By 2015, the number of networked devices is predicted to be double the global population. Subsequently, the amount of data to be processed through the network and stored in the cloud is predicted to increase fourfold over the next 5 years. The network will need to be more efficient to process and deliver this staggering amount of video, voice and applications quickly and securely.
By converting from purpose-built solutions to an open platform with Intel architecture, telecom equipment manufacturers can reuse code and scale across product lines to achieve faster time-to-market and reduce costs. This flexible approach to building communications equipment allows manufacturers and service providers to cost-effectively manage the billions of intelligent devices predicted to connect through the network infrastructure.
