rssconsumer IDC RSS alerts Building the Telco Edge <P>Telco edge will develop in parallel with 5G standalone deployments to take advantage of ultrareliable low-latency communications (URLLC), high-bandwidth augmented reality/virtual reality (AR/VR) and time-sensitive services, and network slicing. Telco edge infrastructure will be located at or near cellular sites, far-edge radio access network (RAN) aggregation sites, and regional datacenters to reduce latency. This will allow a single macro cell to support tens or hundreds of thousands of connected IoT edge devices. As 5G services evolve and mature, enterprises will be looking to bringing the edge deeper into the field and nearer to where cell towers and cell sites are located. Many applications represent pent-up demand for edge IoT, such as including high-accuracy location services, AR/VR, connected vehicles, Smart City asset monitoring, homeland security, and society-wide healthcare management. For telco edge to succeed as a business, it must become multitenant while offering bare-metal resources for large captive clients. Multitenancy implies that telco edge must be built as a cloud-native architecture utilizing proven cloud-computing virtualization and container technologies. Collaboration has already emerged between system integrators (SIs), network equipment vendors, over-the-top (OTT)/hyperscale providers, and communication SPs around 5G edge, focusing initially on enterprise or industrial private networking. </P> Market Analysis Perspective Thu, 09 Jul 2020 04:00:00 GMT Bill Rojas, Shaily Shah, Hugh Ujhazy IDC's Worldwide Digital Transformation Use Case Taxonomy, 2020: National Civilian Government <P>This IDC study discusses digital transformation (DX) in national governments and its influence on prioritizing use cases for investment as well as the mission and strategic priorities that are driving technology spending.</P><P>"National governments are digitally transforming to deliver efficient and effective services to constituents and better outcomes for constituents and agencies themselves.
