How 5G+ Edge Technologies are driving Sustainability?

Why does “sustainability” matter so much now more than ever? How sustainability can be driven through 5G+ Edge Technologies? How can we leverage 5G+ Edge to lower consumption of resources such as energy, water, minerals, crops and sustain our ecosystem? Read this article by Prasad Rajamohan.
How 5G+ Edge Technologies are driving Sustainability?
“Sustainability is not a choice anymore for businesses & people.”

 

5G+ Edge so far

Even during the challenging times, technologies such as Cloud, IoT, AI, 5G, and Edge have advanced farther than ever imagined. 5G+ technology has ushered-edge applications that are already transforming many businesses and consumers across the world.

5G+ edge applications for autonomous cars are bringing passengers such experiences that were once possible in science fiction movies. The integrated Smart Factory† and Remote Monitoring of Oil & Gas Drilling are promising tremendous value to businesses in terms of cost optimization, growth, and innovation. Precision Farming, Smart Patient Monitoring, Smart Grid, and Smart Homes are delivering direct value to the lives of billions of people around the world.

For such transformations to come to fruition, complementary technologies in hardware and software must advance at the same time.

Telco companies quickly promoted the 5G+ portfolio as their key business imperative and enabled 5G+ infrastructure across the globe, electronics companies developed new edge-specific hardware such as IoT edge sensors, edge routers, edge transmitters, and receivers. Network technologies developed new message protocols, higher bandwidth, and processed terabytes of data at the edge to handle 5G+ requirements.

Edge application framework uses scalable Microservices and Kubernetes clusters to transform edge computing and move the Cloud prowess closer to the source of data. Security services for the edge applications are using modern AI techniques, support dynamic updates to defend against rapidly evolving sophisticated attacks, and security is embedded as an integral part of the hardware.

Business leaders and technologists are excited that we are at a true inflection point in 5G+ edge technologies to accelerate digital transformation across businesses and people. While the core of 5G+ edge technologies have matured to enable large-scale applications, there are still challenges in the areas of security, hardware, and application integration.

Technology innovators are working smart to close these gaps and advance the digital transformation ubiquity. On the other hand, the recent environmental crisis, and the impacts of pandemics have brought unforeseen challenges to business leaders. 

Although the new climate agreements by nations and the regulatory mandates force businesses to act, sustainability is still not seen as a means to improve the bottom line and achieve growth.

“Agility” is the new corporate mantra, and “sustainability” is no longer a choice but a pivotal business goal.
