The rollout of 5G and its much higher speeds will enable new applications such as AR, VR, IoT/IIoT and autonomous vehicles. However, the performance requirements of these apps also create a greater need for more distributed edge data centers that put high-performance edge computing closer to the end-user. 5G will require more data centers or central office environments than existing networks and many argue that 5G networks must utilize container-based microservices to support all use cases and services-based architecture. This session will explore why 5G is making edge infrastructure even more complicated, and real-world examples of how data center operators are simplifying support for 5G services.
