NVIDIA Aerial is a set of SDKs that enable GPU-accelerated, software defined 5G wireless RANs. Today, NVIDIA Aerial provides two critical SDKs: cuVNF and cuBB.

The NVIDIA cuVNF SDK provides optimized input/output (IO) and packer processing whereby 5G packets are directly sent to GPU memory from GPUDirect capable network interface cards.

The NVIDIA cuBB SDK provides a fully-offloaded 5G Signal Processing pipeline (L1 5G Phy) which delivers unprecedented throughput and efficiency by keeping all physical layer processing within the GPU’s high-performance memory.

The NVIDIA CloudXR SDK provides a way to stream graphics-intensive augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR) or mixed reality (MR), content often called XR over a radio signal (5G or Wifi) to one or more devices. The SDK also enables the streaming of OpenVR applications to a number of 5G-connected Android devices giving them greater access to high-powered servers as well as enabling access to graphics-intensive applications on relatively low-powered graphics hardware.

CUDA® is a parallel computing platform and programming model developed by NVIDIA for general computing on graphical processing units (GPUs). With CUDA, developers are able to dramatically speed up computing applications by harnessing the power of GPUs.

In GPU-accelerated applications, the sequential part of the workload runs on the CPU - which is optimized for single-threaded performance - while the compute intensive portion of the application runs on thousands of GPU cores in parallel.
