  1. Intel FPGA PAC N3000
  2. The Intel FPGA PAC N3000 is a reference FPGA and uses 4G/LTE or 5G forward error correction (FEC) as an example workload that accelerates the 5G or 4G/LTE RAN layer 1 (L1) base station network function. Flash the Intel FPGA PAC N3000 card with 4G/LTE or 5G bitstreams to support vRAN workloads.

  4. The Intel FPGA PAC N3000 is a full-duplex, 100 Gbps in-system, re-programmable acceleration card for multi-workload networking application acceleration.
  5.  
  6. When the Intel FPGA PAC N3000 is programmed with a 4G/LTE or 5G bitstream, it exposes the Single Root I/O Virtualization (SR-IOV) virtual function (VF) devices used to accelerate the FEC in the vRAN workload. To take advantage of this functionality for a cloud-native deployment, the physical function (PF) of the device must be bound to the pf-pci-stub driver to create several VFs. After the VFs are created, the VFs must be bound to a DPDK userspace driver (vfio) to allocate them to specific pods running the vRAN workload.

  8. Intel FPGA PAC N3000 support on OpenShift Container Platform depends on two Operators:

  11.  
  12. OpenNESS Operator for Wireless FEC Accelerators
