IDF Beijing Highlights Intelligence and Networking
This year’s Intel Developer Forum (IDF) in Beijing, China emphasized a push toward intelligent embedded systems and communication-networking technologies.
Recently, Intel hosted another successful developer forum in Beijing, China. That event showcased the company’s business momentum and strategic views in intelligent embedded systems and communication-networking technology.
After the keynotes, a reporter from China’s CCIDnet interviewed Ton Steenman (Tang Diman), VP of Intel’s Architecture Group and GM of the Intelligent Systems Group. In this conversation, they explored the company’s business momentum in and strategic views toward intelligent embedded systems. Steenman noted that Intel does not intend to establish a standard or monopoly in the intelligent-systems industry. Instead, the company will work with industry partners to improve the security, connectivity, and manageability of embedded devices.
Still, it was apparent that the company will play a key role in the development of intelligent interconnections, including hardware, software, and cooperation with ecosystem hardware and software partners.
Other interviews were conducted with Steve Price, Director of Marketing for the Communications Infrastructure Division, and Rajesh Gadiyar, Director of Embedded Architecture. Both speakers focused on the company’s technology advantages in the communications market. After the roundtables, attendant media were invited to visit the intelligence systems booths provided by Huawei and ZTE. (Related article: “Internet Minute Drives Packet Acceleration.”)
In terms of the networking-communication platform, Intel discussed the ease with which OEMs can integrate three traffic loads, including applications, control, and data-packet processing. The company claims that this integration will enhance product performance, lower costs, and accelerate time to market. In this way, Intel hopes to accelerate the transformation of the network system via virtualization, power management, and security.
