Intel eyes 5G networking with slew of software releases

Intel is releasing an array of software and hardware around 5G networking upgrades, with a view to developing infrastructure to the edge.

Its edge computing capability has received a boost, with new software toolkits aimed at accelerating time-to-market for customers and partners. New capabilities integrated into the Open Network Edge Services Software (OpenNESS) toolkit include support for standalone 5GNR and Enhanced Platform Awareness (EPA) deployments.

“This is giving customers the flexibility to easily deploy their choice of cloud-native edge microservices,” Intel said in a statement.

Intel is customising its OpenNESS experience kits to accelerate bespoke 5G deployments. OpenNESS complements Intel’s OpenVINO and Open Visual Cloud for edge computing development needs.

“As the industry makes the transition to 5G, we continue to see network infrastructure as the most significant opportunity, representing a $25 billion silicon opportunity by 2023,” said Navin Shenoy, executive vice president and general manager of Intel’s data platforms group.

“By offering customers the fastest and most effective path to design, deliver and deploy 5G solutions across core, edge and access, we are poised to expand our leading silicon position in this growing market.”

Hardware announcements included the launch of the new Intel Atom P5900, a 10nm system-on-chip (SoC) targeting wireless base stations, especially if they’re focusing on 5G. Intel expects some six million 5G base stations to be rolled out by 2024, and a new 2nd Gen Intel Xeon scalable processor.
