  • INTC: Intel Focuses On 5G Infrastructure
    • Comment – author points to three 5G announcements that they see as positive for INTC: a) network edge Si / Atom – think what’s on the towers; b) Xeons underneath the big NFV trend and c) wired adapter to meet 5G needs
      • My thoughts based on my previous knowledge – a)Atom on the edge – hard to see how they compete on price vs ARM – mrvl; b) not much new NFV play and c) adapter I am not smart enough to even estimate if this would move revenue / margin needle (but I assume WAY off)
      • I commented on article: Of the three elements highlighted- edge, nfv, and adapters … nfv is probably in everybody’s baseline, the adapter I’m clueless… but the edge with atom, price will matter imho and I remember too well the mobile battle with ARM … I wave yellow caution flag on that one – unless remote Management or security is uniquely tied to Si”
    • Conclusion: does not change my investment thesis wrt INTC
