Networking the Machine Economy

Telco Strategies for the Industry 4.0 Era of AI Automated Businesses

Decision-making AI and machines will be the primary driver of economic growth over the next decade in what’s being referred to as the “Machine Economy.”

‘The Machine Economy’, a $15 trillion economy by 2030, where intelligent machines are used across every industry that they serve, such as Aerospace and Defence, Industrial, Automotive and Medical, where those customers are increasingly using ML and AI, facilitating autonomous products that communicate back with the enterprise.
Examples include autonomous vehicles, drones, robots and smart factories, requiring more and more of the compute, data analytics, machine learning and AI has to be done at the edge, not in the Cloud. This requires very high availability, security and ultra low latency compute at the edge, all requirements that Telcos are ideally positioned to deliver.

Microsoft has acquired a deep Telco expertise and launched a solution set tailoring Azure for Cloud Native 5G networking.
