Multi-Access Edge Compute Opportunities in Asia/Pacific
By: Shiv Putcha
"CSPs have a major stake in the outcome of edge computing. Having lost out on the cloud computing wave to web-scale players, such as Amazon, Microsoft, and Google, CSPs have either sold their datacenter assets to cloud providers or drastically scaled back their investment plans as they reassessed the business case. However, this time around with edge computing, CSPs have significant advantages over the web-scale players. They also have several challenges that they contend with to accurately scope the edge computing opportunity and then plan for deployments," says Shiv Putcha, adjunct research director, IDC Asia/Pacific.
