Moving the compute power from a device to the network edge with split rendering gives an indication of what is to come for next generation immersive user interfaces. This breakthrough, which will ultimately enable 5G mobile mixed reality use cases, is one of the many use cases we are developing today at our D-15 innovation lab in Santa Clara, California, with partners Qualcomm and Nvidia. However, this is the first step. To make such demanding edge use cases happen at scale worldwide, we need to work to increase the interaction between the network and cloud infrastructure stacks.
In this computing paradigm, connectivity, compute and execution will form a single unified, integrated execution environment for distributed applications – providing integrated adaptive compute, connectivity, security and storage for any place, time, device and application.
