09 – The Edge From a Constraint Device to the Cloud – Are We Ready to Deliver Applications to All Those Different Levels of Edge?

Posted on Thursday, Apr 22, 2021

Time for a new episode! What’s happening on the edge from a hardware point of view? That’s what we wanted to know from our guest, Michael Clegg, VP & GM 5G, Embedded/IOT at Supermicro. From him, we learn why we see such a big growth in private 5G networks and what requirements are necessary to fulfil the big promise of 5G’s low latency. Moving to a remote environment will be challenging and come with higher costs of access and unreliability of the network. How to manage such a complex virtualized network? Plus, an exciting outlook: will there be a battle over the best spot at the edge?
