Vendor Landscape for Telco Edge Orchestration
Published: September 11, 2020 Content info: 17 Pages
Description

This IDC Market Perspective examines the vendor landscape for edge orchestration. Enterprises are asking telcos to deliver more than connectivity services. Currently, telcos primarily use IT infrastructure vendors and cloud providers to support their edge operations projects. However, the vast majority of providers lack end-to-end edge solutions orchestration. "According to an IDC Enterprise Survey in 2020, 40% of companies with edge projects or existing edge solutions ask telcos to provide value-added services beyond connectivity, said Martina Kurth, associate VP and head of telco research. "This is an unprecedented opportunity for telcos to step up in their role as mere edge infrastructure providers or systems integrators toward becoming edge-as-a service platform providers. In this context, a new breed of OSS/BSS software emerges. Edge orchestration solutions will help telcos to operationalize and monetize 5G and edge services. Market players emerge from the network equipment, cloud, telco OSS/BSS, and IT service layer infrastructure and enterprise space with many nimble start-up innovators."
