Intel wants to be your one-stop shop for 5G

Intel VP tells us that “5G runs on Intel”

As the race towards 5G gathers pace, technology giants are jostling for position as they look to be the ones providing the infrastructure needed for the next-generation networks.

Intel is one of the firms leading the way, and spoke to TechRadar Pro last week at CES 2019 in Las Vegas to outline just why it thinks it can be the power behind 5G.

For Intel, 5G represents “a true convergence between computing and communications,” Sandra Rivera, Intel’s senior vice president of the network platforms group, told us, noting that the company’s expertise in computing will stand it in good stead in the smart, IoT-connected world.

“Everywhere that you can have things and devices that are smart and connected…the opportunity to collect and aggregate that data, and turn that data into valuable insights that drive some positive action – we think we have a very valuable role to play,” she said.
