via Data Center Knowledge
Intel is taking its Xeon processor family to the edge with this week's introduction of Xeon D-2100, a system-on-chip (SoC) processor designed to meet the needs of edge applications as well as data center and network applications constrained by space and power.

via Data Center Knowledge
There’s no doubt that 5G will affect all parts of the network – from end users, to both man and machine (things) to data centers, and everything in between. In fact, according to IHS Economics and IHS Technology’s report from 2017, 5G is expected to lay the groundwork for technologies such as making self-driving cars more responsive to traffic changes or IoT sensors becoming more intuitive and integrated into smart buildings and smart cities. The same report finds that it has the potential to create a staggering $12.2 trillion in global economic output by 2035. To put that number in perspective, it “is nearly equivalent to U.S. consumer spending in 2016 and more than the combined spending by consumers in China, Japan, Germany, the United Kingdom, and France in 2016.”
