In this Intel Chip Chat audio podcast with Allyson Klein: Cristina Rodriguez, Vice President for the Data Platforms Group and General Manager for the Wireless Access Network Division for Intel, joins Chip Chat to update on the evolution of compute infrastructure for the network edge. Rodriguez leads Intel’s efforts to provide innovative Wireless Access Network solutions, including those for 5G. 5G deployments are a significant area of focus for the communications industry, with Gartner predicting greater than $4 billion in 5G infrastructure spending in 2020 alone.

In this interview, Rodriguez and host Allyson Klein dive into Intel’s strategy for enabling new edge and 5G use cases. Rodriguez notes that while 5G and the big data explosion enable new opportunities for service providers, these opportunities often depend on low latency and high reliability in the wireless network. This means moving more compute closer to the edge, where the data is being generated, and harnessing virtualization and cloud architectures throughout the network, from data center to core to edge.

Rodriguez highlights recent successful deployments, including Corning’s strategic collaboration with Intel to scale 5G in-building network solutions and New Jersey’s American Dream shopping and entertainment complex, an outdoor deployment powered by JMA Wireless XRAN and Intel Xeon Scalable processors which is one of the first FCC-authorized commercial deployments using the new Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS) spectrum at 3.5 GHz.

Finally, Rodriguez reviews Intel’s portfolio of hardware and software solutions for the edge, including the upcoming Snow Ridge solution for 5G radio access networks. First announced with Intel’s customers Ericsson and ZTE at Mobile World Congress 2019, Snow Ridge is a 10nm multi-core system on a chip (SoC) with integrated network acceleration that extends Intel architecture into wireless base stations for 5G and edge compute. Intel’s base station partners are already developing solutions leveraging this leading part, which will launch at MWC 2020.
