Looking beyond latency, which Edge applications hold the key to disruption

Abstract

A pragmatic talk about how Latency has stolen the limelight at the Edge technology roundtable, other very effective features are being overlooked and may hold the key to future applications. We look at these features from a technology breakdown and application perspective and give prospective customer insights on what is useful and what is not. We also look at the Telco or CSP view on Edge and how certain applications in 5 yrs may be the real money spinner, and latency might just be an afterthought.
