Intel today announced several new infrastructural installations meant to power the fifth generation of mobile networks. The timing of the launch coincides with improved analyst outlooks on the state of the wireless market as 5G alone is now projected to hit a $25 billion valuation within two years.
As for the newly announced products from Intel, the intent is to offer them as part of end-to-end 5G solutions as that’s where the real money is – selling ecosystems instead of small cell stations. The actual list of the newly introduced tech includes a standalone accelerator for virtualized radio access networks, a dynamic, scalable RAN, improved reference designs for Intel’s 5G software management suite, as well as new processors meant to fit a wide range of use cases.
Intel says this wave of releases should continue driving down the costs of 5G employment while simultaneously improving the granularity of customization options offered to its clients. To that effect, the company is introducing the Atom P5900. Previously known by its codename “Snow Ridge,” this happens to be the company’s most powerful base station processor to date. Verizon is already on board with the new products, as is Japanese wireless giant Rakuten Mobile and South Korea’s largest wireless carrier, SK Telecom.
