Intel unveils advances in IoT shaping next era of computing at Mobile World Congress 2014

24 February 2014 04:45:00

Intel Corporation President Renee James has unveiled the company's latest developments in computing and communications technologies at Mobile World Congress, Barcelona, Spain, 2014. The company advises its latest product portfolio is designed to compete in today's mobile ecosystem and shape the next era of computing, the Internet of Things (IoT).

At an Intel news conference, James introduced two Intel Atom processors, an LTE-Advanced communications platform, and announced multiyear agreements with Lenovo, ASUS and Foxconn to expand the availability of Intel-based mobile devices. With the explosion of mobile and connected devices in the IoT, she also highlighted how Intel is re-architecting the network infrastructure to reduce costs and make it easier for service providers to deliver improved customer experiences and new services by extracting business value from the vast amounts of data.

The continued growth of the mobile ecosystem depends on solving tough computing challenges -- unlocking data's potential while securely and reliably connecting billions of devices with leading edge computing and communications technologies," said James.

New Intel Atom Processors and LTE-Advanced Communications Platform
Intel launched its 2.13GHz Intel Atom processor Z3480 ("Merrifield") that offers a combination of fast, smart performance and long battery life for Android smartphones and tablets. The 64-bit ready SoC delivers compute performance for the mainstream and performance segments, and offers high performance in compute-intensive applications, web applications and light media editing performance.

The company advises, based on its 22nm Silvermont microarchitecture, the new processor also features a PowerVR Series 6 Graphics IP core from Imagination Technologies and is designed for simple pairing with the Intel XMM 7160 LTE platform. Merrifield is the first Intel Atom SoC to feature the new Intel Integrated Sensor Solution, which efficiently manages sensor data to keep applications smart and contextually aware even when the device is in a low-power state. Intel expects Merrifield-based devices from multiple OEMs to launch beginning in the second quarter.

James noted that all Intel Atom processors today support a 64-bit computing experience. "Sixty-four bit computing is moving from the desktop to the mobile device," James said. "Intel knows 64-bit computing, and we're the only company currently shipping 64-bit processors supporting multiple operating systems today, and capable of supporting 64-bit Android when it is available."

Intel has also delivered 64-bit kernels across operating systems, so customers who choose Intel Atom have a ready foundation for a 64-bit experience as the operating system and applications evolve.

The company also disclosed new details on its next-generation 64-bit Intel Atom processor, called "Moorefield" for devices expected to be available in the second half of the year. Building on the Merrifield feature set, Moorefield is claimed to add two additional Intel architecture (IA) cores for up to 2.3GHz of compute performance, an enhanced GPU and support for faster memory. This device is claimed to be optimised for the company’s 2014 LTE platform, the Intel XMM 7260, which the company also recently introduced.

The company points out that its XMM 7260 delivers good LTE-Advanced capabilities including carrier aggregation (supporting 23 CA combinations in a single chip), category six speeds and support for TDD LTE and TD-SCDMA, which expands the addressable market.

The company adds that as this product ranfe is now certified to run on 70 percent of LTE networks worldwide, the 7160 is expanding to connect a range of products spanning smartphones, tablets, 2 in 1s, Ultrabook systems and more.

"We are entering 2014 with a very competitive mobile portfolio spanning application processors and communications platforms that will only get stronger," said Hermann Eul, Vice President and General Manager of Intel's Mobile and Communications Group. "Our new Atom processors for Android smartphones and tablets offer leading 64-bit performance and battery life, and the new 7260 platform gives the ecosystem a compelling LTE-Advanced experience."

Securing the Mobile Experience and Expanding Availability of Android Apps on IA
James said Intel is leading the effort to guard today's mobile devices with unique data and device protection solutions from Intel Security and McAfee. Notably, Intel Device Protection Technology (Intel DPT) proactively protects consumers against malware and allows enterprise customers to separate personal and corporate data on Intel-based Android devices. Leading mobile device management providers including AirWatch, Citrix and McAfee will provide manageability extensions for devices with Intel DPT later this year. Intel expects tablets featuring Intel DPT will begin shipping later this year from leading OEMs including Dell.

James also revealed the features of the free, full-featured McAfee Mobile Security offering for Android devices now available. It includes enhanced protection features and, for the first time, unlocks security extensions for Intel-based mobile devices, making it the most comprehensive, free mobile solution for consumers on the market. Specifically, the free McAfee Mobile Security includes anti-virus, app protection, web protection, and call/SMS filter, in addition to anti-theft and contact back-up.

In an effort to accelerate development and availability of applications for Intel-based devices, James announced the Intel Integrated Native Developer Experience (Intel INDE), a beta productivity suite for devices running on both Android and Microsoft Windows. Intel also introduced the Intel System Studio 2014 for embedded and systems development and the Intel XDK developer tool for HTML5-based apps to enable developers to simplify and accelerate time-to-market development of innovative web and hybrid content mobile apps that run faster and better.

Expanded Customer Engagements to Accelerate Availability of Intel-Based Mobile Devices
Signaling the expanding availability of tablets and smartphones powered by Intel Atom processors and connected by Intel communications, James announced three new multiyear agreements with leading device manufacturers for Intel-based mobile devices.

Intel and Lenovo announced plans to introduce new Intel-based mobile devices this year. Both companies will dedicate engineering resources to deliver unique experiences across a variety of smartphone and tablet form factors spanning value to performance market segments. Lenovo also said it plans to incorporate Intel LTE connectivity into some Ultrabook and multimode designs.

"We have a strong history of working with Intel to bring compelling, computing experiences to market with products like our K900 smartphone, Yoga line of multimode laptops, MIIX 2 and ThinkPad 8 tablets," said Peter Hortensius, chief technology officer, Lenovo. "We look forward to an even stronger future together – delivering exciting mobile experiences from stylish smartphones to high-performance tablets with Intel inside."

Additionally, ASUS announced it will bring a full portfolio of Intel-based smartphones and tablets to market this year. The company recently introduced its ZenFone line of smartphones and the unique PadFone mini, both of which feature Intel processors and communications platforms. At Mobile World Congress, ASUS unveiled the ASUS Fonepad 7 LTE (ME3762CL) featuring an Intel Atom processor and Intel LTE connectivity.

Dell and Intel are expanding the long-standing collaboration between the two companies to include a range of innovative tablets that started with the introduction of the Dell Venue line in fall of last year. Intel-based products from Dell will span Android and Windows solutions.

Finally, Foxconn and Intel are teaming up to drive the broader, global availability of high-quality, affordable Intel-based Android tablets. Intel will provide Intel Atom processors and communications platforms for a range of Foxconn products, beginning with tablets, this year.

Transforming Wireless Networks, Fuelling Internet of Things
The explosion of mobile devices and rapid growth in the Internet of Things is driving transformation of the network infrastructure to meet increasing demand for more connectivity and real-time data. Intel is enabling this transformation by delivering standardized hardware and software that apply open standards and high-volume economics to help reduce costs, while accelerating the delivery of new services, capabilities and revenue models for service providers.

In an effort to bring the benefits of a standards-based approach to communications networks consistent with Intel's work in data centres and the cloud, James announced expanded relationships with Alcatel-Lucent and Cisco to accelerate network function virtualisation (NFV) and software defined network (SDN) technologies. By working to optimise these technologies on IA, service providers will be offered a faster and more flexible network that enables them to quickly scale new services.

James also highlighted numerous Intel-based trials with global operators including China Mobile, SK Telecom and Telefonica that are demonstrating the benefits of NFV and SDN for enabling personalised and contextually aware services, improving asset utilization, and simplifying installations and upgrades.
