More objects are becoming connected, including phones, computers, cars, sensors, and so much more. 5G technology will enhance internet connectivity to support all these "things," as well as enable emerging IoT use cases.
The 5G transformation
The need for 5G networking is driven by three primary requirements - ubiquitous connection, low latency, and high bandwidth consumption. And now that 5G is becoming a necessity, communication service providers (CSPs) face the challenge of addressing the:
Internet users and connected objects such as autonomous vehicles, mobile devices, and machinery generate huge volumes of data. The only way to support these massive amounts of data is to scale the network and process some of the data at the edge. By applying "instant analytics" at the edge, the full value of data is captured in a cost efficient and secure manner.
“What we're excited to partner with HPE on is an AT&T multi-access edge compute platform running on HPE's Edgeline server infrastructure. This gives businesses a whole lot of flexibility to drive 5G into their environments.” - Robert Boyanovsky, Vice President Enterprise Mobility, AT&T
