The world is in the midst of a dramatic transformation from isolated systems to Internet-enabled devices that can network and communicate with each other and the cloud.
Commonly referred to as the Internet of Things (IoT), this new reality is being driven by the convergence of increasingly connected devices, cloud economics for compute and data, and the acceleration of big data analytics.
The shift is generating unprecedented opportunities that can be seized right now by companies to develop new services, enhance productivity and efficiency, improve real-time decision making, solve critical problems, and develop new and innovative user experiences.
To address the market for IoT, Intel is focusing on accelerating the development of intelligent devices, systems of systems, and end-to-end analytics to drive business transformation.
An end-to-end strategy requires making devices more intelligent and secure to reliably filter and manage data locally. Intel offers a scalable roadmap of products to power the edge, from power-efficient Quark processors to high-performance Intel® Xeon® processors.
Quark processor X1000
The new low-power, small-core Quark processor X1000 product family will enable Intel to extend into new and rapidly growing IoT market segments. Its processor core is a 32-bit, single-core, single-thread Intel® Pentium® instruction set architecture (ISA)-compatible CPU operating at speeds up to 400MHz.
Intel® Atom™ processor E3800
The new Intel® Atom™ processor E3800 product family features enhanced media and graphics performance, error correcting code (ECC), industrial temperature range, built-in security, and integrated image signal processing. These features help reduce time-to-market, while providing power-efficient performance to accelerate data intensive applications and reduce energy consumption. Learn more >
Connectivity is imperative to realizing the power of IoT. The opportunities are drawn directly from the insights made possible when systems of intelligent devices are connected to each other or the network. However, as more than 85 percent of existing devices are based on legacy systems, solutions need to address interoperability as an interim step to avoid replacing all existing infrastructure.
Intel will address these challenges with a new family of intelligent gateways that connect legacy systems and provide common interfaces and seamless communication between devices and the cloud targeting industrial, energy and transportation infrastructure. This system of systems helps ensure that the data generated by devices and existing infrastructure can be shared securely between the cloud and intelligent devices for analysis.
The new family of intelligent gateways provides integrated and pre-validated hardware and software, including McAfee Embedded Control* and the Wind River Intelligent Device Platform*, to help develop, prototype, and deploy application services much quicker so companies can focus on adding new value-added services. The intelligent gateway products enable users to securely aggregate, share, and filter data from the edge to the cloud. Target usage models include monitoring high-value industrial assets, facilitating manufacturing automation, energy grid automation, and commercial fleet monitoring.
The enormous volumes of data generated and shared across intelligent devices and systems are analyzed, and the untapped value extracted to serve the business. This enables you to better realize the potential to enrich lives through new scientific discoveries, business models, and consumer experiences.
Intel is delivering a comprehensive portfolio of hardware and software products designed to unlock the data intelligence from the device through the network to the cloud. By developing horizontal building blocks for vertical end-to-end analytics, as well as distributed analytics for edge systems and the datacenter, Intel is enabling companies to turn big data into actionable information.
