5G Edge Cloud Survey Insights: Where to Place Your Bets on the 5G Edge
Date / Time: Tuesday, March 17, 2020, 11:00 a.m. New York / 3:00 p.m London
sponsored by
Gabriel Brown, Principal Analyst – Mobile Networks and 5G, Heavy Reading

Paul Miller, Vice President, Telecom Market Segment, Wind River

In a recent Heavy Reading operator survey, 85% respondents said the edge cloud is important, or critical, to their 5G strategy. This is not a surprise given the use cases typically associated with 5G, such as autonomous/assisted driving, AR/VR, high-def streaming video and industrial applications. But it begs the question, if the edge cloud is so important, when and how will it be deployed? And what applications will be most important for service providers looking to capitalize on 5G?

To address these questions and more, join us for a special web seminar that will share insight and analysis from the Heavy Reading 5G Edge Cloud Survey, produced in association with Wind River. The discussion will be led by Heavy Reading Principal Analyst Gabriel Brown, with expert input from Wind River's Paul Miller.

Among the topics addressed in the survey are:

  • Which edge cloud applications are most commercially attractive?
  • Preferences for edge cloud infrastructure software (proprietary vs. virtualized vs. cloud native)
  • Operator expectations for progress on virtual RAN
  • Virtual 5G baseband and associated performance implications
  • The need for a private 5G network for an industrial setting
  • The expected roll-out for 5G in autonomous vehicle operation

We hope you will join us for a lively session and interactive Q&A.
