"Network transformation is critical to unleash the possibilities of 5G and maximize the rise of the edge to create new and better business outcomes for our customers across the globe. As the leading network silicon provider, we have been driving this shift to virtualizing the core to access to edge, and implementing edge computing capabilities with our decade of experience, to power our society's digital revolution."
Why It Matters: Operators desire a more agile, flexible infrastructure to unleash the full possibilities of 5G and edge as they address increased network demands from more connected devices. At the same time, the digitalization of our world is creating new opportunities to use the potential of 5G, edge, artificial intelligence (AI) and cloud to reshape industries ranging from manufacturing to retail, healthcare, education and more. According to a recent survey of 511 information technology decision-makers, 78% believe 5G technology is crucial to keep pace with innovation.
These decision-makers also revealed that they view edge as one of the top three use cases for 5G in the next two years. With Intel's expansive portfolio delivering feature-rich silicon and optimized software solutions, the company can tap into an estimated $65 billion edge silicon opportunity by 2025. Intel technology is already deployed in over 35,000 end customer edge implementations.
About Network Deployments and Innovations: Operators like Deutsche Telekom (News - Alert), Dish Wireless and Reliance Jio are transforming networks and relying on Intel technology. Their work demonstrates how Intel's experience and proven technology help them create innovative solutions to deliver on their vision.
About Maximizing Data at the Edge: By 2023, it is expected that 75% of data will be created outside of the data center - at the edge, in factories, in hospitals, in retail stores and across cities. Developers want to converge various capabilities at the edge, such as AI, analytics, media and networking. Intel offers a diverse edge-ready product portfolio that icludes feature-rich silicon including next-gen Intel® Xeon® D processors, open and optimized software, and hundreds of preconfigured and integrated edge-to-cloud solutions delivered through a global partner ecosystem.
About Foundational Technology: Intel offers the most complete portfolio of network solutions for the industry to build on, with a full suite of processors, accelerators, Ethernet adapters, memory, software toolkits and solution blueprints. The company is expanding its leadership product portfolio to help customers achieve the right total cost of ownership and accelerate their time to market.
