Telco edge computing deployment activities

The stages of edge planning and deployment as well as the level of commitment to invest in edge vary greatly among operators, with some already planning to build out edge compute infrastructure, while others are prioritising platforms.

However, in terms of use cases, many operators are coalescing around a few key applications, such as video analytics and AR/VR, where they believe network edge compute capabilities can deliver value.
