5G promises to be a transformational technology that will allow data to travel instantaneously and make it possible for use cases such as autonomous vehicles to be a reality. While IoT use cases are possible without 5G, 5G unlocks an unimaginable potential for ‘real-time’ use cases such as autonomous vehicle user case referenced above as well as ones such as remote robotic surgery.
Virtualization of the network is a key enabler of 5G, in fact, some would argue that 5G is not possible without it. Operators need to have SDN and NFV deployed in their networks in order to virtualize the huge portions of their networks need to fulfill their vision of 5G.
This eBrief will cover:
5G and IoT Networking: Great Promise Over a Broad Horizon
The challenging — and exciting — element of modern IT and telecommunications is that multiple technologies are emerging at more or less the same time. Artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML), IoT, 5G, and various forms of virtualization all are game changers. Each would be significant if it was the only innovation. The synergies between them will be overwhelming. Download to continue reading.
The Strong Link Between 5G and Virtualization
The changes network functions virtualization (NFV) and software-defined networks (SDN) are bringing to telecommunications and enterprise networks can’t be overestimated. The distribution of data is being radically transformed on the fly. It’s being done while aggregate traffic grows and while the most sophisticated of that traffic is increasing disproportionately. To top it all off, an increasing portion of what flows through this new network is mission-critical business data. Download to continue reading.
