Opportunities and Threats for Operators in the Edge Computing Value Chain, 2018 Report - ResearchAndMarkets.com

December 3, 2018

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec 3, 2018--The “Opportunities and Threats for Operators in the Edge Computing Value Chain” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

Operators need to consider their strategies now, or edge compute will be more of a threat than an opportunity.

This report provides a uniquely detailed map of the market landscape for operators that want to offer edge computing services. It outlines three roles that operators can choose from in the value chain, and provides recommendations for operators in each scenario, including the optimal technology investments and partnerships. The report will be valuable for senior strategists and decision makers focused on telco cloud or 5G markets.

In this report, we answer the following questions.

Which use cases and industries will drive investment in edge compute, both in the near and longer term? How can operators leverage their physical assets to take a position in the edge value chain? What competitors and threats will operators face as edge-enabled services diversify? What are the roles that operators can play in the value chains associated with different edges, and what decisions do they need to make to assume those roles profitably?

The report is based on a rich variety of sources:

Author’s internal research, including capex forecasts to 2025, and our survey of 78 operators (conducted in 2Q 2018 to understand their edge compute deployment plans and drivers). Extensive interviews with stakeholders including vendors, service providers and industry alliances.
