5G Network Strategies: Deploying and Securing Edge Clouds
Date / Time: Thursday, June 18, 2020, 2:00 pm ET / 7:00 pm London
To deliver consistent performance in 5G networks and to support low-latency, ultra-reliable services in particular, it is widely expected that operators will need edge cloud infrastructure. Hosting applications and content closer to the "user" can improve the service experience and enable high-performance applications that are impractical, inconsistent or not possible, using only large, centralized cloud infrastructure. Without question, this will require that CSPs turn up their security game.
Join this webinar and hear what respondents to Heavy Reading's 2020 5G Networks & Services Strategies Operator Survey think about edge deployment and edge security.
