Intel Paves Way for Communications Service Providers (CSPs) to Quickly Monetize 5G with New Infrastructure Reference Design

12 June 2018

Intel recently announced it has collaborated on a new 5G infrastructure reference design that enables Communications Service Providers (CSPs) to quickly deploy new revenue-producing services. Utilizing pre-integrated and commercially available components from various partners, the Intel® 5G infrastructure reference design serves as a blueprint for customers to rapidly deploy a software-defined, cloud-enabled, agile 5G-ready network that supports use cases including virtual, merged and augmented reality, smart retail, industrial automation, the Internet of Things, and cloud gaming.

As the communications industry moves toward 5G, Intel provides this reference design for the supply chain of integrators, ODMs, OEMs, TEMs, and ISVs, allowing them to develop commercial solutions for deployment by CSPs on an open architecture that is scalable and flexible. The set of pre-integrated solutions includes Mavenir's virtualized evolved packet core (vEPC).
