5G wireless networks promise a dramatic improvement in bandwidth and latency, delivering an unprecedented level of service and unlocking new use cases for mobile operators. To make this promise a reality, 5G wireless infrastructure requires new levels of processing power to meet this surging demand for compute.
From baseband SoCs with integrated DSP cores and Arm multi-core SoCs to security and workload optimized hardware acceleration, Marvell offers a wide range of carrier infrastructure products and proof of concept contributions fueling a world of intelligent connectivity. Transportation, industrial manufacturing, entertainment and public services are among the sectors that stand to benefit as 5G infrastructure powered by Marvell SoCs improve the throughput and latencies to process applications at the network edge.
5G is not a one-size-fits-all model. 5G will co-exist with 4G LTE while enabling selected new services by taking advantage of new network capabilities and user experiences that only 5G technology enables. Different operators will have different approaches. Marvell has made key contributions to industry associations like the Telecom Infra Project’s OpenCellular Project and the Open Network Foundation CORD program to ensure that no matter the use case or chosen approach, Marvell has the technology to make it work.
Marvell OCTEON processors and OCTEON Fusion-M infrastructure processors are targeted at multi-access edge computing and a variety of 5G RAN applications, including multi-sector macro base stations, micro base stations and intelligent remote radio heads as well as enterprise and microcell LTE base station designs.
Marvell Prestera packet processors are key building blocks for new enterprise network architectures. Marvell switch products enable high-density throughput for attaching to networking storage devices.
