All photonics network infrastructure is coming. 5G and the edge will innovate together. Telcos need to future proof their 5G investments. The internet is turning 50. And 5G will be the mobile generation enterprises have dreamed of.
There’s a new global forum on the block, and it’s here to accelerate the adoption of an all photonics network infrastructure to meet our future data needs. The Innovative Optical and Wireless Network Global Forum brings together Intel, Sony, and Nippon Telegraph and Telephone Corporation to facilitate next-gen communications.
We bet you can’t come up with two technology trends more compelling and whose potential for innovation is more intertwined than 5G and the edge. And—surprise, surprise—both of these trends are affecting network architectural development. A recent paper from 5G Americas and Intel explores what exactly this means.
If telcos want to future proof their 5G investments, they’ll need to have a clear migration path to cloud native. That’s according to a recent SDN NFV World Congress panel of experts, including Intel’s Sr. Director of Edge Services & Industry Enabling, Renu Navale.
Happy birthday, The Internet! You’ve come pretty far in the past 50 years. Genevieve Bell, senior fellow at Intel, points out the internet really started to change our lives around the time Google became a verb. And it will bring many more changes, like pervasive connectivity and maybe brain-computer interfaces.
Sorry people addicted to your smartphones (so ... everyone), 5G isn’t all about you. Turns out it could be a much bigger deal for enterprises than it will be for consumers, according to a report from GSMA Intelligence. That means telcos will be rushing to meet the needs of these enterprise customers.
