Intel joins Verizon 5G Technology Forum

News: Verizon intends to launch field technology trials next year.

By CBR Staff Writer

Intel has partnered with Verizon in its efforts to advance the development of 5G next generation wireless technology.

Intel will help optimise end-to-end mobile broadband and Internet of Things (IoT) device architectures to accelerate the development of 5G.

The company will work in Verizon’s 5G sandbox environments in San Francisco and Waltham, Massachusetts innovation centres.

Intel is also developing its own 5G test beds in Oregon, California and other locations.

The company is focusing on mobile broadband, IoT 5G devices, mm-wave dual connectivity technology, virtualised radio access network elements supporting MIMO, ultra-low latency response, high frequency small cells, and mobile edge computing.

Verizon and Intel will also work on network transformation initiatives that optimise the existing network and build next generation network architecture.

Intel is also working with Verizon on SDN Network Evolution for achieving business and technical benefits of a network development based on virtualisation and cloud computing.
