*5G and Beyond*

5G and Beyond

5G has been a catalyst for building intelligence at the network edge, and with the next phase of 5G Advanced underlining the need for end-to-end AI integration, future mobile generations will learn fast, self-orchestrate, and open new possibilities of how we can interact with our devices. Be it through holographic communications or gesture recognition to support extended reality-based applications, even 6G is beginning to find its form. But as the rollout of mobile generations gets shorter, the return on investment is now taking longer. And as each generation presents new features and a wealth of new opportunities, is patience needed at a time when the industry is speeding up?

*AI Economy*

AI Economy

The impact of Generative AI continues to create headlines but, within a fast-changing tech landscape, it is important to look at it through a practical lens. With the potential to optimise processes and tools that can accelerate transformation in the network or cloud; to bringing a new level of natural interaction between people and computers that can deliver personalised experiences for customers - the hype surrounding Generative AI is one being built on top of valuable foundations. And at its heart is data and data management. The pace of change is both disruptive and exciting, and we’re only just getting started.

*Manufacturing DX*

Manufacturing DX

Manufacturers are putting significant time and money behind their digital strategies. Whilst 5G provides benefit to all economic sectors of the global economy, manufacturing, driven by applications such as smart factories and warehouses, may benefit most with its natural setting for private wireless networks and data-led solutions. Technologies are broadening the competitive landscape, providing sustainable solutions that increase factory efficiency, improve production performance and decrease cost. With institutions such as the European Commission and companies increasingly investing in AI and robotics, can the true value of Industry 4.0 be finally captured?
