Podcast: Verizon's Anand Shah on why private networks are a big opportunity4/21/2021
Anand Shah, Verizon's director of technology strategy and architecture, joins the podcast to talk all about private networks. We cover the wide variety of use cases for private networks, the enterprises and industries that present the most challenging private network deployments; and we talk briefly about security considerations and edge computing advancements involved as well.
Shah also reminds us that managed services is a huge opportunity that surrounds private networks, even in those cases where 5G is not the most urgent need. For many businesses, in fact, connectivity, networking and IT itself can all be delivered as a service. "I mean, you don't need an IT department now to manage these private networks, we got it for you," Shah said.
