“The edge cloud will play an essential role in delivering the compute power required for 5G,” said Marc Rouanna, President of Mobile Networks at Nokia. “By expanding our AirFrame and 5G Future X portfolio we can provide a network architecture that meets the needs of any operator and their customers.”

AirFrame has been created with the technologies and opportunities that will become more widely accessible with the introduction of the next generation wireless technology. Examples of these include virtual and augmented reality, and industrial IoT, with AirFrame utilising Intel’s state of the art Xeon Scalable processors in order to support the computing power required by such applications.

“With AirFrame, Nokia and Intel are bringing the performance and capabilities of Intel architecture-based cloud data centers to the edge to deliver the optimal end user experience for 5G deployments including virtual reality, augmented reality and industrial automation,” said Dan Rodriguez, Vice President of Data Centre Group and General Manager of Communications Infrastructure Division at Intel.

The launch of AirFrame expands Nokia’s 5G Future X portfolio, offering leading data centre architecture, allowing operators to efficiently manage their data demands.
