Edge Computing and 5G | Checksum and Tomversations: Special Episode

The edge is the new frontier for IT. Whether we’re exploring the bandwidth savings we get from using content delivery networks (CDNs) at the beginning of the edge journey or we’re moving compute resources closer to data collection, we are leaving the data center behind. New bandwidth capabilities and increased processing power is causing a revolution for providers and application developers. What does this mean for you?

Stephen Foskett and Tom Hollingsworth are both teaming up for this special episode to bring their perspectives to the discussion. Networking, compute, storage, and IoT are all important aspects to keep in mind when you’re evaluating how your organization will take advantage of edge resources. Those same aspects are critical for you to understand when you start discussing the value of edge with the providers that will try to convince you it’s the most important shift in IT since the last huge shift.

Join us for this joint Checksum and Tomversations episode dedicated to answering the questions you might have about edge computing and edge networking and how it ties into your future in IT.
