ZTE Corporation has released the “Digital Infrastructure Technology Trends White Paper” that highlights the challenges and technological innovation pathways for the future development of digital infrastructure.
ZTE white paper based on own research
With the flourishing digital economy and the transformation of human society towards digitization and intelligence, efficient digital infrastructure has become the fundamental cornerstone for a digital society. Aligning with its positioning as a “Driver of the Digital Economy”, ZTE compiled this white paper based on its own research achievements in basic and cutting-edge technologies over the past few years and those of its partners.
Digital infrastructure comprises three key technical elements
The white paper proposes that digital infrastructure comprises three key technical elements – connectivity, computing power, and intelligence. However, the development of these three elements faces challenges such as the Shannon limit, the slowing down of Moore’s Law, and insufficient understanding of intelligence. To address these challenges, future technological innovations must focus on exploring the potential of existing technological paths and promoting the collaboration of multiple technologies and the optimization of system architectures.
Specifically, the white paper delves into technological trends across three key areas: connectivity, computing power, and intelligence.
Regarding connectivity, optimizing algorithms to approach the Shannon limit and expanding into new frequency bands while implementing extensive spatial multiplexing are essential. Additionally, the integration of optical and electrical components will help meet the high-bandwidth and low-latency requirements of high-performance AI computing.
Enhancing computing power relies on advancements in chip technology and architectural innovations such as integrated storage and computing, peer-to-peer systems, and the integration of computing and networking.
In the realm of intelligence, developing more energy-efficient chips and expanding the application of large model algorithms are crucial for enabling higher levels of intelligence, especially in areas like autonomous networks.
White paper conclusions
The white paper concludes by highlighting that ZTE has introduced the “Digital Nebula” solution and platform, which empowers various industries with a digital infrastructure that combines connectivity, computing power, and intelligence.
ZTE’s technological innovations are aligning with technological development trends, industry directions, and customer needs. ZTE will continue to work with industry partners to drive technological innovation in the digital infrastructure field, contributing to humanity’s transition towards a digital and intelligent society.
