This panel discussion will debate the current market dynamics for 5G edge computing and the broader edge computing competition. Specifically, recent developments point to a market landscape where webscale players are taking advantage of their lean operations and global presence to build capabilities that compete directly against telco operators. Webscale players are displaying a vision to pursue new value creation in 5G and edge computing, but they do not necessarily have the penetration and distribution of networks that Communication Service Providers (CSPs) have.

In this panel session, attendees will:

  • Understand how the entry of webscale players in telco impacts the current telco-specific competitive landscape
  • Acquire an understanding on the characteristics of webscale business models vis-à-vis telco business models
  • Learn how CSPs can leverage capabilities and technology coming from webscale players to accelerate 5G adoption and launch new-growth services
