Podcast | Edge: From ambition to implementation

Edge computing’s benefits to data security, latency and bandwidth are making possible a host of new use cases across a swathe of industries. WWT’s new research, conducted with Analysys Mason, reveals the scale of the Edge opportunity by highlighting 30 use cases expected to deliver significant revenues and that really is just the tip of the iceberg.

Making these use cases a reality is the topic of the final podcast in our series on Edge computing for telecoms service providers, created by WWT in partnership with Telecoms.com.

In this episode, Telecoms.com editor Scott Bicheno is joined by WWT’s EMEA Chief Technologist for Service Providers Daniel Valle and Intel’s Senior Solution Architect Larry Horner. Their conversation gets into the nitty-gritty, exploring what enterprises are already doing with Edge, taking in examples such as high-resolution cameras in industrial QA and data security in remote healthcare. They discuss what makes Edge so well suited to these applications, and why telcos are essential to their success.

As Larry says, no-one’s data gets to the cloud without going through service providers. But the opportunity is much greater than that. This discussion highlights why telcos should look to move from offering connectivity to providing use cases and outcomes, and how the right partnerships can help them turn the complex ecosystem of Edge hardware, software and connectivity into enterprise-ready platforms and solutions.
