Telecoms providers are ideally placed to be a key player in the new Edge network architecture. What’s less obvious is how telecoms providers will monetize their involvement. Other players, OTT content providers to name one are also equally attracted by the prospect of delivering monetized services at the edge.
So why will pay for this Edge? Telecoms providers see it is a real opportunity but how will they establish their role in the value chain and get the business model right. Energy costs, logistical and competitive obstacles all need to be choreographed perfectly if the edge is to be an opportunity, and not simply a distraction or worse still, a threat for the operator.

Why Data Centers Are the Unsung Architects of Business Flexibility
For years, we have seen overcapacity and under-utilization within data centers. Until recently, it was not uncommon for me to visit a site with a design load of 10 mega volt amps (MVA) running only a 2 MVA IT load. Even more common was to see server utilization under 10 percent and not on just the odd machine or racks, but entire IT systems.
Tips for Guiding Customers Through the Edge Deployment Process
