NVIDIA (輝達) 今日宣布與全球領先開放原始碼解決方案供應商 Red Hat (紅帽) 共同合作，將在紅帽 OpenShift 上運作的高效能、軟體定義 5G 無線基礎架構，帶入電信產業。
這項合作案由 NVIDIA 創辦人暨執行長黃仁勳在洛杉磯世界行動通訊大會 (MWC Los Angeles) 主題演說中正式宣告。NVIDIA 將協助電信業者過渡轉至具備可運行各種由軟體定義之邊緣工作負載的5G網路。合作初期，將聚焦於 5G 無線接取網路 (RAN)，目標是要讓存取電信業者邊緣的人工智慧 (AI) 賦能應用，更加方便可及。
而讓 5G 供應商得以轉戰雲端原生架構的關鍵要素，正是 NVIDIA Aerial。甫於今日發表的 NVIDIA Aerial 軟體開發人員套件，能讓供應商藉著實現兩項必要的進展，打造與推出高效能、軟體定義的 5G 無線RAN。這兩項進展，就是 Mellanox 網路介面卡直通GPU記憶體的低延遲資料路徑，以及可以將所有資料保存在GPU高效能記憶體內的5G實體層信號處理引擎。
黃仁勳表示：「業界正在全力衝刺 5G，而『萬物皆具智慧』的革命，也方興未艾。即將遍佈在全球各地的數十億個感測器與裝置，可以實現新的應用與服務。 NVIDIA 正與紅帽攜手合作，要為這個全新的 5G 世界打造一個雲端原生的、具高度擴充性的高效能GPU運算架構。在 NVIDIA EGX Edge 超級運算平台 (Supercomputing Platform) 的驅動下，全新一波的應用即將崛起，一如當初的智慧型手機革命。」
紅帽 OpenShift 提供企業級、生產就緒的 Kubernetes，以便管理 Aerial 5G RAN、容量網路功能以及其它新的邊緣服務，並使它們自動化。這將協助電信業者以所需的規模，部署與管理現代化的架構。
紅帽總裁暨執行長 Jim Whitehurst 表示：「下個世代的行動網路，不會由不具彈性或獨門的解決方案所定義，它將創建在開放的雲端原生技術上。身為一家打造開放、創新電信架構的領導企業，我們認為電信業者的邊緣運行標準化的軟體，具有極大優勢，並可透過可動態擴充的服務，擔負起各式各樣的全新工作負荷。」
電信業者藉由在雲端原生的平台上運行 5G RAN，可以完全發揮他們的網路投資，並把包括 AI)、擴增實境 (AR) 、虛擬實境 (VR) 與遊戲等新服務，廣泛地導入市場。

Certain statements contained in this press release may constitute “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Forward-looking statements provide current expectations of future events based on certain assumptions and include any statement that does not directly relate to any historical or current fact. Actual results may differ materially from those indicated by such forward-looking statements as a result of various important factors, including: risks related to the ability of the Company to compete effectively; the ability to deliver and stimulate demand for new products and technological innovations on a timely basis; delays or reductions in information technology spending; the integration of acquisitions and the ability to market successfully acquired technologies and products; risks related to errors or defects in our offerings and third-party products upon which our offerings depend; risks related to the security of our offerings and other data security vulnerabilities; fluctuations in exchange rates; changes in and a dependence on key personnel; the effects of industry consolidation; uncertainty and adverse results in litigation and related settlements; the inability to adequately protect Company intellectual property and the potential for infringement or breach of license claims of or relating to third party intellectual property; the ability to meet financial and operational challenges encountered in our international operations; and ineffective management of, and control over, the Company’s growth and international operations, as well as other factors. In addition to these factors, actual future performance, outcomes, and results may differ materially because of more general factors including (without limitation) general industry and market conditions and growth rates, economic and political conditions, governmental and public policy changes and the impact of natural disasters such as earthquakes and floods. The forward-looking statements included in this press release represent the Company’s views as of the date of this press release and these views could change. However, while the Company may elect to update these forward-looking statements at some point in the future, the Company specifically disclaims any obligation to do so. These forward-looking statements should not be relied upon as representing the Company’s views as of any date subsequent to the date of this press release.
Certain statements in this press release including, but not limited to, statements as to: NVIDIA and Red Hat expanding their alliance and delivering 5G infrastructure to the telecom industry; the benefits and impact of the collaboration between NVIDIA and Red Hat, including its ability to help telcos transition to 5G networks running software-defined edge workloads and its initial focus being on RAN making AI-enabled applications more accessible at the telco edge; the benefits, impact, abilities and performance of NVIDIA Aerial and Red Hat OpenShift; the industry ramping and the smart everything revolution beginning; billions of sensors and devices being sprinkled all over the world and enabling new applications and services; a new wave of applications emerging; the next generation of mobile networks being founded in open cloud-native technologies; the advantages to running standardized software at the telco edge and it enabling a range of workloads via dynamically scalable services; and telcos being able to make full use of their network investments and bring new services by running 5G RAN on a cloud-native platform are forward-looking statements that are subject to risks and uncertainties that could cause results to be materially different than expectations.
