Telcos are in a unique position today where they can evolve into adaptive organizations that can quickly anticipate and respond to shifting market dynamics. Having both a deeply established infrastructure and an extensive customer history, telcos that can build off that foundation and go beyond their traditional offerings of cloud, internet and phone service will be able to unlock new revenue streams across several industries and sectors. Here’s how…
Edge AI: Enabling New Revenue Streams for Telcos
Capturing the B2B Growth Opportunity
Combining Edge Computing with 5G to Empower Sustainable Agriculture
Putting these ideas into action, EPAM recently joined a TM Forum Catalyst alongside Telus, Verizon, Red Hat, Evita and CloudBlue to develop an award-winning technical blueprint for configuring and deploying innovative agriculture solutions.
The project leveraged 5G network slicing, mobile edge computing, robotics and AI/ML modelling tailored to three specific use cases: robotic harvesting, autonomous weeding and sensor-based irrigation.
The blueprint can be easily scaled and deployed by telcos, enabling expansion into the agriculture industry as a one-stop shop for smart agriculture solutions. This enables:
- New revenue and growth opportunities, like 5G monetization and B2B revenue streams
- Extended services with new business applications
