FREMONT, CA: The industry is 4.0 is fast becoming a reality. The current trend of automation and data exchange in manufacturing technologies is a step ahead of the traditional methods as it encompasses areas that are usually not included in the sector, like smart cities. In many ways, the fourth revolution is an extension of the third revolution. The difference lies in how data and machine learning fuel it.

Digital Transformation

It is essential to integrate digital technology into all areas for digital transformation, as it alters business processes, culture, and customer experiences to meet the changing business and market demands. As a result of this transformation, you can see an increase in productivity and expertise and a fall in the reliance on hardware. This also leads to a rise in cloud services.

Edge Computing

Industrial organizations process massive amounts of machine-based data into actionable intelligence like edge computing, which is enabled through a mixture of many trends. This new form of decentralized computing often takes place near the source of the primary data, as it is difficult to transfer across different locations. Edge computing is a vital part of the cloud computing equation as it enables the Internet of Things and accelerates digital transformation. The massive boom in internet-connected devices, IoT devices, and the arrival of 5G all supplement the process of edge computing in transforming the way data is handled, processed, and delivered.

5G Enabled Edge Computing

5G is one of the most essential technologies that can enhance any form of technology. Technologies today are highly dependent on the internet, and a marriage with a low latency high-speed 5G network is the optimum partner to reap its benefits. 5G provides better insights into business processes and helps companies serve their customers better. The boost in network connectivity gives an extra edge to edge computing by reducing the distance and time that data has to travel between client and server.
