Constantly evolving wireless technologies accelerate the trend to move from application on hardware devices to the edge. 5G standalone (SA) and beyond networks enable large-scale virtualization, which could benefit smart grids. This paper investigates the potential of 5G SA and edge technology to provide a platform for smart grid applications. We study how operating on the edge could benefit applications and provide a concrete perspective based on measurements and the process of building an edge communication pilot for smart grids. Results of preliminary QoS measurements with a commercial 5G SA network are compared with prior 5G non-standalone (NSA).
