The edge is turning out to be more than we envisioned. Collaboration across the industry is accelerating the pace of transformation and compounding benefits to customers at a rapid rate. Network operators are seeing value in shared service offerings by interoperating their edge platforms and delivering a rich set of experiences to customers. In this session, we will hear Telefonica talk about the Federated Telco Edge Cloud, an initiative led by several operators, and their vision for shared service offerings.
