Innovations in 5G Technology Create New Possibilities for Cloud Computing

FinancialBuzz.com | July 04, 2022

The implementation of 5G continues to grow quickly. The two main factors contributing to the swift adoption of the technology are the constant construction of 5G infrastructure and the growing use of smartphones around the world and particularly in developing economies. According to research by J.P. Morgan, Northeast Asia is leading the global adoption of 5G technology. Additionally, 5G adoption is projected to help accelerate the Internet of Things (IoT) in the region. By 2025, Japan and South Korea are expected to see 150 million IoT connections, which is +29% in terms of compound annual growth rate (CAGR). China, meanwhile, is expected to see 2.5 billion connections (+13% CAGR). uCloudlink Group Inc. (NASDAQ: UCL), AT & T, Inc. (NYSE: T), Marvell Technology, Inc. (NASDAQ: MRVL), DISH Network Corp. (NASDAQ: DISH), SK Telecom Co.,Ltd. 5G is also expected to affect various other innovative tech sectors, like the AR/VR market and the cloud computing industry. Generally, the global market for cloud computing is being propelled forward by newly emerging technologies such as big data, artificial intelligence (AI), and machine learning (ML). Meanwhile, the expansion of cloud computing services has grown due to several factors such as the protection of sensitive data, the acceleration of disaster recovery (DR), and the fulfilling of regulatory mandates. uCloudlink Group Inc. announced last week breaking news that, "the Company's operating subsidiary, HONG KONG UCLOUDLINK NETWORK TECHNOLOGY LIMITED has inked an agreement with SAN VENTURE SERVICE GMBH ("SAN Group"), a biotechnology company headquartered in Austria. Under the agreement, SAN Group will utilize UCLOUDLINK's data connectivity services and related products to allow its employees to have access to high-quality data connections at anytime and anywhere. UCLOUDLINK has been the partner for various companies across Europe such as in the financial and car rental industries, as UCLOUDLINK continues to broaden its user base in Europe. As the leisure and corporate travel gradually recover, UCLOUDLINK's data connectivity services and related products will support SAN Group's employees with seamless data connection while working remotely or on international business trips — allowing them to obtain a high-quality data connection while reducing the cost of roaming. Like SAN Group, enterprises with a large number of employees who travel internationally frequently, now can address their employees' mobile data connectivity issues with UCLOUDLINK's solutions, which ensure a reliable, high-quality and innovative mobile data connection, allowing them to drive greater efficiency and maximize business-trip returns. Furthermore, UCLOUDLINK has also engaged in continued research and development to strengthen its technical advantages. UCLOUDLINK has developed global 5G roaming solutions which enable users to enjoy high-speed and reliable data connectivity services worldwide. Meanwhile, by leveraging its patented cloud SIM technology and hyper-connectivity solution, UCLOUDLINK's PaaS and SaaS platform will help improve data connectivity services and bring convenience to all its users and business partners from different industries. To fulfill the increasing demands from more and more enterprises for faster and better data connectivity services used locally and internationally, UCLOUDLINK will continue its ongoing business strategy of consciously shifting its business focus to the development of PaaS and SaaS platform centric service and ecosystem, enabling its business partners and users to transform from "connected" to "better connection" with its core innovative technologies, extensive solutions, services and related products."

Lance Spencer, Client Executive Vice President – Defense, AT&T Public Sector and FirstNet said, "The AT&T 5G-powered solution we've delivered at Naval Base Coronado is a first of its kind, high-performance, highly secure, and scalable private network solution. We expect it will serve as the foundation for improved efficiency, timeliness, accuracy, security, and safety of Naval warehouse operations." Marvell Technology, Inc. announced on May 9th, a definitive agreement to acquire privately-held Tanzanite Silicon Solutions, Inc., a leading developer of advanced Compute Express Link™ (CXL™) technologies, in an all-cash transaction. Marvell's on-going data center-focused investments, including in its CXL solutions, have expanded the company's addressable market to advance the industry's most comprehensive portfolio of cloud-optimized silicon solutions. With today's announced acquisition, Marvell strengthens its CXL development initiatives.
