The 5th generation mobile network, 5G, is a new kind of platform that combines leading-edge technology inventions in 5G new radio (NR) air interface design, as well as in the 5G NextGen core network. Faster, low-latency, high-bandwidth 5G networks can connect anything, anywhere, with improved performance, efficiency, and cost.
As 5G continues to evolve, Arm-powered solutions are helping more companies take advantage of its potential—from the compute infrastructure through the network and to the device. The lightning-fast data speeds, super-low latencies, and more powerful and intelligent network services of 5G, unlock a new era with unbound potential for connected consumer devices and IoT. They’re also transforming data processing, transport, and storage networks.
One of the major requirements of 5G is Industrial IoT (IIoT) where mobile virtual network operators service private, vertical networks for factories, and so on. Key technologies, such as AR/VR, autonomous vehicles, smart cities, artificial intelligence and machine learning at the edge, can use 5G to gather fast streams of data and manage interactions with billions of devices remotely and cost effectively.
Arm-based compute solutions are helping to make all this possible.
Arm’s portfolio of products, augmented by its vast ecosystem of partners, helps meet the diverse range of computing needs and spans all key areas of 5G deployment—from the roll out of network infrastructure to processors within each device.
5G-Ready Infrastructure: Smarter and Distributed
5G will lead to compute being applied where needed, with intelligence distributed throughout the network and the ability to process vast quantities of data and run sophisticated machine learning algorithms at the infrastructure edge. When combined with 5G, Arm's high-performing and power-efficient compute solutions enable higher performance, lower latency, and seamless connectivity through a variety of infrastructure equipment designs.
As 5G promises faster speeds, hyper-capacity, and new viewing experiences, the way people interact with their devices will transform even further. Mixed reality, games, viewing experiences, and even shopping become more vivid and innovative. Arm's high-performing and power-efficient compute solutions enable mobile devices to handle the increased speed and throughput from the 5G. These solutions are set to accelerate innovation on 5G-ready devices while also substantially improving current usage, such as how we use our smartphones and PCs.
5G-Ready IoT: More Intelligence at the Edge
5G has been developed to meet the needs of industry, smart cities, autonomous driving and other use cases that need high density and low latency support. Data can be stored and processed closer to where it’s created, and where insight-driven actions are needed.
With the growing momentum in 5G infrastructure deployments, more and more opportunities are opening up for technologies such as artificial intelligence, IoT, and AR/VR. Talk to an Arm expert about the right solution for your 5G project or network.
