Impending 5G networks are expected to enable new services and pave the way for personalized user configuration and new growth from industrial and enterprise verticals. A key difference between 5G and previous network generations lies in its need to tightly integrate applications at the service layer with structured/unstructured data repositories. This is expected to deliver significant value for Mobile Service Providers (MSPs) in building data-driven services, but first they ought to rethink how they run their operations and how to modify their data strategies accordingly. 5G is inherently a decentralized approach that is expected to generate new and vast volumes of data from heterogeneous and multiple vendor equipment. Ericsson’s newly launched solution Edge Gravity, for example, is a commercial offering that offers a global and decentralized 5G edge cloud platform. The organizational form and data models that would best commercialize 5G edge offerings need to factor in a proximate pool of connected data (and metadata).
