We discussed the near-term deployment drivers for virtualizing at the network edge. Although scalability and cost savings are a near universal goal with all networking technology developments, virtualizing at the edge will be about supporting a range of networking and service delivery use cases. In other words, in order to fulfill the necessary ROI requirements to justify adoption, investments in edge virtualization will need to result in the ability to support new revenue streams as much as conserve network operating costs.In terms of supporing new revenue streams, many point to 5G as holding the key to unlocking the new business models that will enable operators to create new revenue streams. However, some 5G skeptics will point out that there is little that 5G enables that 4G cannot support today. One primary reason why 4G will ultimately prove inadequate to support a myriad of IoT-driven enhanced mobile broadband (eMBB), ultra-low latency (ULL) use cases is a matter of scale. Simply put, 4G cannot scale economically enough to handle all of the requirements related to eMBB, ULL and IoT.
