5G USING EDGE COMPUTING OFFERS LOW LATENCY, AND COST-EFFECTIVE INNOVATION OPPORTUNITIES
Intel and AT&T are working together to test applications for edge computing. This paper outlines the opportunity to use edge computing and 5G together, including use cases drawn from the media, retail, banking, security and manufacturing industries.AT&T’s work on edge computing is being carried out alongside its project to virtualize 75 percent of its network by 2020, and in preparation for its launch of 5G. 5G is expected to bring unprecedented low latency and high bandwidth to the mobile network. This will accelerate existing applications and use cases, and can also make new types of applications viable for the first time. Autonomous vehicles, for example, could generate as much as 3.6 terabytes of data per hour1 and would benefit from a network that could support the rapid processing of huge volumes of data. DOWNLOAD
