SoftBank Corp. Successfully Verifies GPU-based vRAN on Actual Machines
~SoftBank verifies Mavenir’s vRAN system at its “AI-on-5G Lab.” built in collaboration with NVIDIA~



SoftBank announced, in collaboration with NVIDIA Corporation (“NVIDIA”) and Mavenir Systems, Inc. (“Mavenir”), it succeeded in End-to-End (E2E) communication from user equipment to image processing multi-access edge computing (MEC) applications via virtualized radio access network (vRAN) components using Graphic Processing Units (GPUs) in actual machines. The announcement follows SoftBank’s opening of its research facility called “AI-on-5G Lab.” in 2022, where various solutions, including AI technology, can be demonstrated and applied to the business domain in an environment where vRAN and MEC are integrated. SoftBank, NVIDIA and Mavenir also achieved person detection using the AI real-time solution on a server that adopts the same architecture with vRAN.
