A sustainability strategy for automated, lights-out edge computing sites

Today the market opportunity surrounding 5G is estimated to be worth €1.3 trillion, while the benefits of increased automation and ultra-low latency connectivity are set to transform sectors from enterprise to transport and industrial manufacturing. However, with needs for higher throughput and a surge in the proliferation of data, IT professionals are beginning to deploy greater volumes of distributed IT across more geographically dispersed, and often unmanned, lights out sites – creating a challenge to do so securely, sustainably, and with both energy consumption and carbon emissions at the center of their strategy. This presentation will discuss a more digitized and automated future is dependent on increasing volumes of edge computing infrastructure and why to overcome the next great energy challenge at the edge, operators need a strategy to design, build, deploy and manage edge sites for greater sustainability.
