Distributed access architecture (DAA) is the next step in a 20+ year evolution. In this white paper you will learn […]

Podcast: Opportunity at the Edge

Edge computing is a hot topic: a buzzy area at the confluence of numerous other buzzy areas in technology, including cloud, 5G and IoT. And crucially, it’s one that enterprise decision makers are taking very seriously indeed.

That’s why WWT partnered with Telecoms.com to record a three-part podcast series exploring enterprise Edge computing for telecoms service providers.

In the first of these podcasts, Telecoms.com editor Scott Bicheno is joined by WWT’s EMEA Chief Technologist for Service Providers Daniel Valle and Dell Technologies EMEA GTM Manager Telco/5G Eric van Vliet. They discuss enterprise attitudes to Edge and the $17bn revenue opportunity it represents, based on findings from new research conducted with Analysys Mason. They also delve into why telcos infrastructure and experience make them so well positioned to capitalise on the Edge ecosystem.

After touching on other hot topics such as OpenRAN, they conclude that the Edge opportunity is great, but so is the complexity of the space. That complexity, and the fact that telcos are not currently front-of mind for enterprise Edge deployments, make forging the right partnerships essential for any telco eager to grab a slice of the Edge pie.

Don’t miss the following two podcasts in the series, which will be available on 18/6 and 2/7.

5G Poster: Cell Site Installation Tips

5G is not just faster than 4G, it is way more complex. And this means installation and turn-up is also much more involved. All the different pieces have to work together instantaneously. Things like beam forming with new antennas with massive MIMO, new frequency ranges, millimetre-wave and of course it also depends on how the […]

IoT and Network Sunsets: A 4G/5G Planning Framework

Internet of Things (IoT) projects are often part of enterprise digital transformation initiative.

Making the most of 5G opportunities

5G is expected to provide extraordinarily fast data rates and low latency, as well as enable many completely new services and products. In some specific cases, 5G as Fixed Wireless Access (FWA) can be a better alternative or a complement to traditional landline networks. However, many new challenges are coming with these new capabilities; for […]

Digital Transformation Tracker: Culture change for CSPs

TM Forum’s Digital Transformation Tracker 4 explores how a cultural change in IT is critical for communications service providers (CSPs). TM Forum surveyed nearly 150 executives, and found that most CSPs are optimistic about the future. However, cultural change is slow and difficult to scale. For instance, different agile development frameworks work well within CSP […]
