ARM-ing networks for IoT demands

Company aims to reduce power consumption and increase responsiveness.

By James Nunns

ARM has announced its vision for transforming network infrastructure in order to address the growing demands for content-rich mobile experiences and IoT based services.

The Intelligent Flexible Cloud environment aims to meet unyielding latency, power and size constraints based on scalable and integrated system on chips.

This will provide heterogeneous compute capabilities that are supported by a common layer of enable software and distributed network intelligence.

Charlene Marini, vice president, segment marketing, ARM, said: "The underlying network infrastructure that supports our mobile and connected world is undergoing a dramatic shift."

"The scalability of ARM® technology, combined with the networking systems expertise of our partners is increasing node intelligence and configurability, laying a new foundation for software-defined functions and applications."

"The move to the ARM architecture is underway, enabling new possibilities for an intelligent flexible cloud from device to data center."

Building on SDN and NFV technologies, combined with distributed intelligence, will enable applications to move out in the network to where data resides in order to reduce power consumption and increase responsiveness.
