This IDC Market Presentation examines the innate advantage telecommunications companies have in providing edge computing for a range of deployment models. Various IDC research datapoints are used to illustrate that although edge represents a new frontier of digital infrastructure, telcos are struggling to monetize it. According to IDC's 2023 Telecom and IoT Survey, 32% of organizations in the Middle East, Türkiye, and Africa (META) are either already using edge computing or planning to use it in the next two years. Additionally, 44% of the survey respondents identified the need for faster response times for latency-sensitive applications as their prime reason for adopting edge computing.
