Network operators will play a pivotal role in the creation of new revenue services from edge computing


India [June 5, 2020] Vertiv (NYSE: VRT), a global provider of critical digital infrastructure and continuity solutions, together with technology analyst firm Omdia, released a new report on the implications of the shift to edge computing for telecom operators and the best tactics and strategies for capitalising on edge growth. 


The report – Telcos and edge computing: opportunity, threat or distraction? –  reveals that growth in edge computing could generate new revenue opportunities for operators. Omdia, formerly Ovum, says specifically that mobile and wireline operators can build a platform for the development of edge services while saving massively on costs by combining existing cell tower networks with central offices and aggregation points such as edge data centres.


“The growth at the edge opens opportunities for telecom providers to develop new services related to 5G, IoT and other innovative technologies,” said Gary Niederpruem, chief strategy and development officer of Vertiv. “Operators will need partners with international reach, as well as a breadth of solutions and services, to support them on their edge journey.”


The Omdia  report also reveals that edge growth should open up new areas of competition, with 36% of those surveyed believing that network operators will be most important in the creation of new revenue services from edge. Application developers (30%) and public cloud providers (25%) are also seen as key edge players.



The Omdia report specifically addresses the role Prefabricated Modular Data Centres (PFM) will likely play in helping telecoms operators deliver future edge infrastructure, with the PFM market forecast to grow from $1.2 billion in 2018 to $4.3 billion in 2023. This projected growth is driven by telcos and the growth of edge computing, as well as overall growth by cloud service providers, the report highlights.


Alongside rapid deployment, energy efficiency is also a key concern for network operators. In a recently published update to a landmark 2019 survey commissioned by Vertiv – 2020: Same Hopes, More Fears – technology analyst firm 451 Research identified that the energy costs associated with edge and 5G connectivity remain a serious concern for operators.



To address these evolving needs, Vertiv is constantly developing new infrastructure, software and services to optimise energy use across the network together with telco partners and customers. The company’s efforts in this area have been recognized by the GSMA through a verified case study of Vertiv’s work with Telefónica, allowing both companies to be shortlisted as finalists for Best Mobile Innovation for Climate Action at the GSMA Global Mobile Awards (GLOMO).
