Abstract: Today, a key element of Open RAN networks is the possibility to offload a part of the computationally expensive processing to dedicated hardware. Several hardware manufacturers are currently bringing such hardware to the market. One example is Xilinx with its T1 telco accelerator card. This is an OpenAirInterface 5G NR End-to-End demo with COTS UE accelerated by offloading channel decoding on the Xilinx T1 card. In this demo, a video stream is sent from one UE and is played on the second UE.
