Description

"Operators should assess the ability of emerging edge-native cloud stacks to support a highly distributed fabric of edge computing nodes that is needed for 5G network functions such as the virtualised RAN and co-located enterprise applications."

The development of the cloud stack capabilities that are needed to support virtualised radio access networks (vRANs) and 'far' edge locations is a work in progress. This report lays out the criteria that operators should use to evaluate the contenders for this new edge-native cloud environment and provides a view of competitive positioning for edge-native cloud stack vendors.

Key questions answered in this report:

  • What does a reasonable framework for evaluating edge-native cloud stacks for vRAN and edge look like?
  • Which benchmarking criteria are likely to be important?
  • How do the key players in the edge-native cloud stack market compare with one another?
  • What should operators and cloud stack vendors do to mitigate risks and improve competitiveness in this context?

Companies included as case studies:

  • Avassa
  • Google
  • MobiledgeX
  • Nearby Computing
  • Red Hat
  • Robin.io
