Alongside a review of the broad ecosystem of edge computing, the report examines the various approaches being taken by key stakeholders.
Moreover, an assessment of expected market revenues between 2021 and 2026 by region and by type of stakeholders.
An Excel file accompanies the report, covering some hundred publicly available implementations of edge computing.
A few key figures:
- Edge computing is an enabler for industries and businesses digital transformation. It’s getting a battlefield in the IT and telecom landscape. According to IDATE Digiworld, the global revenues from edge computing solutions are expected to grow by 49% between 2021 and 2026 driven by industrials and hyperscalers.
- The market of edge computing is shaping up but no killer app is identified yet. IDATE Digiworld benchmarked 174 deployments as of April 2021 with a predominance of PoCs and tests.

FTTR is expected to disruptively transform home broadband experience
The outbreak of pandemic has led to an inevitable surge in the use of digital technologies and placed broadband networks as an key enabler for various digital applications in home, including teleconference, online education, 4K / 8K ultra-high definition video, VR / AR games, etc. Since then the typical requirements of the connected home have evolved. An 8K video stream requires at least 150 Mbps of bandwidth, which is four times more than 4K. Applications such as live streaming, online classes, and live streaming require very low latency, typically 50 milliseconds or less. In addition, home broadband connections need to be capable of supporting multi-service concurrent scenarios. High-quality Internet has become an indispensable part of people's lives, work, and entertainment. Fiber optic cable is the most preferred transmission medium in networks for its superior bandwidth, faster speed, and enhanced reliability. Fiber to the room (FTTR), which extends fiber connectivity from the "last mile" to the "last meter", offers customers a premium full fiber connection, enabling to meet network requirements of various home applications.
