5G Set to Create Vast Data Volumes


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).
