Microsoft and AT&T Set to Preview Azure on 5G Edge Network
Microsoft and AT&T have announced a customer preview of their new Network Edge Compute technology (NEC) that combines cloud, 5G, and edge computing environments for enterprise businesses.
NEC uses Microsoft Azure cloud services and AT&Ts network edge locations to process data closer to the customer, an important aspect especially for real-time computing used in aviation, fleet management, and gaming.
The customer preview will begin in Dallas and later in parts of Los Angeles and Atlanta.
