Telcos versus Hyperscalers in the Race for 5G Edge Computing

by Don Alusha | 3Q 2020 | IN-5884
5G edge computing provides enterprises and end verticals with the ability to distribute workloads across a wide geographic footprint. This enables local compute processing and single-digit millisecond latency that could not otherwise be obtained with Round-Trip Delays (RTD) associated with traffic to and from public cloud and data center back ends. In addition, the ubiquity and reliability of 5G edge computing serves as the bedrock for continuous operations. In other words, enterprises can operate in a diverse—but not necessarily interconnected—ecosystem while still running production processes and operations in a seamless fashion. Thirdly, 5G edge computing bodes well for local data processing and analytics. This is a fitting value proposition, particularly when we consider that 75% of data in the future will come from edge deployments and terminals. Further, as much as 50% of that data will be processed locally for local decision making and Artificial Intelligence (AI) inference.
