Beyond 5G (B5G) : Multi-Tenant Private Networks, Powered by AMAX’s MEC, HPC & AI Servers

As 5G Networks continue to evolve and commercial 6G developments loom on the horizon, expected to deploy between 2030-2035, telecom providers require increasingly robust systems to meet the growing demands of data. The 5G Network and Beyond 5G (B5G) are expected to meet the massive demand for data rates, especially for extended reality (XR), augmented reality (AR) and mixed reality (MR). In order to meet these various requirements, the future new radio not only considers the sub-6GHz but also takes millimeter-wave (mmWave) band and terahertz (THz) band into implementation.  Therefore, base stations require more effective mechanisms for real-time interaction, using deep reinforcement learning (DRL), and the system capacity becomes challenging.

The emergence of private networks guarantees the delivery of voice, text, data, video, and connection to IoT devices, as well as integration with computing systems and machines.  Among the technical challenges, the SDN (software defined networking) and NFVi (network function virtualization infrastructure) data-driven network management are validated through execution in several scenarios with self-learning machine learning (ML) algorithms.

AMAX’s 5G/B5G platforms draw inspiration from Open-RAN (O-RAN), IEEE, ETSI, 6G-IA, 5FPPP, and Next G Alliance. These platforms efficiently integrate a wide range of advanced technologies with highly efficient compute power and storage to support the current demand of upcoming 5G services.  The O-RAN platforms process independently at the Remote, the Distributed and Central Units (RUs, DUs, CUs) placed in multiple locations supporting the functional splits.  Our Multi-access Edge Computing (MEC) gateways and High-Performance Computing (HPC) servers play an important role to further guarantee the capability of the O-RAN solution to support the stringent requirements associated with end-to-end latency and transport network capacity.

  • Network Intelligence: AI/ML will bring a major disruption of data processing, systems management, and network infrastructure. The end-to-end network automation requires superior computing performance and resources.

  • New Devices and Interfaces: Future Networks will be connected to multitudes of devices and interfaces, enabling human-machine and machine-machine communications.

  • Network of Networks: The B5G/6G networks cover multiple scales of virtual and physical networks.  e.g. Campus networks expand processes with requirements on connectivity, edge processing for further automation and Quality of Service (QoS).  And, the tailored network functionality requires to support the New Controlled Value Chains which including various type of resources – AI, data and communication processing.

To future-proof IT architecture and address today’s most complex computing challenges, AMAX® benchmarks real-world performance improvements that the latest technology innovations bring to today’s fiercely competitive data-driven landscape.
