Cheat-sheet: The new 5G application paradigms and Microsoft Azure
Published Nov 29 2022 08:00 AM 4,597 Views

5G is not just a wireless network upgrade, it enables new application architecture paradigms which allow you to achieve business use cases that were unthinkable a few years ago!


Key 5G characteristics such as very low latency, coverage of large and broad areas, high bandwidth, and very importantly as a differentiator versus Wi-Fi, QoS, reliability, security, slicing, and even network APIs to interact with the network from your apps make those new scenarios possible.


We’re excited to share this Infographic or “cheat sheet” we created explaining the key topics related to 5G, fundamental characteristics of 5G, new possible topologies (5G Private MEC and 5G Public MEC), and some details and elements of a simplified 5G architecture when using 5G with Azure Private MEC solution.

This is just “the tip of the iceberg”! We’re planning on releasing more interesting material such as generic use cases per vertical, sample architectures, etc. Stay tuned!
