5G technology provides a unified digital experience for billions of connected devices that transmit data at speeds 10-20 times faster with lower latency and higher reliability than 4G/LTE technology.

 

The combination of real-time edge computing and 5G deliver the low latency, high reliability and efficiency needed to power applications like artificial intelligence (AI), augmented reality and virtual reality (AR/VR), vehicle-to-everything (V2X) connectivity, smart cities and smart manufacturing.

 

This whitepaper provides an overview of four use cases across several industries made possible by edge computing and 5G connectivity. Topics include:

 

  • How to achieve lighting fast data rates using millimeter wave (mmWave) and Massive MIMO (mMIMO) solutions
  • A V2X edge computing solution we developed with Baidu that supports autonomous driving vehicles in smart cities
  • The changing landscape of smart manufacturing and the Industrial Internet of things (IIoT) due to 5G machine-type communications
  • How remote surgery is coming to fruition with low-latency, high-reliability communication as well as connectivity considerations for patient care of the future

 

With our experience across industries with both 5G and edge, we can help you meet rising consumer expectations for speed, reliability and capacity as you develop and scale your next product.
