How Edge AI Is Driving a Better 5G Shift

Blog: NASSCOM Official Blog

The road to the 5G dream is paved and the 5G rollout has already begun, but the future of 5G is still uncertain, because of the disappointing responses to these 5G rollouts. This weak response to the 5G introduction is caused due to the underlying challenges that are contrasting to the value proposition of 5G. Users are experiencing slow speeds, inaccuracy, and struggling to take a leap to 5G-specific technologies and resources.

Embracing software-defined and virtualized models along with AI/ML can significantly reduce the hardware costs and also help with the latency issues. According to an IDC analyst report, organizations by centralizing and virtualizing the networking infrastructure can reduce CAPEX while improving performance and agility. Network Edge leverages software-defined networking (SDN) and network functions virtualization (NFV) platforms to improve edge networking.

Edge is facilitating real-time engagements with the intelligence of AI by enabling the edge devices to perform processing and computing of data at the devices itself. Edge AI, thus, unlocks possibilities for our 5G dream. According to IDC, the edge AI Software market is forecast to grow from $355 million in 2018 to a whopping $1.12 trillion by 2023. Meanwhile, the edge computing market is expected to grow from $3.6 billion in 2020 to $15.7 billion by 2025, according to Markets and Markets data.

Let’s understand how exactly edge AI will be critical for 5G:

Let’s further understand the place of edge and AI in the new network model and who will offer what:

This shows that the edge of the network model is shifting, but when coupled with the power of AI, it can become valuable for 5G to architect and manage the network that enables cost efficiencies, enhances performance, and delivers next-generation services.

Though the edge AI is changing the 5G game, cloud remains in the game. Cloud-based AI is helping with on-device processing. This will further disrupt the digital acceleration and the trend that started amid COVID-19 this year.
