Two of the key technologies that are powering Intelligent Industry, 5G and Edge computing, will have a radical impact on industries, transforming operations and driving innovation in ways that we can’t even imagine yet.
Capgemini will help you seize the opportunities and navigate the challenges that are coming with this revolution, with technology consulting, engineering expertise and Information Technology (IT), Operational Technology (OT) and network integration capabilities across this emerging ecosystem.
5G innovation and Edge computing will transform every industry
5G innovation and Edge computing are the foundation of data-driven transformation. They will change the way everyone – companies, governments and consumers – interacts and does business, leading to ground-breaking innovations and services.
Across all sectors industrial companies are in the midst of a digital transformation, using data to unlock efficiency and innovation. This means that being able to connect devices, collect and exploit this data is becoming business critical.
5G, the new global cellular communications standard, brings a step change in the connectivity that is now possible for end-users, and the Internet of Things (IoT). It offers higher speeds and capacity, lower latency, and more reliability. This in turn paves the way for many more innovative use cases, such as robots, automated machines, greater factory automation, augmented and virtual reality, delivered at scale and cost effectively, through a multipurpose network of unprecedented flexibility.
Edge computing will transform the way connected objects are designed, by putting the processing power for a huge number of devices in the infrastructure all around us. Any product or asset can instantly become smart, by bringing cloud applications closer to the device, optimizing service performance and experience.
5G and Edge for communications services providers
For communications service providers (CSPs), 5G enables one scalable, future-proof infrastructure that can host very different use cases. It enables the creation of bespoke networks that can meet the different connectivity requirements of consumers, as well as many different industry sectors, which can be upgraded faster and more cost-effectively. And being software-driven, 5G infrastructure is highly agile with zero-touch orchestration.
Telco Edge infrastructure is also both a network optimization lever for CSPs, and an opportunity to offer distributed cloud services to enterprise players and third-party application providers. With computing power much closer to where the data is generated, there will be almost zero latency in connection and processing, offering a key monetization opportunity for CSPs.
Fundamentally, Edge cloud computing is a radically enabling technology that has limitless applications and will drive much more immersive and interactive services and experiences.
