Effnet 5G gNB-CU validated using VIAVI TeraVM and power monitoring for Red Hat OpenShift for energy efficient computing

Luleå 2024-06-25 – Effnet, a leading provider of containerized 5G RAN software and 5G protocol stack for terminals as well as Header Compression software, today announces its successful participation in interoperability testing together with VIAVI and Red Hat.

Effnet 5G gNB-CU is a scalable, disaggregated (gNB-CU CP and gNB-CU UP), containerized and platform agnostic software solution. Its support for Red Hat OpenShift, the industry’s leading hybrid cloud application platform powered by Kubernetes, provides the telco industry with another trusted option to consider when building high-performance network functions in containerized environments.

Effnet 5G gNB-CU, running on Red Hat OpenShift, was validated for conformance and interoperability using VIAVI TeraVM, a virtualized application emulation and security performance platform, used in 5G, Open RAN, RIC testing and training, and cybersecurity testing. The performance tests were monitored for energy-related system stats with power monitoring for Red Hat OpenShift, based on Kepler or Kubernetes-based Efficient Power Level Exporter, an open source project co-founded by Red Hat’s emerging technologies group.

The successful tests reaffirm Effnet’s commitment to advancing open standards, developing sustainable and energy-efficient computing solutions and fostering a collaborative and efficient 5G landscape.
