In 2020, the first applications using high-speed 5G, low latency and machine-to-machine communication will be made available. These new offerings, such as high-resolution cloud games, process control with industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and applications with augmented reality in the workplace, will demonstrate the universe that 5G can reveal.
While we do not expect these applications to be widely deployed in the next year, their potential will begin to reshape the market, including the data center industry. For example, with 5G's ability to deliver latencies of less than 10 milliseconds, it will soon be much easier to deploy low-latency 5G applications and by 2020 you will see the data center preparing for this arrival.
For low-latency applications to be successful, more than just 5G is needed. It is also necessary to process the data of these applications close to their sources, using Edge Computing technology, with the so-called edge data centers. This significantly reduces latency and allows these new low-latency 5G applications to deliver on their promise. As a result, we will see more data centers migrating to Edge Computing in 2020, to push these applications to the limit of their efficiency.
