Intel does not want to be left behind in the construction of infrastructure necessary to correctly adopt 5G technology, so this Monday, February 24, it presented a series of chips and processors to keep up to date.
Navin Shenoy, executive vice president and general manager of the Intel Data Platforms Group, summarizes what the brand showed.
“As the industry makes the transition to 5G, we continue to see the network infrastructure as the most important opportunity, which represents a $ 25 billion silicon opportunity by 2023. By offering customers the fastest and most effective route to design, deliver and implement 5G solutions in the core, edge and access, we are prepared to expand our leading silicon position in this growing market. ”
What are the novelties presented by Intel
- Launch of the Intel Atom P5900 platform: the first 10 nanometer SoC based on Intel architecture for wireless base stations. It is designed to meet the critical needs of the 5G network, including high bandwidth and low latency to deliver what is required for 5G base stations today and in the future.
- New Intel Xeon second generation scalable processors: as a basis for the data platform infrastructure with more than 30 million units sold, Intel Xeon scalable processors have led the network transformation. This new line offers an average of 36% more performance. In addition, Intel Xeon Scalable helps protect data integrity and platform with enhanced hardware security and integrated encryption accelerators.
- Diamond Mesa, Intel's first next-generation structured ASIC for 5G network acceleration: is designed to complement Intel's incomparable processor and FPGA portfolio that offers the high performance and low latency required for 5G networks.
- Intel Ethernet 700 series network adapter with hardware-enhanced precision time protocol, the first Ethernet NIC optimized for 5G network, offering GPS-based cross-network service synchronization with Enhanced Precision Time Protocol (PTP). Latency requirements in 5G network implementations have challenged existing Ethernet technology, especially on perimeter servers, but maintaining accurate time synchronization across the network at a cost-effective price is a way to help address application latency. The Ethernet 700 series adapter increases the timing accuracy required for 5G networks through a combination of hardware and software improvements.
- New investments in software: Intel expands its state-of-the-art computer software toolkits to accelerate marketing time innovation for its customers and partners with new capabilities built into the Open Network Edge Services software toolkit (OpenNESS). OpenNESS now supports independent 5GNR and Enhanced Platform Awareness (EPA) implementations, giving customers the flexibility to easily implement their choice of cloud-based perimeter microservices.
