Mobile World Congress 2019
With 5G being a central topic at Mobile World Congress 2019, the subject around which all things telecom revolve, how do edge computing and data centers fit into the big picture? The Edge internet, according to one panelist, is forecasted to create a $4.1 trillion economy by 2030.
At an Applied AI Summit panel held yesterday entitled “AI at the Edge, What is the Opportunity and How to Monetize it” Moderator Steffan Zimmer with Bain, led a panel that included Jason Hoffman, CEO of MobileEdgeX, Keith Strier, VP with NVIDIA and AlefEdge CEO Dr. Ganesh Sundaram.
The discussion focused on how Edge is a key component of 5G and how it will be instrumental to efficiently distributing workloads and delivering new applications and services.
Sundaram, whose company was just named to the GSMA 100, discussed proven deployments done by clients that can be easily replicated globally to support use cases like AR, VR, video streaming, adtech, connected screens, autonomous vehicles and beyond.
“5G has always been on the forefront of the conversation,” Sundaram said, “but what’s emerging now is the role of the Edge Internet and how the ecosystem—from operators down to consumers—will benefit.”
