However, this is contingent on the implementation of greater technology which has to do with forming air-ground and space-based networks that are capable of connecting objects close together. A key tenet of this is the increased use of satellites to help support connectivity between devices on Earth and in the adjacent airspace.
Axipiter for 5G
Fifth-generation (5G) mobile networks are going to be implemented across all major countries on a global scale.
To implement this, we will require a cohesive system of networks (terrestrial and space-based) to work together as one unified system primarily to manage demand spikes that come with major activities involving many areas.

Need for Digital Space orchestration in the Telco Industry
The telecoms industry is facing a remarkable period of evolution. Emerging technologies such as IoT and 5G are accelerating digital transformations in a landscape of high consumer expectation. Communication service providers (CSPs) will need to meet the needs of billions of telecoms customers, each with expectations of a dynamic, personalized digital ecosystem.
IDC predicts that by 2030, 30% of the world’s largest companies will use data from digital twins to improve innovation, success rates and productivity, achieving gains of up to 25%.
The continuing evolution of telco networks has led to heterogeneous environments where the “old” technology must coexist with the “new”. Orchestration solutions in the market have advanced considerably from legacy management systems, however, the latter still plays a key role in the telco’s network service provisioning.
A cohesive software suite for orchestration and network automation should eventually harmonize legacy mechanisms with emerging cloud-native architectures.
Axipiter has evolved to meet the demands of an increasingly digitally connected world and is committed to equipping customers with the necessary tools for the 5G future. Axipiter, and is developing a Digital Space Orchestration solution that will help bridge the communication gap that exists today, and in a manner that takes privacy and security considerations into account.
Digital Space Orchestration will help break down information silos, expand situational awareness with data, model workplace operation in real time, and most importantly, help fulfill the promise of the 4th industrial revolution. With the potential of Digital Space Orchestration to power a new era in automation, machine learning and location technology, Axipiter will help both humans and machines better understand and engage with their surroundings, building a smarter world.
Horizontality for hybrid systems
Many organizations take a conservative approach when it comes to software development and release. They continue to follow the well-worn path that they have been following for years and rarely deviate from the techniques they know will guarantee a successful product release.
Business leaders should be aware that adopting this practice while trying to harness the power of next-generation 5G connections will simply not work as next-generation networks are being developed with “silo thinking” in mind. Further testing is needed where individuals’ knowledge of specific details within their domain area is learned firsthand; a general understanding of different areas isn’t sufficient for those committed to producing high-quality products or reliably conducting business.
As cloud computing and edge computing (cloud computing, edge computing, SaaS, microservices, RESTful APIs, virtualization and containerization, etc) are advancing at a rapid pace, these technological advances are only partially addressing how these technologies can be unified and streamlined, avoiding time-consuming and expensive manual errors. and this will be augmented even more so by the great improvements in connectivity that might come from the next-generation 5G network.
The silo approach and vertical compartmentalization continue to stand in the way of global collaborating and sharing efforts, so much so that it’s causing information exchanges to become more difficult and not as effective as they potentially could be. McKinsey Digital reports that the future of integrating into external ecosystems will force companies to interact with many partners, which is why it would be advisable to include a 5G-ready digital interoperability technology within your network, to create a new and unique type of solutions for 5G connectivity in the coming years.
Companies are increasingly aware of the growing importance of the Internet of Things (IoT) as a new business model that is already changing the way organizations think about their business processes and operating environments. IoT will not only make organizations more efficient, but it will also drive organizations to fundamentally rethink the way they do business.
IoT is a growing race of connected devices and multiple factors are being kept in mind while designing IoT software. For example, there is a need to address the issue of poor connectivity. SEO is also a factor. Hence, designing IoT software requires a horizontal approach. Intelligent connectivity and functionality between different systems and devices (to be connected via 5G) can help to break down silos.
The adoption of 5G will unleash the full potential of augmented and virtual reality, smart Cities and the internet of things (IoT); presenting opportunities for communications service providers (CSPs) to strengthen current revenue sources or create entirely new revenue streams. Consumers continue to display an insatiable appetite for data, and with the consumption of data-hungry applications securing a place in consumers’ daily lives, this is set to continue exponentially into the future.
CSPs currently face ever-increasing challenges of leveraging 5G networks and offering customers new types of services. To overcome this challenge, new digital technologies are required to automate complex business processes to provide customers with the new personalized service they have come to expect in a fast-evolving, digital world.
By 2025, CSPs should already be leveraging 5G networks to offer new types of services to various customer segments. The challenges of this endeavor will lie in the ability to scale telco platforms, automate lifecycle management of network slices and incorporate predictive demand and maintenance – all while ensuring operational efficiency and a behind the scenes workforce to support the optimization of the platform.

Our technology blending to support the rise of 5G
The launch of Axipiter’s 5G network is a technological anomaly – combining several powerful forces to provide a rare, cohesive portal through which CSPs can catapult the world into a new frontier. The Axipiter network connectivity disruption has been engineered around the use of four major technological forces: 5G, Edge Computing, Artificial Intelligence, and Blockchain – forging a new landscape in which communication is centralized by Axipiter across all industries – from manufacturing and automotive, to healthcare and agriculture not to mention among other areas. This is revolutionary as it effectively combines three distinct factors that were traditionally incompatible with one another but thanks to this congruence between functionalities have made possible a transformational shift in how millions of people communicate every day.
Faster connections, improved mobile broadband coverage over wider areas, and ultra-low latency connections.
Analyzing large amounts of data quickly and efficiently to drive efficiency and decision-making.
Verifying digitization processes and providing greater transparency across organizations.
Converging the physical and digital worlds, putting AI at the point of creation and execution, and conserving bandwidth.
Edge Computing and 5G
The advent of 5G signals a huge shift for the telecom industry—and not just in how fast your phone will download or stream. With faster speeds, there’s more space for big data and virtual reality, faster response times, and wide streaming coverage, meaning we can all enjoy our mobile entertainment like never before. But most importantly, it helps to bridge that digital divide, and the Internet of Things (IoT) remains the hottest buzzword today when it comes to advancements in tech. And while many believed 5G was solely dependent on increasing speed, 5G is only one of 4 major trends, helping push the future of technology forward and these technologies are set to revolutionize communication across every industry vertical!
One key factor in allowing the widespread use of 5G technology is edge computing. The future of major applications and services relies on a process that doesn’t just have centralized computers as cloud resources for storage and computing. Without edge computing, connectivity could demand an increase in bandwidth usage leading to continuous congestion with peak-time traffic, thus not being able to take full advantage of the latency reduction it offers. Key applications that rely on quick responses from devices will not be able to function correctly if this bottleneck arises due to high levels of traffic which could potentially slow down devices and prevent them from making the quick decisions that are often needed in driving autonomous vehicles, treating medical emergencies, or preventing financial crime.
AI and Edge Device
There is a lot of money to be had in industries that are becoming increasingly digitalized as time goes on, and it’s been predicted by the Gartner Hype Cycle that by 2022, more than half of enterprise-generated data will be created and processed outside of data centers. By 2025, it’s been predicted by Gartner that 75% of will be analyzed and acted upon directly at the edge. The reason for this is because there will be a demand for faster speeds in which to process data and innovations in technology will result in more immersive experiences. For example, within the next 4 years, there will be increased use of light field displays, holographic projection displays, and high-resolution audio equipment.
AI has become the go-to guiding light for the adoption of edge computing. Edge computing brings data collection closer to where the action is so that the necessary actions and applications can be completed much faster. AI helps with overcoming time constraints and providing users with a clear visualization of what is happening in real-time, lowering risks involved in rapid actions taken by machinery or humans that may require immediate attention.
Running artificial intelligence right on the edge is crucial for applications that need near-real-time feedback and optimization because it allows these machines to use highly sophisticated algorithms at the source of information which is often constantly changing. This type of technology is ideal not only in instances where power will be at a premium but also when speed and accuracy are essential factors that could save lives such as in modular technology used for surgical devices and machinery.
Blockchain technology significantly increases the efficiency of supply chains. This technology allows for the digitization of physical assets and the recording of all transactions in an immutable, decentralized ledger. Having a distributed record of all your transactions gives businesses and consumers greater insight into where their products come from, in what conditions they were produced, and who is involved along the way. Blockchain technology can also be applied to other industries.
Blockchain provides an interconnected channel to bridge and centralize digitalized processes between enterprises that don’t necessarily belong to the same company, system, or business ecosystem. Blockchain has enabled this new way of doing business because it has revolutionized the way we do things from conducting and controlling every move our machines make, to protecting them and easily identifying threats or intruders.
A new technical architecture is required
The evolution of 5G will be characterized by the rapid evolution of requirements and technologies, with the technology itself expected to become obsolete as soon as 2025, but the business model will last a lot longer. Even if 5G is considered an evolution that leads to the deployment of new technology, the technical standard will still be developed to deliver a new system that will support a new set of services and business models that will enable the replacement of 4G. The business model will, instead, remain unchanged, with operators still building upon the most important 4G business model by charging for bandwidth, though the usage of 5G should be more intensive and, therefore, more expensive.
However, A migration to 5G technology will be a long process requiring several years at least. This requires the implementation of a cloud-native core network, extensive network virtualization, and automation technologies while keeping the device’s connection to legacy networks available. To be able to implement this strategy, we have chosen the Brick Oriented Architecture (BOA) enabling us to provide better services and ensure for our customers a competitive advantage also in future business models leveraging Digital Interoperability.
The widespread adoption of 5G for consumer applications will benefit from initiatives in which CSPs can participate. When considering the business case for a technology, CSPs must examine possible benefits across their entire value chain, as well as the value that could be created by creating or enabling new applications and services. A balanced approach to such factors enables vendors and operators to deliver digital services that meet customer expectations while optimizing operational costs associated with 5G deployment. Movement by governments towards an environment that promotes the rapid adoption of 5G is also an important step in the process. This includes both the availability of spectrum and regulatory regimes that make it possible for sufficient investment in network infrastructure to take place.
