Intel Tries to Penetrate the Growing Mobile Industry

Intel Tries to Penetrate the Growing Mobile Industry

Mobile networks today

In the current setting, mobile phone networks utilize radio waves to establish connections between handsets and base stations. In the new base stations using Inter server chips, data could be stored in computers. This measure would make transmission of information much faster. It would also facilitate faster freeing of space so that connectivity of users to base stations would be enhanced.
The company now hopes it could take advantage of the fast growth in demand for small cells. Those are smaller versions of base stations that it is initially targeting for now. However, one of the possible impediments to those hopes is the measure of some wireless networks to slow down on costs as they try to recoup past investments in 4G networks.Intel must have finally realized that growth is geared towards the mobile industry these days. The biggest manufacturer of semiconductors in the world has now integrated its server chips into machines that would help improve processing of smartphone data in mobile networks.This effort is clearly a strategy to aim for a huge slice of the growing digital marketplace.
The giant company has revealed that it is now set to conduct a test with South Korea’s SK Telecom Co and Nokia Siemens Networks to see if its server chips would work well when deployed in wireless networks’ base stations. Intel hopes it could prove that its chips could significantly help ease congestion brought about by robust demand for data services.
This effort could be an attempt to possibly offset the effects of popular mobile devices on the dwindling PC market. If the test runs smoothly, this may mark the shift of the company’s focus from PCs to mobile devices and networks. It is also hopeful that the measure would generate several hundreds of dollars of income opportunities for the company.
Server chips
The chips are expected to help smart base stations ease up from the strain brought about by increasing network activities. Around the world, mobile data traffic is expected to jump by up to 13 times from 2012 to 2017. Intel wants to position itself strategically in time for this overwhelming growth.
To date, Intel accounts for just 1% of market share for smartphone processors.Intel is reportedly trying to convince potential clients that its chips could help build new mobile equipments. Those possible customers include Ericsson, Nokia Siemens, and Huawei Technologies.
