In this video, Greg Wahl from Advantech presents: Transforming Private 5G Networks.

The high bandwidth and low latency of 5G  is truly transformational for the enterprise. Private 5G networks will enable business to offer new services through connected devices on the Edge and entirely new revenue streams.

Advantech Networks & Communications Group is driving innovation in next-generation network solutions with their High Performance Servers. The company provides business critical hardware to the world’s leading telecom and networking equipment manufacturers with both standard and customized products. Our High Performance Servers are highly configurable platforms designed to balance the best in x86 server-class processing performance with maximum I/O and offload density. The systems are cost effective, highly available and optimized to meet next generation networking and media processing needs.

In addition to innovation in air interface technologies and architecture extensions, 5G will also need a new generation of network computing platforms to run the emerging software defined infrastructure, one that provides greater topology flexibility, essential to deliver on the promises of high availability, high coverage, low latency and high bandwidth connections. This will open up new parallel industry opportunities through dedicated 5G network slices reserved for specific industries dedicated to video traffic, augmented reality, IoT, connected cars etc. 5G unlocks many new doors and one of the keys to its enablement lies in the elasticity and flexibility of the underlying infrastructure.

Advantech’s Networks and Communication Group has been both an innovator and trusted enabling partner in the telecommunications and network security markets for over a decade, designing and manufacturing products for OEMs that accelerate their network platform evolution and time to market,” said Advantech Vice President of Networks & Communications Group, Ween Niu. “In the new IP Infrastructure era, we will be expanding our expertise in Software Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Function Virtualization (NFV), two of the essential conduits to 5G infrastructure agility making networks easier to install, secure, automate and manage in a cloud-based infrastructure.”

Advantech’s corporate vision is to enable an intelligent planet. The company is a global leader in the fields of IoT intelligent systems and embedded platforms. To embrace the trends of IoT, big data, and artificial intelligence, Advantech promotes IoT hardware and software solutions with the Edge Intelligence WISE-PaaS core to assist business partners and clients in connecting their industrial chains. Advantech is also working with business partners to co-create business ecosystems that accelerate the goal of industrial intelligence.
