As the race towards 5G gathers pace, technology giants are jostling for position as they look to be the ones providing the infrastructure needed for the next-generation networks.
Intel is one of the firms leading the way, and spoke to TechRadar Pro last week at CES 2019 in Las Vegas to outline just why it thinks it can be the power behind 5G.
For Intel, 5G represents “a true convergence between computing and communications,” Sandra Riviera, Intel’s senior vice president of the network platforms group, told us, noting that the company’s expertise in computing will stand it in good stead in the smart, IoT-connected world.
“Everywhere that you can have things and devices that are smart and connected…the opportunity to collect and aggregate that data, and turn that data into valuable insights that drive some positive action – we think we have a very valuable role to play,” she said.
“When you think about bringing this problem close to the compute machine, you now have the opportunity to think about this as a high-performance computing problem – and if it is a high-performance computing problem, we believe that Intel is best- placed to fix it.”
