Many telcos are linking edge compute to 5G, but this is only part of the story. Other factors, like virtualization, containerization, service decomposition/disaggregation and placement, CO transformation and the emergence of Edge computing requirements are dramatically transforming the SPs Service Edge.

But with all the hype on edge computing and edge cloud, everyone is now claiming to have products that are focused on the “Edge”. This branding and edge washing has created a lot of confusion around “What is the Edge”, “Where is the Edge” and “Who owns the Edge”?

The Edge Cloud Summit programme will respond these questions by providing descriptions and definitions of industry terms and technologies including ETSI MEC (Multi-access Edge Compute), O-RAN architecture, Service Edge Transformation, Network Data Center, and describe the main industry initiatives.
