Today’s newest generation of applications is changing user experiences in ways we have never seen before. This is especially true in the mobile-first world. In order to make these experiences meaningful requires the right set of capabilities at the edge of the network. Look for 5G to play a major role in this area.
Look for service providers and their customers to be the biggest beneficiaries of the shift in mobile compute power moving to the edge of the network. Rather than having to backhaul traffic generated by applications to a data center, service providers of all sizes will soon be able to provide interactive experiences with real-time applications that run at the edge of their networks.
