US companies Cisco and Intel will collaborate on the construction of three global 5G innovation centers in the US, Germany and Japan, which will serve as test beds to examine the use cases of this private mobile technology and test applications before bringing them to market.
As announced this Wednesday at the MWC world congress, which is being held these days in Barcelona (Spain), the innovation centers will be built in the North American state of California, the German city of Frankfurt and Tokyo.
Both companies reached an agreement to create computer architectures in various sectors of the Internet of Things (IoT) such as manufacturing or supply chains.
Thus, Cisco and Intel will work together on edge artificial intelligence frameworks and radio access network (RAN) solutions to support companies using private 5G technology for high-speed, low-latency, wide-area connections.
In addition, they will work with various 5G device manufacturers, RAN manufacturers, and enterprise application software publishers.
Cisco is a global company engaged primarily in the production, sale, maintenance, and consulting of telecommunications equipment. Intel is a manufacturer of integrated circuits and provides processors for computers.
