Empowering Edge Cloud in the 5G & IoT Hyper-Connected Era

It is well documented that the amount of data that is being produced on a daily/monthly/yearly basis is growing at astronomical rates. IDC have estimated that by 2025, 175 zettabytes of data will be created each year and will continue to grow. The data will be in both structured and unstructured forms and there will be major logistical challenges in moving this data from the devices that create the data to where the data is acted upon and decisions made.
