AT&T and Google Cloud Partner to Deliver 5G Edge Computing Solutions

AT&T and Google Cloud are collaborating together to deliver a portfolio of 5G edge computing solutions, according to a press release on AT&T’s website. The collaboration will combine Google’s cloud technologies and AT&T’s network connectivity to help enterprises address emerging business challenges. The solutions will span multiple industries, including manufacturing, retail, transportation, local enterprise 5G, and gaming.

Our MSP Buyer’s Guide contains profiles on the top cloud managed service providers for AWS, Azure, and Google Cloud, as well as questions you should ask vendors and yourself before buying. We also offer an MSP Vendor Map that outlines those vendors in a Venn diagram to make it easy for you to select potential providers.

The solutions will be powered by AT&T’s global network and utilize Google Cloud’s core capabilities, including Kubernetes, articial intelligence, machine learning, and data and analytics. In addition to these solutions, Google Cloud and AT&T will enable independent software vendors and solution providers to build new solutions and services using Google Cloud and the AT&T Network Edge.
