The AWS Snowcone is a small form factor server that was originally meant for data transport to AWS data centers. However it can also be used as a small device running compute workloads. We wanted to evaluate the performance of the Snowcone as it is a quite intriguing piece of technology which we might want to use as a an on-premise UPF (User Plane Function) in low-throughput 5G networks (think IoT or Proof of Concept deployments).

If that headline was slightly incomprehensible to you, it means that we’ve now made it possible to call pretty much anyone from a 5G-enabled handset that is connected to the Working Group Two 5G core via a 5G antenna. To be clear, we’re not talking about making a “first” Voice over New Radio (VoNR) call (those took place way back in 2021), but about making VoNR calls from a set of major commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) 5G devices to other mobile and fixed handsets.
