Making Edge Easy
5G and Micro Data Centres: an essential co-esistance
The role of micro data centres for telecom
The technology supporting the 5G network needs to be upgraded to truly support and enable widespread connectivity.
Traditional data centre solutions are not able to support the requirements of 5G technology. The millimetre waves and microwaves used by 5G don’t travel very far. Hence traditional, centrally-located data centres are not able to support 5G connectivity.
This is where edge micro data centres come into play.
Why does 5G need micro data centres
Micro Data Centres are an ideal solution for 5G as they are small, simple and fast to deploy. They operate from either AC or DC power, are portable, can be easily scaled and are a far greener option than traditional storage rooms. They will allow you to have a standardised network of data centres right by your 5G antennas, indoors or outdoors. Advantages of MDCs include:
