For years, people have been talking about the transformative power of ultrafast, high-bandwidth 5G telecommunications networks. Today, we’re at the dawn of this new era, and it’s time for business and IT leaders to lay the groundwork for capitalizing on the opportunities enabled by 5G and its complementary technologies, included Edge computing.
In this new era, 5G telecommunications services will be a critical enabler of the digital transformation of the enterprise. These emerging technologies provide the foundation for new products, services and business processes that will keep enterprises at the forefront of their industries.
These opportunities stem not just from the faster speeds and lower latency of 5G networks, but also from the way in which 5G is being implemented, which is different from previous generations of network technology. From the very edge of the network, 5G is being deployed on industry-standard servers with a software virtualization layer running on top of them.
