Next-Generation Networking for the Intelligent Edge

By: Brad CasemoreResearch Vice President, Datacenter Networks


These event proceedings were presented at the IDC Directions conferences in Santa Clara and Boston in February and March 2018.

As the edge plays host to a growing array of new applications, the focus ultimately turns to edge networking, which must deliver the requisite connectivity, bandwidth, low latency, and network services for both enterprise and service provider deployments. Indeed, as IoT and other edge services proliferate, a one-size-fits-all approach to edge networking and network security will not suffice. In this session, IDC examines the diversity of network requirements and solutions at the edge, covering physical, virtual, and network-as-a-service (NaaS) use cases and application scenarios.
