Building edge virtual screen

Network infrastructure has been pushed to the limits as nationwide "lock-downs" see an explosion in cloud usage, video conferencing and other bandwidth hungry applications. Many fear that the internet in its current form may break and that a more decentralised approach to digital infrastructure is quickly needed. Edge is here and now, but such is the scale of the infrastructure requirement that there will be many collaborators.

DCD brings together the top thinkers and doers on "edge" for a free-to-view virtual conference to discuss the evolution of edge ecosystems in different parts of the world, the new software and IT stacks in development, the infrastructure layer and who the front-runners will be. The agenda will look at the impact of 5G, mobile edge cloud, and the effects of data gravity and velocity on the new network architecture.

With 16 free-to-view webinars being broadcast May 27-28, sessions will span both European and North American time zones to ensure that this is a truly global conversation, and that you can access our expert thought-leadership from wherever you are in the world. Hosted on our fully interactive platform you’ll be able to participate in live Q&A, audience polls and thought-leadership sessions with over 1,000 other "virtual" delegates.
