The way data is handled, processed, and delivered has changed, and edge computing is driving the change. Edge computing has the potential to accommodate all the digital needs of an organization. However, according to industry experts, investors and end-users are focusing on short-term goals rather than long-term investments due to the unprecedented future of edge computing.

One of the key drivers for edge computing has been the large-scale deployment of 5G, which will assist edge computing. Further, mobile edge computing (MEC) is one of the pivotal factors supporting the 5G networks. In order to integrate computing, storage, and networking with the base stations, the mobile operators are working on mobile edge computing. 5G is an inevitable next-generation technology that will be adopted by all the operators, providing them an opportunity to collaborate with other sectors such as retail, finance, transport, etc., to deliver services beyond connectivity.

At present, North America is the largest regional market for edge computing, driven by colossal cloud adoption and connected devices. In addition, the development of breakthrough technologies such as driverless cars and connected vehicles supports the growth of edge computing across North America. Connected vehicles are evolving exponentially and generating a large volume of data. Thus, in order to manage this data, the automobile manufacturers are focusing on leveraging edge computing. The global players across the automobile value chain have formed the Automotive Edge Computing Consortium (AECC), intending to drive the evolution of edge computing to support the high volumes of data.

Globally, subscriptions for online streaming are growing, with almost 74% of U.S. households subscribing to at least one streaming service. An average user subscribes to 3.4 of them. Latency is one of the primary challenges for streaming services that can be resolved using edge computing to improve network performance by caching content closer to the subscribers using edge data centers. Companies across the edge computing market space are developing solutions and adopting business strategies to accommodate the rising business needs of end-users.

Equinix, Inc. will open a first-of-its-kind, fully functional 5G and Edge Technology Development Center at the Equinix DA11 International Business ExchangeTM (IBX®) data centre in Dallas in September 2021.The development centre includes a fully operational, non-standalone 5G network from Nokia to test and validate 5G services and use cases.
