If a Private 5G deployment is to be successful, operators must strive for maximum efficiency. This means maximizing the number of users for each mobile core while minimizing energy consumption. Charlie Ashton, Senior Director of Business Development from Napatech, provides insightful advice on:
– The financial pressure operators face in scaling up their private wireless networks, emphasizing the need to balance user support and energy consumption for a better return on investment. – How Napatech’s solutions maximize server utilization. He highlights the User Plane Function (UPF) subsystem, which, when offloaded to a programmable smart network interface card (SmartNIC), can significantly enhance packet core performance. – How this approach not only minimizes data center capex, opex, and energy consumption but also frees up compute resources on the server for applications better suited for the CPU, rather than packet processing workloads.
Watch and learn how Napatech’s SmartNIC-based solution for UPF offload, enabled by an optimized software stack, can help you achieve your private wireless deployment goals.
