The 5G Edge: Powering Innovative Services and Experiences

We are witnessing the emergence of another transformational technology with the arrival of 5G and the promise of increased speeds of data transmission. We are also witnessing the consumerization of industrial, commercial, and consumer IoT devices that create and need access to real-time data at the edge.

Combined, 5G and edge computing provide technology and support for a new wave of applications from Augmented Reality (AR), to smart cities, to autonomous vehicles and beyond. Communication Service Providers (CoSPs) must collectively adapt to this change, transforming both infrastructure and business models to support their enterprise and commercial customer base.

Our newest research report, The 5G Edge: Powering Innovative Services and Experiences — done in partnership with Intel — offers a look into how CoSPs perceive their customers’ perspectives on the major edge and 5G trends, their own strategic priorities in meeting ongoing and emerging customer demands, and how the market is likely to evolve over the coming years. We share the findings of our recent study on the subject informed by the opinions of 500 global business and technology professionals with a strong focus on network engineers and architects.

Our study shows that edge computing has the potential to reshape how the world engages and behaves as individuals, organizations, and businesses. It’s no surprise then that CoSPs are turning to 5G to strengthen their portfolios to fulfill the urgent demand enterprises have.

In this report you’ll learn:

  • Customers’ perceptions of 5G edge technology
  • Drivers of 5G edge adoption
  • Opportunities for edge monetization
  • Areas of growth for 5G edge
  • Barriers and challenges the 5G edge faces

We are witnessing a major shift in technology in the enterprise and the way CoSPs architect and implement their networks and service offerings.
