I caught up with Cristina Rodriguez, Vice President in the Data Center Group and General Manager of the Wireless Access Network Division at Intel Corporation, to talk about Wireless Networking, 5G, Radio Access Networks ( RAN ) and Edge Infrastructure, current trends, and the latest product announcements from Intel.
We open the conversation with Intel’s amazing response world wide, to the COVID19 global pandemic, and the amazing funding of social programmes and opening up their portfolio of intellectual property to researchers, scientists & students.
Cristina shares key insights into Intel’s recently announced 2nd generation Intel Xeon Scalable processor, and the Atom P5900 System on Chip (SoC), and a the latest news from within Intel’s Data Center Group and Wireless Access Network division.
We cover a broad range of key happenings from within Intel and in particular the amazing investments they are making and work they have been doing to help drive and lead significant innovation by telcos, carriers, and enterprise around the world, with the shift to Software Defined Infrastructure (SDI), Software Defined Networks (SDN) and Network Function Virtualisation (NFV).
Latest intel Products and News on Intel Corporation
Cristina also shares key insights into what is Intel is currently doing to bring the full value of 5G to its product portfolio, from data centers and public cloud, through to networks and out to the edge.
One amazing statistic Cristina shares is that analysts have forecasted that by 2024 more than 80% of deployed solutions will be virtualised, as Telcos and carriers / service providers (CSP’s ) make the pivot to adopting cloud models for their core platforms, from Business Support Systems (BSS) through to Operational Support Systems (OSS) and the Packet Core, leveraging agile development & deployment, CI/CD, automation, orchestration, and containerised “cloud native” design principals.
Cristina give us a wonderful introduction to the new Intel Atom P5900 System on Chip (SoC), and how the Atom P5900 SoC plays into the Edge Networking & Edge Computing space, particularly what it now makes possible in the area of Radio Access Network (RAN) transformation.
We look at the challenges being faced by Telco’s & CSP’s who are under increasing pressure to achieve Reduced Time to Market & Reduced time to ROI as they transform their existing legacy 3G and current 4G and LTE infrastructure while deploying new environments to support 5G.
Cristina also provides us with a high-level overview of key trends he is seeing around 5G & Radio Access Networks – and a range of macro trends & her take on the current state of the industry from his unique industry perspective.
Tune in now for all of these amazing topics and more.
