2018/10/20: IOT is driving the need for new networks and computing on the edge.
5G models are varied and flexible; expect companies to compete based on their ingenuity in implementing them.
5G is important to low-latency, high-bandwidth applications, but competitors such as LoRa may dominate smart homes and other low-bandwidth uses.
Edge computing will enable autonomous driving and the empowered mobile workforce.
Competition will determine who wins the new network race, and I expect some surprising candidates will emerge for your investment dollar.
2018/11/19: Edge computing is not a single technology, but a phrase that describes several layers of infrastructure, some of which are refinements of existing models. Edge infrastructure is a response to new technologies – such as autonomous vehicles and distributed AI applications – that require low latency and close proximity to users. These technologies are shaping the future of Internet infrastructure,
