T-Mobile, Google Cloud team up on 5G Advanced Network Solutions

T-Mobile and Google Cloud recently announced they are working together to combine 5G and edge compute’s power to offer enterprises more ways to embrace digital transformation. T-Mobile will connect the 5G Advanced Network Solutions (ANS) suite of public, private and hybrid 5G networks with Google Distributed Cloud Edge (GDC Edge) to help customers embrace next-generation 5G applications and use cases — such as augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) experiences.

The pairing comes as more companies are looking to edge computing as they focus on digital transformation. Currently, the global edge compute market size is expected to grow by 37.9% to $155.9 billion in 2030. Additionally, the combination of 5G’s low latency, high speeds and reliability will be key to promising use cases in industries like retail, manufacturing, logistics and smart cities.

GDC Edge customers across industries will be able to use T-Mobile’s 5G ANS to get the low latency, high speeds, and reliability they will need for any use case that requires data-intensive computing processes such as AR or computer vision.

For example, manufacturing companies could use computer vision technology to improve safety by monitoring equipment and automatically notifying support personnel if there are issues. Additionally, municipalities could use AR to keep workers at a safe distance from dangerous situations by using machines to remotely perform hazardous tasks.

T-Mobile created a proof of concept at T-Mobile’s Tech Experience 5G Hub called the “magic mirror” with the support of Google Cloud to demonstrate the promise of 5G ANS and GDC Edge in a retail setting. The interactive display leverages cloud-based processing and image rendering at the edge to make retail products magically come to life. Users can hold a product in front of the mirror to make interactive videos or product details — such as ingredients or instructions — appear onscreen in near real-time.

“We’ve built the largest and fastest 5G network in the country,” said Mishka Dehghan, Senior Vice President, Strategy, Product, and Solutions Engineering, T-Mobile Business Group. “This partnership brings together the powerful combination of 5G and edge computing to unlock the expansion of technologies such as AR and VR from limited applications to large-scale adoption.

“From providing a shopping experience in a virtual reality environment to improving safety through connected sensors or computer vision technologies, T-Mobile’s 5G ANS combined with Google Cloud’s innovative edge compute technology can bring the connected world to businesses across the country.”

“Google Cloud is committed to helping telecommunication companies accelerate their growth, competitiveness, and digital journeys,” said Amol Phadke, General Manager, Global Telecom Industry, at Google Cloud. “Google Distributed Cloud Edge and T-Mobile’s 5G ANS will help businesses deliver more value to their customers by unlocking new capabilities through 5G and edge technologies.”
