IoT networks tip growth spurt for high performance processors

This leads to a broadly divergent perspective of how core architecture ecosystems dependent upon the specific subset of the market. For large scale core equipment, the highest performing x86 cores still dominates the market followed closely by Power core architecture. At the opposite extreme in field and edge equipment, especially in the wireless markets where suppliers may support both access points and the devices connecting to them, Advanced RISC Machine (ARM) core architecture plays a more dominant role followed by Imagination Technology's MIPS core architecture. Many suppliers may target only one aspect of the market and find their perceptions of the serviceable market are not aligned with the total market.

As the PC and smartphone markets begin to stagnate, the computer and applications-processor suppliers are aggressively looking for adjacent markets. It is clear that the growing trends toward cloud computing, IoT and increased over-the-top media consumption will continue to provide opportunities for network communications infrastructure demanding high-performance processors as one alternative market for growth. The short-term economic growth is sluggish and infrastructure represents high capital expense creating a short-term barrier, but the long-term opportunity is tremendous. By the end of the decade investment in communications infrastructure is expected to rebound dramatically with sustained growth throughout the next decade.
