Intel 5G and Edge: Computing Optimized for Business Value

5G and edge add speed, reliability, and flexibility to enterprise applications by bringing compute closer to its source or where it delivers the greatest business impact.

WHAT IS EDGE COMPUTING?

Not all enterprise applications have the same requirements. When computing extends across cloud, network, and edge with 5G, businesses will have choices around where and how to handle each application. One option, the cloud data center, provides high-volume processing and storage. On the other hand, the edge—which processes data closer to its source and the point of service delivery—provides ultra-low latency to help boost efficiency, improve service quality, and generate actionable insights faster.

WHY 5G AND EDGE COMPUTING?

Distributed computing gives businesses the flexibility to process application data in the location that delivers the most value. In many data-rich and time-sensitive use cases, that may not require a remote data center. 5G connectivity makes the division of computing resources along the cloud-network-edge continuum possible, and its ultra-reliable low-latency capabilities make the shorter connection between the device and the edge even more efficient. In fact, Gartner predicts that 75% of enterprise data will be created and processed outside the cloud by 2025 when 5G networks will be fully deployed.
