We have all heard the promises of mobile edge computing: 100X speed, extreme low latency, unlimited scaling. But what is the current mindset of operators today? While strategies for edge enablement are often masked under 5G evolution planning, the truth is that edge-enabled networks can unlock new features and capabilities now and are exponentially enhanced by the adoption of 5G.

Years of research have helped to identify use cases where application owners believe edge functionality is needed. We're sharing this research for the first time to explore where, when and how operators play a critical role in bringing the next generation of end-user experiences to the world through the power of the mobile edge.

Join us as we discuss the current state of the edge, enabling the future state of hybrid networks, and the industry need for edge-enabled capabilities.

Key topics include:

  • Operator "State of the Edge" today
  • A sound approach to vertical adoption
  • Current industry use cases
