5G and Edge Compute

Delivering a connected experience

5G has attained critical mass as the commercially available global deployments and rollouts are scaling at speed. Joining the bandwagon are the device manufacturers, who are expected to sell nearly half the handsets as 5G phones while steadily building the connectivity in industrial devices.

A billion subscribers across the U.S. and Europe are already on 5G networks. Therefore, the promise of a higher data speed and reduced latency must directly translate into attainable business objectives to unlock the true potential of 5G and Edge. 

As with 4G, 5G will have numerous impacts on businesses. It will disrupt business models across industries while creating new revenue sources beyond data and connectivity. It is estimated that $4.3 trillion enterprise value will be unlocked using 5G by 2026 across industries. So, enterprises must refactor connectivity as a foundational ingredient in their multiyear digital and cloud transformation plans. They also need to rethink application design and create a future-proof architecture to deliver a better customer experience, add new revenue opportunities, increase operational efficiency, and improve ROI.
