China Unicom and Cavium will work together to trial the system in live locations to optimize the vBBU performance and core network provisioning.
"We are very excited to collaborate with China Unicom in this key milestone in the M-CORD initiative. A homogenous hardware architecture fully optimized for NFV and 5G functions is a key pre-requisite for field deployments," said Raj Singh Vice President & General Manager of the Network & Communication Group at Cavium. "This differentiated and highly scalable implementation will allow operators such as China Unicom to rapidly explore and implement next generation network topologies."
"Our collaboration with Cavium has shown real progress and we are looking forward to trying the new ThunderX based M-CORD and virtualized RAN implementation in our network," said Dr. Tang Xiongyan, CTO of Network Technology Research Institute, China Unicom. "We believe that our partnership will provide significant benefits to both parties."
