Feb 02, 2020—As we look ahead to this year and beyond, we can expect to see an explosion in numbers—think billions—with respect to 5G networks connecting Internet of Things (IoT) devices. The IoT will be a system of many millions of different types of devices for a multitude of applications. Such devices will communicate autonomously with each other and their users via the cloud. We can expect to see mobile network operators (MNOs) implementing these new 5G standards in their networks to make the IoT a reality, and we will certainly witness a huge shift of enterprise computing function to the edge. You won't have to rely on a data center—effectively, you will be able to put that in "next to" your workforce.
