Integrated Device Technology has entered into a research project with Northeastern University to improve data-intensive analytics and caching in support of future 5G infrastructure development.

The goal of the year-long initiative is to find ways to help organizations better manage huge volumes of data. The researchers will look for new ways to use IDT technology to move and manage vast volumes of unstructured data—including video, voice, images and text—in both wireless and wireline access networks.

The agreement deepens the relationship started last year, when Northeastern expanded its regional strategy to San Jose, Calif., by embedding a hub campus in IDT's headquarters. Under the research partnership, three members of the Northeastern faculty and two PhD students will work with IDT engineers on the project, based at IDT's Open High-Performance Analytics and Computing (HPAC) Lab in Ottawa

"This type of research project is exactly the sort of thing that prompted Northeastern to team with IDT," said Philomena Mantella, senior vice president and CEO of the Northeastern University Global Network. "Our university is unique in our emphasis on experiential learning, so this type of engagement is an important step in advancing the integration of academic institutions and industry to solve today's most pressing economic issues."

The project is titled, "Distributed Low Latency Analytics and Caching Using Low Latency Fabric and Processing Nodes." Researchers will focus on "mobile edge" computing analytics.
