6 minutes reading

With the spread of the fifth generation of mobile connectivity (5G) worldwide, disruptive technologies are becoming increasingly widespread and recurring. Artificial Intelligence (AI), for example, can be applied more frequently and effectively in our daily lives, as it requires transmitting large volumes of data.

Only a fast, low-latency internet service can support this type of approach. In this context, investing in AI-based resources has the potential to boost the growth of various businesses and contribute to the development of entire countries.

However, for this evolution to be accurate and significant, it is necessary to plan the development of a technological infrastructure capable of sustaining it. This situation includes essential elements in our current times, such as neutral Data Centers, cloud solutions, and connectivity.

Want to know how your company can achieve significant results in this context?

Continue reading this article to understand how these services enable the implementation of innovative solutions, directly contributing to the acceleration of the country’s development.

Evolution: how artificial intelligence and other disruptive technologies drive business growth

According to Gartner’s forecast, global 5G infrastructure revenue will grow by 39% by the end of 2024, totalling $19.1 billion in 2021 (up from $13.7 billion recorded last year). This advancement will support the massive use and evolution of disruptive methods, such as the Internet of Things (IoT) and Artificial Intelligence.

In the case of AI, according to an analysis published by McKinsey, “Artificial Intelligence enables performance improvements in different types of systems, especially when we talk about autonomous machines.”

Due to its low latency and high reliability, the new generation of mobile internet can enhance remote real-time analysis. Additionally, it reduces the time required for training and implementing systems, projects, and machinery, primarily because the algorithms related to the concept can be trained and deployed in a matter of weeks.

Thus, the evolution of using AI-based resources offers a promising new perspective for various types of businesses.

In summary, three key concepts are crucial for this situation to materialize practically:

  • 5G: the new generation of mobile internet, much faster and with very low latency;
  • Big Data: the volume of data to be processed and studied through analytics solutions;
  • Artificial Intelligence: programming that supports intelligent devices capable of optimizing businesses.

According to an annalysis of IBM, we are living in a new and decisive era, where advancements in various technological areas, specifically in 5G and AI, are coming together to change the world.

Advances driven by new technologies promote growth

Following Gartner’s definition, artificial intelligence applies advanced analytics and logic-based techniques, including machine learning, to interpret situations, support and automate decisions, and perform actions.

It is the reason why AI is tied to business evolution. This technology enables advances on multiple fronts when applied on a larger scale. For instance, combined with IoT, AI forms the backbone of Industry 4.0.

This concept involves applying automation and information technology to industrial production, allowing machines to perform extremely complex functions.

Some real possibilities include:

  • Enhanced performance and safety of autonomous equipment: AI can significantly improve the operation and reliability of autonomous machinery.
  • More efficient and robust electronic customer service: services can be tailored to each consumer’s profile and needs.
  • Greater capacity for generating business insights: AI facilitates strategic decision-making through comprehensive data analysis.
  • Efficiency in remote operations and monitoring: enhanced remote management capabilities improve operational efficiency.
  • Significant data capture and analysis: AI improves the ability to gather and interpret data generated by various devices.

As artificial intelligence usage scales up, it holds the potential to break paradigms across various sectors, offering services with increasingly better performance. This scenario leads to the provision of personalized and exclusive experiences.

Data Centers: what changes with the exponential use of Artificial Intelligence?

As data generation grows yearly, the demand for greater Data Center capacity will be driven upward. Hence, companies must have robust structures ready to support this volume.

One of the central elements in this context is the connectivity available in such installations. Given the exponential growth of the global data sphere, ensuring that a company’s data infrastructure can support the operation of systems, programs, software, and networked devices without any interruptions is essential.

A promising strategy in this regard is investing in carrier-neutral Data Centers. These centers are not exclusively tied to any service provider, such as telecom operators or internet providers. This configuration ensures greater diversity and flexibility for clients.

The primary reason is that the facility is interconnected with various operators, preventing downtime and facilitating seamless network changes, almost imperceptible to the end user. It means delivering an internet service that operates independently, not subject to any exclusive provider.

Moreover, the robustness of connectivity provided in the Data Center is enhanced when there are direct links to cloud-hosted services. In this case, the connection provided by the cloud supplier boosts the internet link’s bandwidth and facilitates communication between both structures, allowing for even higher performance.

How carrier neutral Data Centers enhance AI capabilities for businesses

Carrier neutral (or network neutral) Data Centers boost the effectiveness of artificial intelligence in business by offering unmatched flexibility and resilience. In contrast to Data Centers linked to one-service provider carrier, neutral facilities connect to various telecommunications and internet providers.

This variety ensures uptime and firm performance, which is vital for artificial intelligence applications that rely on continuous high-speed data transfer and minimal delays. By relying on a carrier neutral infrastructure your businesses can optimize the AI driven operations, minimizing downtime and easily switching providers as necessary to maintain peak performance.

Furthermore, the improved connectivity in carrier neutral Data Centers significantly enhances the efficiency of AI implementations. These facilities can directly connect to cloud services, improving bandwidth and enabling data processing and analysis.

This direct link allows AI algorithms to train and function efficiently, resulting in the implementation of AI projects and more precise insights. Consequently, businesses utilizing carrier Data Centers can anticipate scalability, improve data handling, and increase overall productivity, positioning them well to leverage the full potential of AI technologies.

What about Colocation?

Most Colocation services are natively neutral to deliver the high availability clients seek. For example, all ODATA Data Centers are carrier neutral, offering clients multiple connectivity options.

This capability brings several benefits, such as redundancy, optimal uptime, and cost optimization. These are essential characteristics for those looking to modernize their technological infrastructure by outsourcing to a specialized provider.

Additionally, ODATA’s connectivity solution enables connections across various points in Latin America, ensuring access to services from major telecommunications operators.


The spread of 5G is driving the usage of disruptive technologies such as the Internet of Things and Artificial Intelligence. The more consistent and continuous adoption of solutions based on these approaches has positive implications for businesses: it ensures greater efficiency and intelligence and enables the use of devices that can generate and capture data more easily.

Consequently, the exponential increase in information traffic demands more from connectivity infrastructures, cloud computing, and Data Centers. These sites, in turn, need to be carrier-neutral to provide stable and resilient service without interruptions.

This characteristic is a decisive factor for the success of operations in the new digital era.

At ODATA, Data Center connectivity is designed to handle increasing data volumes, including edge routers with very high capacity.
