"Tower companies, operators and electricity substation owners could dominate the industrial edge but are not yet addressing the market."


Next-generation use cases such as drones and autonomous vehicles will require a denser infrastructure of edge data centres than is available today. There are three locations that could provide new industrial edge co-location: cell towers, substations and central offices. Their owners need to understand and invest in the public industrial edge to avoid missing out on new revenue streams.

This report provides:

  • analysis of the emerging industrial public edge market
  • insights on the use cases that are appearing at the public edge and their requirements
  • evaluation of the suitability of substation/exchange/cell tower sites as public industrial edge data centres.
