Saguna Networks Ltd. Key Developments

AMD and Saguna Collaborate on Low-Power High-Performance Mobile Edge Computing Solutions

AMD and Saguna have collaborated to create scalable and economical Mobile Edge Computing platforms for powering time-sensitive and bandwidth-intensive Internet of Things and mobile data and video applications. With the advent of IoT and the need to connect increasing numbers of connected devices, mobile networks face a tough scalability challenge. The need to secure the large volumes of data and content generated by these connected devices exacerbates the situation. Addressing these challenges, AMD and Saguna are working to help mobile operators and system integrators transform the centric mobile network architecture with distributed edge computing operating inside the Radio Access Network, in close proximity to the end user or thing. The pre-integrated platform design enables network vendors and system integrators to scale and secure mobile networks while creating a flexible MEC design that reduces time-to-market for developing and deploying new MEC services. The joint initiatives are based on Saguna Open-RAN MEC platform running on the high-performance AMD Embedded R-Series processor. The AMD R-Series is a system-on-chip that combines GPU and CPU processing resources that can simultaneously execute IPSec security, control, and data processing. By packaging these capabilities in low-power processing architecture and bringing them to the edge of mobile networks, AMD processing can dramatically improve performance and increase security while helping reduce operating costs. The Saguna Open-RAN MEC platform creates an open ecosystem and long-term growth engine inside the mobile RAN. The ETSI MEC standard-based solution enables mobile operators to quickly and effectively deploy new revenue generating services for content delivery, Internet-of-things connectivity, retail and enterprise applications and more. With fully virtualized software architecture, Saguna Open-RAN reduces CAPEX and OPEX promoting the adoption network function virtualization.
