Webinar – Telco edge compute: which business models and how to execute them

What opportunities does edge offer?

First broadcast: 11 December 2018

In this webinar, we looked at the opportunities in distributed cloud for telcos and how they could be realised.

Applications developers need to engage to get the most out of edge possibilities. We showed a new edge use case related to augmented reality (chosen by user vote ahead of the session). And we looked at the effective business models.

Our guest presenter is from MobiledgeX, which is a leader in the edge computing movement. They aim to connect developers to power next gen devices and application centricity. It was founded by Deutsche Telekom
