Google Cloud recently announced a new collaboration with AT&T on “technologies and capabilities using AT&T network connectivity at the edge, including 5G.” There weren’t many specifics in the announcement, which said the two companies would be jointly developing “use cases” for applications yet to be developed that may one day utilize edge computing resources.
AT&T and Google are working together on several “5G/edge solutions,” Google Cloud director, Sinha mentioned. “In one of these solutions, the ‘edge’ refers to AT&T’s 5G network edge. As a part of the solution, we have Google hardware deployed inside AT&T’s network edge and running AI/ML models and other software needed to deliver the 5G/edge solution.”
