Webinar – Edge computing from the front line: developer case studies

Does edge computing deliver on its promises and how will operators (and others) make it happen?

Webinar broadcast: Thursday 12 September 2019

Much of the discussion around edge computing has focused on use cases which, although useful in demonstrating demand for the technology, are still hypothetical.

In this webinar we presented case studies “from the front lines” of developers and enterprises testing edge computing today across different applications such as AR/VR, video analytics, drone/UAV, live experiences and retail.

Key questions we addressed during the webinar include:

  • How does edge computing compare to expectations?
  • What measurable impact does edge computing make to the application?
  • What is the value to software companies, enterprises and agencies?
  • Given the value edge creates, how can telcos monetise this?
