Microsoft Targets 5G Network for Faster Cloud Service

- Advertisment -

Tech giant Microsoft is working with AT&T to boost Azure’s processing power.

Microsoft Corporation wants to use the 5G network of their partners like AT&T. Inc to improve its Azure cloud. The technology corporation has already established a network of more than 60 data center regions across the world where users can rent computing storage and power.

Over the years, Microsoft has been offering services that allow customers to perform tasks on devices at the client’s location and to crunch data.

Microsoft now wants to utilize the 5G equipment of AT&T to provide processing power located closer to some customers than regional data centers. Closer means better speeds.

“5G is amazing technology for certain types of scenarios,” Microsoft Executive Vice President for Strategic Missions and Tech Jason Zander said. “You can’t just stick everything in a cloud.” Zander has been an Azure executive from the product’s early stages.

Satya Nadella, Microsoft Chief Executive Officer assigned Zander to work on future computing ideas such as 5G, quantum computing, and computing in space.

Using mobile phone networks allows Microsoft to offer Azure customers better processing power. Other news that Microsoft is planning to announce are:
