Since its introduction in 2019, 5G technology has come a long way.
Yet, there’s still a lot of room to grow for 5G architecture. For example, the business community is waiting patiently for edge computing to take fruition.
Basically, edge computing is the practice of capturing, storing, processing and analyzing data near the client, where the data is generated, instead of in a centralized data processing warehouse.
Businesses are eagerly awaiting effective edge computing because 5G edge computing helps solve the key challenges of bandwidth, latency, resiliency, and data sovereignty.
5G edge computing also complements the hybrid computing model where centralized computing can be used for compute intensive workloads while edge computing helps address the requirements of workloads that require processing in near real time.
However, analysts predict edge computing adoption will be slower than anticipated. While edge computing, both Mobile-Access Edge Computing (MEC), and general edge computing, will continue to increase in deployment numbers, the deployments in 2022 will be mostly critical ones made by early adopters and not the start of the boom that is eagerly forecast.
Edge computing use cases and financial viability are tightly coupled to 5G cellular networks, both public and private. The availability of affordable 5G services on which edge computing will thrive is not yet a global reality.
