Will you be able to manage thousands of edge cloud infrastructures?

Edge provides a huge opportunity to host many use cases on one infrastructure, manageable from a single pane of glass. Getting close to end-users not only allows the operator to tap directly into the new revenue streams for ultra-low latency/ultra-reliable services, but also to provide “edge-as-a-service,” and other infrastructure-as-a-service and hosting services to other enterprises.

AT&T to deploy 5G network plus edge services to Deloitte University

AT&T and Deloitte University will bring 5G network connectivity and edge computing services to Deloitte to help the college transform the future of digital corporate learning and workplace collaboration in the university’s 700,000 sq. ft. leadership and learning center located near Dallas in Westlake, Texas. The new communications platform will help enable DU to explore new technologies and innovations to enhance experiential learning programs and overall guest experiences. MEC and 5G will be installed at the center to support specific use cases.

Edge computing and IoT – when intelligence moves to the edge

Both edge computing and fog computing are strongly on the rise for the same exact reasons: an IoT data deluge. This IoT data deluge, among others, takes place in the converging worlds of IT and OT (predominantly Industrial IoT) and occurs in general as we keep adding more IoT devices in the scope of mainly large-scale IoT projects, the industrial markets of Industry 4.0 and IoT use cases and applications where a lot of data needs to be analyzed and leveraged, often also in an IT and OT environment as we, for instance, find them in IoT in manufacturing.

EDITORIAL GUIDE: Managing a Network’s Physical Layer Infrastructure

Local area networks are experiencing a metamorphosis of shapes and sizes. Devices that never were part of the network, such as manufacturing equipment, are now being brought online via low-speed connections. At the same time, the rise of edge computing literally is reshaping the network, as it becomes more distributed. These changing patterns of network layout and connectivity are driving the adoption of new approaches and new technologies to manage the network’s physical infrastructure. The articles in this guide look at this evolution from the perspectives of industry standards, business objectives, and choices for technology implementation.

CommScope Definitions: What is Edge Computing?

Edge is where connection occurs. It’s the place people, devices or “things” access the network. If there is no connection, it’s not edge. Connectivity will play a critical role at the edge. The connectivity can be wireless, fiber or copper in different forms. The value of edge is data, in many cases real-time data. The majority of data at the edge is processed locally. The rest of the data can be passed to the data center for further compute and storage. If there is no data, it’s not edge. Finally, the interactions at the edge go beyond just human beings and the networks. Devices or “things” play important roles at the edge.

Webinar: Connectivity for the Edge Computing Era

Edge computing is a new evolution of the processing and storage distribution trend that brings high-bandwidth and low latency access to applications closer to users and devices than ever before. As edge computing redefines the future of data centers, it must also redefine the future of network connectivity. This webinar will address which use cases will drive edge computing in the near-term, identify the primary connectivity requirements, including data rates and latency, identify the role for software automation, predict to what extent edge computing will drive 400 Gbit/s, and more.
