Mavenir and QCT collaborate with Intel to introduce the QuantaEdge EGX77B-1U short form factor server to support Open RAN deployments. The QuantaEdge EGX77B-1U is a short depth (300mm), low power consumption, highly expandable Multi-Access Edge Computing server featuring the 4th Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processor with Intel vRAN Boost and expandable memory for centralized and distributed Radio Access Networks that are ORAN, TIP, and NEBS GR63 Level 3 and GR3108 Class 2 compliant for 4G and 5G services. Detailed specifications of the EGX77B-1U can be found at both the Mavenir and QCT booths at Mobile World Congress.

Mavenir has been working with Intel diligently to harness and realise the benefits of Intel 4th Gen Xeon processors with Intel vRAN boost. The close collaboration has yielded extensive optimisations among the DU software, Intel?s processor, and the latest advancements in Intel?s FlexRAN reference software across 4G and 5G. These new capabilities and features will now be available on DU platforms, including QuantaEdge EGX77B-1U.

The companies will continue to collaborate and work to satisfy customer demands for a diversity of leading-edge performance and cost optimised options when it comes to the design, supply and deployment of open 5G network solutions.
