TBR estimates over 100,000 mini data center (edge) locations will be built out globally by CSPs through 2023. The primary driver of edge build-outs during the forecast period is CSPs’ network transformations, which entail migrating to a cloudified and virtualized network. In this new architecture, network functions will be virtualized and housed in NFVI, which is essentially data centers. Central office overhauls will be the primary edge compute location in the early years of the forecast period, with the build-out of the capillary system required to support revenue-generating low latency use cases expected to begin in the middle years of the forecast period.
