The Edge Data Center: Building the Connected Future


5G and related digital revolutions will require tens of thousands of edge data centers. This book tells you how they work and how to get them built.

We are in the middle of the edge computing revolution. Responding to demand for lower latency, telcos and others are moving servers and storage closer to end users—away from the “core” to “the edge.” This requires the deployment of many thousands of tiny edge data centers.

The edge is a big, growing business. Driven by 5G, connected vehicles, and industrial automation, the “edge economy” is projected to reach $4.1 trillion by 2030, with investment in edge data centers set to exceed $140 billion by 2028.

What exactly is an edge data center? This book explains what they are and how they work. It’s early in the edge computing life cycle, so there’s time to get prepared for what’s coming.

If you work in an industry that’s transforming through mobility, or any field that will leverage the edge for competitive advantage, this book will help you understand how the edge data center advances your strategic agenda.
