How 5G Networks will Influence the Location of Edge Compute

By Bill Wagner | February 26, 2019

While the world eagerly awaits the rollout of 5G networks and the exciting new apps for both consumers and businesses that will be made possible via 5G services, enterprises, telcos, hosting providers and others are scrambling to architect and build the computing infrastructure necessary to support the new requirements of these apps. Two key challenges in defining the computing infrastructure for 5G apps are that they will be data/compute intensive and have little tolerance for network latency. The former means that significant computing capacity is needed to deliver the intended experience of the app and the latter means that the compute must be located in relative proximity to the user of the app. The result: A significant build-out of localized compute (predominately Linux servers and clusters) will be required to service the new generation of 5G apps speeding towards us. But where (specifically) will that compute infrastructure reside?
