Achieving Early Success in Edge Deployments
Edge Computing is the hot new area of focus for communication service providers (CSPs) and technology vendors alike, promising a huge return to those who find a way to invest early and capture the value of this new field of deployment. Viewed as a key component of any 5G and IoT strategy, the edge holds significant promise for service providers as a new business opportunity.
However, for CSPs to maximize success in their edge initiatives, there are certain pitfalls that they will have to avoid. And while most Edge deployments are mostly POCs (proofs-of-concept), it’s critical that service providers heed lessons of the past as they develop their Edge roll-out strategy.
SDxCentral’s new Research Brief on Edge Computing aims to provide insights into the most common pitfalls in building out the edge and provides recommendations on how to maximize success at the Edge for operators. Our Research Briefs are a new research product with short, easily-consumed content that provides credible, concrete and actionable analysis to our readers.
Downloading and reading the brief will provide you with an understanding of the top pitfalls to avoid in your edge strategy, including:
- Repeating past CSP cloud and API initiatives that failed
- Not approaching the edge in a holistic manner and instead, taking a siloed approach to edge applications
- Continuing to compete directly head-on with cloud providers and OTT (over-the-top providers) without learning from their success
