In the next few years, 5G will fundamentally transform our lives, bringing us a society and environment where everything is smarter and more connected. From smart cities to intelligent wind farms, agriculture, and hospitals, the Internet of Things and connected infrastructures will generate zettabytes of data from an estimated 50 billion devices—more than there are people on earth. Intel is here to help you connect and make sense of it all.
This new era is enabling rapidly developing businesses, including self-driving cars, drone delivery, the Internet of Things, and virtual reality. 5G will help make these industries a reality.
Whether through the medical advances of a networked healthcare system, reduced car accidents, or smarter water management, 5G will improve the lives of people around the world.
5G creates new efficiencies for conducting business and optimizing performance, offering service providers a way to incorporate new data-oriented network elements to increase profits and improve their competitive advantage.
As a leader in wireless, computing, and cloud, Intel is driving the development of technologies and collaborating on the rapid definition of standards that will help define the 5G market. This requires partnering with tier one service providers, global telecom equipment manufacturers, and other industry leaders, while serving as an essential voice in standards bodies such as 3GPP and IEEE. From FPGAs to smart devices and software-defined data centers, Intel provides unmatched scale, innovation, and expertise.
To unlock the potential of 5G, businesses will need to transform their network to be 5G ready. At the center of that transformation is the broad-scale deployment of Network Function Virtualization (NFV) and Software-Defined Networking (SDN) technologies. Intel is helping lead the industry into the future of 5G—from device to data center—with the right architecture.
IoT will leverage 5G like no other technology. Connecting billions of “things” that were never connected before is leading to new insights that translate into meaningful change for individuals and businesses. Intel helps bring the potential of IoT to life by providing solutions that connect, secure, and manage valuable data.
5G is defined by a heterogeneous network of wireless technologies—mmWave, Wi-Fi, LTE-Advanced, and others—combined with a virtualized core and intelligent edge services. This not only increases capacity, it enables even the smallest devices to perform heavy computational tasks by bringing the cloud to the edge of the network.
