Nvidia, one of the biggest players in the manufacture of AI acceleration hardware, has just announced its EGX edge computing platform to help telecom operators adopt 5G networks capable of supporting edge workloads. According to the global research firm Gartner, by 2025, companies will generate and process more than 75% of their data at the “edge” of the cloud.


  • Edge computing enables data to be analysed, processed, and transferred at the edge of a network.

  • The idea is to analyse data locally, closer to where it is stored, in real-time without latency, rather than send it far away to a centralised data centre.

  • Experts believe the true potential of edge computing will become apparent when 5G networks go mainstream in a year from now. Users will be able to enjoy consistent connectivity without even realising it.
