Removing Roadblocks in Data Movement
The growth of cloud services, the Internet of Things, and resource-heavy workloads like deep learning and other types of artificial intelligence (AI) are placing enormous demand on computing systems. But performance is about more than compute. Interconnect plays a crucial role in eliminating the bottlenecks that slow data movement.
Intel’s investments in interconnect technology are among the broadest in the industry. With a complete view of the ecosystem—from silicon to data center to wireless—we give direction to the industry to build systems and networks that run faster. At the heart of our exploration is how data moves, from its creation in ones and zeros to the experience it ultimately enables.
Our innovation focuses on scalable, standards-based solutions that empower the ecosystem to get the most from cutting-edge processor capabilities. At the chip and processor level, we’re opening the door for novel system designs. And as data centers scale and evolve and 5G is deployed, our interconnect technologies will provide the foundation for the best possible experiences.
System on Chip (SoC) Interconnect
Our innovation in interconnect starts at the most foundational level: The SoC. Whether it’s within the silicon or on package, advanced interconnect means data moves faster and performance is more easily scaled. Intel’s approach to on-die interconnect and packaging unlocks new potential for design across a wide range of SoCs.
Moving data between different compute engines, memory, and I/O takes a specialized set of high-bandwidth and low-latency interconnect technologies. Our advances in processor interconnect make it possible for all these elements to come together and work as one.
Data Center Interconnect
A hyper-scale data center can have the footprint of several football fields. That creates unprecedented demand on fabric speeds and smart processing capabilities. Intel’s high-speed, long-distance interconnect technologies drive performance at large scale with computing at low latency.
The Internet of Things is driving massive growth in data generation. Wireless interconnect is the conduit connecting billions of people and things. For example, autonomous vehicles will create huge amounts of data every second, which must be captured, filtered, stored, and transmitted. We’re collaborating with technology partners to develop 5G and Wi-Fi 6 standards, enabling the next generation of wireless connectivity.
Intel is committed to developing and supporting interconnect standards for the benefit of the entire industry. Our products are built on these widely accepted standards to maximize interoperability.
