In past 3 years, even under the influence of COVID-19 and the weaker global economy, the traffic growth of mobile network has doubled since 2020, the average monthly data volume per user surpassed 15GB in 2022. Traffic growth is driven by both the improvements in 5G mobile network performance, and the improved smartphone capabilities and the rising number of 5G subscriptions. Right now, 5G population coverage is over 25 percent globally and the number will increase afterwards.
The increasing data volume gives great pressure on mobile network operators, they want to maximize revenue and reduce every bit cost delivered by their 5G networks. The 5G user plane function (UPF) works as a gateway and processes with 5G data flow, the packet processing technology is key to improve the throughput, reduce the footprint and increase the integration of the system deployed on the COTS, eventually to lower the bit cost in the pipe to save CAPEX.
Genew Technologies UnionCore UPF provides Terabit performance to support the needs of mobile network operators. It leverages the Intel® Xeon® Scalable processor and Intel Ethernet 800 Series Network Adapters to raise the overall network performance, and enhance the efficiency of functions like encryption and decryption, firewalls, packet inspection and routing. In the fast-forwarding mode of UPF, it achieves about 1Tbps throughput on 2 2U rack servers. This ultimate high integration UPF allows mobile network operators to meet the increasing requirement of industry and be more competitive for the 5G future.
Genew Technologies UnionCore containerized UPF is not only improved in performance, but also has a fully convergent design for simultaneous 4G and 5G services. And it is optimized for cloud-native, all network functions are deployed in containers to be a service-based architecture, it could be deployed in the cloud in datacenter or deployed in a MEC environment, and it supports 5G dynamic network slicing.
