Podcast: NTT CTO Ettienne Reinecke on the Edge Evolution

Network operators have been making investments in high-bandwidth, high-frequency 5G technologies and it could take years for those investments to pay off. While that's happening, advances in edge computing and data analytics are improving IoT, enterprise computing, private networks and all kinds of other applications in the technology landscape.

Those are some of the observations of NTT's CTO Ettienne Reinecke, who joined the podcast this week from Sydney and discussed his post on the most disruptive tech trends he sees taking place this year.

Reinecke's focus is mostly on how enterprises are using technology. Since he's from NTT, the discussion volleys back and forth between traditional IT and next-gen communications infrastructure. In the podcast, he tells Light Reading's Phil Harvey and Kelsey Ziser about NTT's continued advancements in edge computing technology, as used at the 2019 Tour de France. He also discusses NTT's ongoing project in Las Vegas, where the city is using edge computing, sensors and AI to help first responders and improve traffic management.

His interest in speed and scale means he often covers optical networking and the foundational technologies powering the modern Internet.

Harvey covered networking, Internet infrastructure and dot-com mania in the late 90s for Silicon Valley magazines like UPSIDE and Red Herring before joining Light Reading (for the first time) in late 2000.

After moving to the Republic of Texas, Harvey spent eight years as a contributing tech writer for D CEO magazine, producing columns about tech advances in everything from supercomputing to cellphone recycling.

Harvey is an avid photographer and camera collector – if compulsive shopping and "collecting" are the same. His work can be seen on Flickr, Instagram (sometimes) or by opening one of the dusty shoe boxes in his attic.
