With more Operators seeking OpenRAN based solutions and adopting the O-RAN fronthaul spec, it is important for Distributed Unit (DU) implementers to have complete solutions including Supermicro’s optimized hardware and Intel’s FlexRAN software. This session will go through the high-level components for the DU including FEC acceleration and time sync that runs on an x86 Intel® based server. In this presentation, Supermicro and Intel will share what they are providing to make an OpenRAN DU a reality.
