The world is ready for 5G. Are you?

Article | June 3, 2021

At last, the wait for 5G is nearly over. As this map shows, coverage is widespread across much of the U.S., in 24 EU countries, and in pockets around the globe. The new wireless standard is worth the wait. Compared to 4G, the new wireless standard can move more data from the edge, with less latency. And connect many more users and devices—an important development given that the IDC estimates 152,000 new Internet of Things (IoT) devices per minute by 2025. Put it together, and 5G is a game-changing backhaul for public networks. (Wi-Fi 6, often mentioned in the same breath as 5G, is generally used for private WANs.

How to build your IT infrastructure for 5G-enabled edge computing

Article | February 26, 2020

The global 5G-enabled edge computing market is growing rapidly, fueled by major technology changes that are disrupting the traditional networking industry. By 2025, this market is expected to exceed $50 billion. 5G has the potential to deliver a new generation of services, thanks to higher data rates and ultra-low latency. To take advantage of this potential, communications service providers are looking to move data processing and compute power closer to the end user — closer to the edge. While the digital boom provides many opportunities for IT leaders, it comes with challenges: a growing number of smart devices, the need for faster processing and increased pressure on enterprise networks. To harness all this potential power, organizations need to modernize their networks to effectively consume these new services at the edge. Some key trends are empowering this shift toward the 5G-enabled edge.
