IoT, AI and M2M communication are redefining the digital landscape. 5G is reshaping things further by fuelling the widescale adoption of autonomous tech. From shared transport networks, unmanned transport management systems (UTMS) and smart cities, to smart medicine, mobile gaming, industry 4.0 and robotics. 5G will be the underpinning enabler to these next- generation services. The data generated as a result needs handling in real time for safety and usability reasons and edge facilities capable of achieving this are in short supply.
