Vapor IO interconnects its edges, looks beyond towercos for growth

We have often argued that mobile operators and tower operators have a clear advantage in the early years of edge computing, because they have a large number of sites which could support a distributed cloud in parallel with a distributed mobile network, improving the returns from their locations. However, while architectures like ETSI Multi-access Edge Computing (MEC) started with the assumption that telco sites would be the logical place to deploy a public edge cloud, in fact the edge is proving to be far more complicated than that. Edges will range from metro data centers to in-home servers over time, and so the range of locations, and the companies that own them and built them out, will necessarily diversify. Telcos…
