelligence (AI) and more, with greater flexibility and interoperability, risk mitigation and a faster return on investment.

Acomposable infrastructurehelps to streamline resources and optimize existing IT environments by removing the need for specialised, space-consuming hardware and specialised software. NVIDIA GPUs, DPUs and converged accelerators, which combine a NVIDIA Ampere GPU with a NVIDIA BlueField-2 in a single, high-performance package, can take the load off traditional CPUs by disaggregating compute, storage and networking resources to process packets faster and with greater security measures by isolating infrastructure-heavy tasks.

With Red Hat support of NVIDIA converged accelerators and the NVIDIA Aerial SDK, customers can benefit from lower total cost of ownership, greater acceleration of network deployments across the hybrid and multicloud, composable infrastructure, connectivity for billions of devices, and the acceleration of additional use cases – including multi-access edge computing(MEC), autonomous vehicles, industrial and agricultural – by enabling AI and machine learning at the edge.

NVIDIA Aerial is an application framework for building high-performance, software-defined, cloud-native 5G RAN applications at scale to address increasing consumer demand.
