Real-World Edge Computing Use Cases for Monetizing 5G
As the world generates more and more data at ever-faster speeds and extreme low latency becomes table stakes, enterprises are having to move their data processing technologies as close to the data source as possible—i.e., to the edge. With this in mind:
- How to determine where that edge is and how best to use it for real-time, ultra-low latency decisions, a closer look at some use cases.
- How today’s most powerful data platforms can be used to power everything from Industrial IoT to smart cities to network security.
- Ways communications service providers can monetize their networks in enterprise scenarios.

Achieving 5G RAN Workload Performance with a Telco-Optimized K8 Platform
For CSPs, the increase in network costs combined with near-flat revenue from connectivity services results in a critical business requirement to explore opportunities beyond traditional services.
A more open, automated network is necessary to break legacy vendor lock-in while promoting innovation for new use cases in the era of 5G mobile networking. The network evolution from an architecture of distinct, dedicated appliances to a modern, cloud-native, microservices architecture provides a realistic opportunity to change the operational and economic model for CSPs.
CSPs have an opportunity now to apply deep telecom domain insights into a webscale platform that is optimized for RAN, 5G, and other network function workloads.
