Edge infrastructure is critical to secure the future of telecoms. This is an industry in flux. Revenues are flattening as consumers demand more data at a static cost.
At the same time, OTT players such as Facebook and Netflix have created innovative, consumer-friendly services using existing telecom infrastructure. Edge presents an opportunity for the telco industry to carve out a new role for itself; one that it is best placed to own.
Telcos are in a strong position to capitalise on the edge. Unlike the existing data centre giants, they boast an extensive real estate footprint ripe for conversion.
