Telecom Edge Compute Market Forecast

Edge computing has become a major area of interest and investment in the telecom industry, driven by the need to improve user experiences as well as enable and support new business models. Communication service providers (CSPs) are also keen to invest in edge computing as a cost-efficiency solution, with 5G as well as the cloudification and virtualization of networks driving the build-out of edge compute environments.

TBR’s Telecom Edge Compute Market Forecast, which is global in scope, details edge compute spending trends among CSPs, which include telecom operators, cable operators and webscales. This research includes current-year market sizing and a five-year forecast by multiple edge compute market segments and geographies.
