Pre-engineering a solution for Edge
MobiledgeX-led Consortium demonstrates the value of collaboration and aggregation
Edge is more than just a new buzzword and opportunity, it is a core component within CSPs’ deepest defensive advantage – their access networks, right-of-way, and far flung real estate infrastructure. Yet Edge is both embryonic and demands specialized knowledge, incubation of new industries, and operations very different from what CSPs are accustomed to. We believe that concentrating efforts through a small number of focused consortiums/ecosystems can concentrate resources and expertise and gives the best opportunity for success.
This note highlights one such ecosystem, led by MobiledgeX, describes its focus, current members, and expands on the advantages and challenges they propose to overcome.
