This section can be skipped if you want to use the steps in Part 4 – Set up Aerial with OAI gNB and CN5G (Optional) instead.

In the latest version of SDKM the user can choose to install directly on the target machine or from a remote machine. SDKM uses ssh to connect to the server where it installs the gNB.

The installation guide for cuBB is located in the NVIDIA Developer Zone - Aerial SDK.
