Microsoft and AT&T partnership will bring cutting edge technologies in the future

Microsoft has announced a multiyear collaboration with AT&T to better shape the tech future.

The huge partnership between these two giants will hopefully have a big impact on the development of Windows in the future and will integrate new technologies, as Microsoft’s CEO stated:

AT&T is at the forefront of defining how advances in technology, including 5G and edge computing, will transform every aspect of work and life

While AT&T is moving its services to Microsoft 365 and other Microsoft services, which admittedly is a great win for the big M, Microsoft is more focused on the 5G capabilities and how can they be implemented:

Microsoft will tap into the innovation AT&T is offering on its 5G network, including to design, test, and build edge-computing capabilities. With edge computing and a lower-latency 5G connection enabled through AT&T’s geographically dispersed network infrastructure, devices can process data closer to where decisions are made

As a result, AT&T is becoming a “public cloud first” company by migrating non-network workloads to the public cloud in the future. Their infrastructure applications will migrate to the Microsoft Azure cloud platform.

The main areas that will benefit from this deal are intelligent edge and networking, conferencing, public safety, IoT, and cyber security.

The two companies envision scenarios with 5G enabling near-instantaneous communications for a first responder who is using AI-powered live voice translation to quickly communicate with someone in need who speaks a different language.

How will this affect Windows 10 or future iterations, it remains to be seen. But instant cloud capabilities, a smarter Cortana with a better AI integration, and 5G on Windows laptops sound pretty good.

What do you think about this collaboration?
