Webscales encroach on telecom sector to realize value of digital economy
Trillions of dollars in economic value will be created globally from 5G, edge computing, AI and other new technologies during this decade, and TBR believes the world’s largest webscales (aka hyperscalers) will capture an outsized portion of this opportunity.
Webscales are building end-to-end digital ecosystems that transcend all aspects of people’s lives and deliver business transformation. As part of this overarching strategy, webscales are increasingly encroaching on the telecom domain so they can unlock value from the nexus of distributed computing and intelligent connectivity. This trend has significant, disruptive implications for telcos and ICT vendors.
