5G and vRAN among the targets for Intel’s integrated “data-centric” platform

At February’s Mobile World Congress, a notable trend was for the major chip providers to be assembling end-to-end portfolios that would enable them to address the entire 5G network from switch-chips in the transport domain, to processors and FPGAs to support virtualized RAN and core, to base station and edge computing platforms. At that show, Intel launched a base station system-on-chip (SoC) and talked up a silicon family that it has been assembling for some years, through inhouse development and acquisitions like those of Altera and LSI Networking. Last week, the chip giant held its own event, entitled the Data-centric Innovation Day, at which it showed off new Xeon processors, as well as the AgileX platform, which provides a flexible…
