Technology Innovation: The Edge Materialises
Over the last three years the Edge has been discussed and debated all over the world. The scale of opportunity is well understood but the question remains as to how these deployments will materialize as an end-to-end Edge solution and what does the corresponding revenue model look like.
Dean Nelson, Founder and Chairman of the Infrastructure Masons, sits down with Jeffrey DeCoux, Chairman of the Autonomy Institute, to discuss what this next step will look like and what it means for the future of the Edge.
Panel: Spotlight on Africa
The Africa data center market size by investment was valued at USD 2 billion in 2020 and is expected to reach USD 5 billion by 2026. According to a recent report by the ADCA, Africa needs 1000MW and 700 facilities to meet growing demand and bring the rest of the continent onto level terms with the capacity and density of South Africa.
Our panel of regional experts will discuss the drivers for growth, how digital infrastructure is being implemented and the opportunities presented by this growth.
