SynaXG Collaborates with Wind River and Ampere to Accelerate Next-Level O-RAN Integration

Combined vDU Solution Advances the Future of 5G O-RAN Networks with Unmatched Energy Efficiency and Integration

BARCELONA, Spain, Feb. 28, 2024 — MWC Barcelona 2024 – SynaXG, a leading provider of converged AI+5G and O-RAN network solutions, today announced a strategic collaboration with Wind River and Ampere® Computing to deliver breakthrough technology for O-RAN infrastructure. The partnership successfully integrates SynaXG’s virtualized distributed unit (vDU) card with StarlingX supported by Wind River and Ampere’s multicore processors to redefine 5G network infrastructure. StarlingX is a cloud-native, Kubernetes, open-source infrastructure project hosted by the OpenInfra Foundation. Showcasing unparalleled hardware/software integration to enhance network efficiency and cloud management, the collaborative vDU solution will be unveiled at MWC Barcelona 2024.

The collaboration sets new industry standards for power efficiency, ease of integration, and cloud-based network management, propelling SynaXG, Wind River and Ampere to the forefront of the O-RAN ecosystem evolution. The integrated vDU solution enables seamless integration with protocol stacks and fronthaul networks, bolstered by Wind River’s cloud infrastructure expertise, ensuring effortless network upgrades and maintenance of O-RAN infrastructure. The ease of use and maturity of SynaXG’s vDU solutions for O-RAN networks simplify and streamline the integration process. Ampere’s ultra-low-power, multicore processors deliver best-in-class energy efficiency to manage the power demands of modern networks.

“The platform built through our partnership with SynaXG and Wind River expands the limits of what’s possible in O-RAN networks, setting new benchmarks for efficiency, sustainability and performance in 5G network infrastructure,” said Sean Varley, VP of Business Development and Chief Evangelist at Ampere. “With Ampere loud Native Processors at the core of these platforms, service providers can now redefine their infrastructure plans according to a much more scalable and sustainable standard, backed by an increasingly diverse and mature ecosystem of solution providers.”

Ampere’s multicore processor technology is pivotal in helping mobile operators increase energy efficiency in 5G infrastructure, which ultimately lowers 5G network deployment costs. Boosting the number of Layer 1 (L1) accelerator cards per server greatly enhances cellular network capacity. Similarly, it is necessary to increase the number of CPU cores to provide a higher level of L2/L3 predictable performance for latency and jitter-sensitive network workloads.

“Our partnership with Wind River and Ampere brings together the best in hardware and software integration, energy efficiency, and cloud management to simplify the deployment of O-RAN networks,” said Mantosh Malhotra, Chief Business Officer of SynaXG. “As a leader in integrating AI with next-gen 5G technologies, SynaXG delivers solutions for O-RAN infrastructure that meet the performance demands of today’s networks and pave the way for a more sustainable, efficient future in telecommunications.”

“Providing new levels of innovation around power efficiency, ease of integration, and cloud-based network management, our collaboration with SynaXG and Ampere can help advance O-RAN technology,” said Gil Hellmann, Vice President, Global Telecom Solutions Engineering, at Wind River. “As a leader in the telecom landscape that powers the majority of 5G O-RAN deployments with global operators, Wind River delivers cloud-native expertise and solutions that enable the high-scale deployment of next-generation network infrastructure for service providers worldwide.”

The complete O-RAN performance test platform includes a virtualized centralized unit (vCU) and vDU from Fujitsu, Wind River’s expertise in StarlingX distributed cloud infrastructure containers as a service (CaaS), Ampere® Altra® Q80-30 multicore processor based on Arm cores, SynaXG SV-1000 vDU, and a Supermicro MegaDC server connected to a Fujitsu 5G radio and 5G core.

For organizations that require full lifecycle support and services around an open-source solution, Wind River offers Wind River Studio as commercially supported StarlingX. Wind River Studio provides a fully cloud-native, Kubernetes and container-based architecture for the development, deployment, operations, and servicing of distributed edge networks at scale.
