Podcast: Edge Modernising to Monetise

Edge isn’t just a new technology; it’s a complex ecosystem of hardware, software and connectivity, and the radical new outcomes that can be achieved with them. Telcos are well placed to capitalise on the connectivity needs of enterprises exploring Edge computing, but that’s just one piece of the puzzle and just one aspect of the $17bn opportunity at stake.

Monetising Edge is the topic of the second of three podcasts 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 GSMA’s Head of Future Networks Henry Calvert. Their conversation centres on telcos main challenge to cultivating success in enterprise Edge: the new expertise and models needed in order to adapt from providing the plumbing for voice, messaging and data to offering value-added services such as apps and experiences.

There’s no one way to monetise Edge, but as they discuss, there is a consistent theme: partnerships. With the increasing cloudification of the network, forging partnerships will enable telcos to manage the risk inherent in adopting IT production models, upskill on emerging trends like OpenRAN, and bridge gaps in their knowledge to offer the easy-to-consume Edge platforms that enterprises are crying out for.

The first podcast in the series, Opportunity at the Edge, can be found here, and the final installment will be available on 2/7.
