5G promises a massive increase in bandwidth, faster speeds and lower latency, but enterprises will need to bolster their edge infrastructure strategy to support it.

The rollout of 5G presents an enormous opportunity for industrial organizations to innovate beyond what can be supported by today’s 4G network, and deliver unprecedented value to employees and customers. As the number of connected devices continues to grow, and expectations for rapid data transmission continue to rise, industrial enterprises will need to limit the distance between the data source and the end user.
Driven largely by the growing adoption rates of IoT applications, edge computing is becoming critical to efficient data processing and latency-sensitive application function.
5G has the power to transform emerging technology like augmented reality, artificial intelligence, self-driving cars and the IoT into integral parts of day-to-day life. While most industry professionals likely agree that 5G is the “next big thing,” there’s a lot less agreement on when we might expect it to reach the mainstream.
