What is it?
A baseband processor is a chip in a smartphone, tablet or other device that helps convert digital data into radio frequency signals (and vice-versa) which can then be transmitted over a RAN (Radio Access Network).
Why do you need it?
A baseband processor manages all the wireless radio functions of a cellular device. Without it, it would would be impossible for the device to connect to a wireless cellular network. Some important manufacturers of baseband processors include Broadcom, Icera, Intel, MediaTek and Qualcomm.
How is GIGABYTE helpful?
A baseband processor will include to be an integral part of any mobile device including in use of upcoming 5G networks. GIGABYTE’s server technology will also be essential in building out the infrastructure needed deploy 5G networks, with our Edge Server solutions ideal to be adopted as Baseband Units (that fulfill a similar function to a baseband processor but at the network infrastructure level) or as a MEC (Multi-access Edge Computing) server to support a range of 5G applications at the network edge.
Edge Computing: computing performed physically or logically as close as possible to where data is created and commands are executed. Offering excellent advantages in latency reduction for applications relying on real-time decision making.
