Intel has plans to exhibit the 5G wireless networking technology during the upcoming 2018 Winter Olympics in PeyeongChang, South Korea, in February. The 5g network will demonstrate it’s optimal wireless data transfer rate of gigabits per second, based on the pending 5G wireless standard.
That also means that fans and supporters at this venue attending the Winter Olympics will be able to post all of the all videos and selfies they want to the internet irrespective of their sizes or volume. 5G network connection promises to disrupt wired Internet connections such as cable TV and modem service, or wired phone line services. My hope for 5G: I’ll be happy if our family can play games and watch Netflix on a wireless network without driving us bankrupt or slowing down our data network to a crawl, that will be really cool.
“As mobility evolves beyond the smartphone, 5G is becoming one of the most impactful technology innovation likely to be common in the nearest future,” said Sandra Rivera, senior vice president and general manager of the network platforms Group at Intel, in a blog post. “It will bring seamless connectivity, massive computing capabilities and rapid access to the cloud together for the first time.”
Intel makes one of the sponsors of the Winter Olympics in North Korea, and it is also working with South Korea’s KT to deliver a broad-scale 5G network for the duration of the games. That will require advances in networking, client technology, and the cloud. Beyond bringing wireless broadband at gigabit-plus speeds, 5G also promises ultra-low latency, meaning there are very short delays in interactions for things like games and livestreamed content.
Intel and KT will deliver a 5G showcase in Gangneung Olympic Park, in Gwanghwamoon, Seoul and at other Olympic venues across Korea. Intel is competing with rivals such as Qualcomm to create chips for 5G services.
