Azure Edge Zones unlock a new range of distributed applications with a common and consistent architecture that companies can use. The new zones enable developers to build optimized and scalable applications using Azure and directly connected to 5GThe “G” in 5G stands for generation. 5G is the fifth generation of wireless technology. 5G is characterized by bigger channels (which improves throughput), lower latencies allowing for real time applications, and the ability to connect more devices (which is increasingly important as the number of devices has grown exponentially). More networks, taking advantage of consistent Azure APIs and tooling available in the public cloud.
The Edge Internet bridges the network community with the application community to unlock the benefits of 5G. From the beginning, AlefEdge has focused on a programmable Edge with Edge algorithms, intelligent Edge architectures, services, APIs and most importantly value extraction. In addition to the first-ever CBRS-Edge deployment at a tower data center, AlefEdge deployments have included mobile network operators, advertising applications, Internet of Things and other Edge-native use cases with ecosystem partners. While locations and networks vary, the critical software and architecture remains the same.
