Woman in Tech of the Week (4/5/17)
Sandra Rivera, Corporate Vice President and General Manager of the Network Platforms Group, Intel
The 5G revolution is on its way for the consumer; however, looking for that new device in a store will be futile because the industry is still building the next-generation infrastructure. The 5G revolution means that mobile technology will go beyond connecting your phone or laptop. The new world of mobility will power the Internet of Things and technology such as connected cars, smart cities, factories and things that we can’t even dream of yet.
“At Mobile World Congress 2017, we were talking a lot about what 5G will enable. All of that requires way more bandwidth, very low latency and a much better responsiveness at the endpoint near the device or the user,” said Sandra Rivera, corporate vice president and general manager of the Network Platforms Group at Intel. “All the innovations from a radio perspective will enable 5G, but of course, the rest of the infrastructure has to support it as well.
