Azure networking capabilities move into the edge!

When implementing telemetry solutions with mobile systems, network latency can be a quite limiting factor. Communication retries are costly and also hinder a system to provide a real-time view on the current state.
To mitigate this risk you now are able to leverage Azure Edge Zones! Microsoft is teaming up with some Telcos leveraging the new 5G to provide a fast lane into Azure data centers.

Azure Edge Zones – 5G access directly into Azure

This is approach, combining all the newest technologies, is able to provide ultra-low latency in the area of milliseconds response times. Especially looking at older mobile connections this is a performance gain in more than an order of magnitude and a great enabler, if your solution requires to be as close to reality as possible.
It is certainly also interesting to mention that this technology is also available for on-premise solutions, keeping the same APIs and services. Due this your solution can be ready for any network scenario.
