5G Using Edge Computing Offers Low Latency, and Cost-Effective Innovation Opportunities

Intel and AT&T are working together to test applications for edge computing. This paper outlines the opportunity to use edge computing and 5G together, including use cases drawn from the media, retail, banking, security and manufacturing industries. AT&T’s work on edge computing is being carried out alongside its project to virtualize 75 percent of its network by 2020, and in preparation for its launch of 5G.
