Matt Waldman's RSP NFL Scouting Glossary: Focus at the Catch Point vs. Contact with WR Parker Washington (Penn State)

Matt Waldman's RSP defines how he grades focus versus contact at the catch point for NFL Draft prospects with the help of a play from Penn State Wide Receiver Parker Washington.   Football Will Always Be A Collision Sport Even if tackle football goes the way of the dodo and the game evolves into a mashup of basketball and flag football, the fundamental aspects of the game will always include bodies moving with high intensity and often in close quarters. Even if unintentional, collisions are an inevitable part of the game. Although the vast majority of collisions take place at the line of scrimmage between linemen and ball carriers, pass catchers are recipients of the most violent collisions in the sport because routes and coverage demand players to build momentum into the point of impact. Pass catchers understand the potential of being on the receiving end of a hit that feels like a car wreck any time they attack a target. The ability to concentrate on the task of completing the catch before protecting oneself from an oncoming hit is the hallmark of a receiver with the physical and mental toughness to compete in the NFL. Even when the contact isn't as violent as a collision and instead, it's a surgically-placed reach, push, or pull at the ball, hands, or arms of the receiver, a pass catcher must display focus and comfort with defender contact at the catch point. Scenarios Requiring Focus The Rookie Scouting Portfolio has four basic scenarios where a receiver must display heightened focus and physical toughness to win the football. Tight Coverage: A defender has tight coverage on a receiver when he is making contact or he is close enough to make contact or extend his hand into the frame of the receiver. Contact to the Back: When a defender can slap, push, or hit the receiver from an indirect angle away from the receiver's field of vision that lands on the receiver's side, back, or the back of his legs. Contact to the Chest: When a defender can slap, push, or hit the receiver from a direct angle within the receiver's field of vision that lands on the receiver's chest, side, or front of his legs. Hard Shots: Catching the ball against collisions with violent impact have a higher degree of difficulty than other forms of contact. The RSP gives them their own category of value relative to contact that isn't as violent. A hit with notable force from the defender is violent contact and it's generated based on a combination of factors: Momentum heading into the collision point. An accurate strike that hits the opponent as intended. A strike hits through the target point of the opponent's body and not just onto the target. How the receiver or ballcarrier reacts to the hit doesn't define whether the hit is violent. We've seen ballcarriers bounce off violent hits as if they weren't violent at all.

He has invested in several companies that have gone on to stage IPOs, including Bazaarvoice (NASDAQ: BV); Coupa (NASDAQ: COUP); Guidewire Software (NYSE: GWRE); Marketo (NASDAQ: MKTO, acquired by Vista Equity Partners); Nutanix (NASDAQ: NTNX); Omniture (NASDAQ: OMTR, acquired by Adobe); RealPage (NASDAQ: RP); and Wayfair (NYSE: W).He also invested in several companies that have experienced M&A events, such as A Place for Mom (acquired by Warburg Pincus); AppDynamics (acquired by Cisco); Brightree (acquired by ResMed); Chef (acquired by Progress); Glassdoor (acquired by Recruit Holdings); Internet Brands (acquired by Hellman & Friedman); Kustomer (acquired by Meta); OpsGenie (acquired by Atlassian); Stella Connect (acquired by Medallia, Inc.); and VSS Monitoring (acquired by Danaher).

He is a board observer for InVision and Mattermost. Neeraj has also made seed investments in companies including 8fig, Dooly, PayStand, Proton, Reibus International and UserGems since 2020.QUOTESNeeraj on the challenge of timing your investment: "The challenge often is if you invest too early, you've got a good idea but you run out of money before the inflection point happens. And if you invest too late, somebody else captures the market. Having a sense of the timing is really important and like most things in life, luck has a lot to do with it."Neeraj on why both product and sales are crucial for success: "Ultimately, great companies are built on great products and great sales. You can kind of fake it for a while now on the sales side, but the longer you wait to put in the fundamentals, the harder it is to do later." Neeraj on how he chooses the companies that he backs: "Life's too short. If this isn't a person that I want to back from beginning to exit, they don't have the right coachability and skill to read my mind, it's probably time to move on and look at other investments."Check out John McMahon's book here: https://www.amazon.com/Qualified-Sales-Leader-Proven-Lessons/dp/0578895064

We started off our discussion with learning a bit more about Catchpoint, a digital experience monitoring platform which is helping companies with end-user monitoring, using both active & proactive as well as reactive monitoring methodologies. We then talked about the factors that are contributing to the increase in the growing popularity of observability. We also talked about the ‘holistic' approach to observability so that users can take actions based on the metrics observability tools provide them with. We also took a deep dive into the cultural or people and social side of observability which is as important as the tech aspect. We then moved to the core of the topic - SLO - as this interview was recorded as part of our coverage of SLOConf. What's the difference between SLO and SLA and why organizations should care about SLOs? We also asked her for recommendations or suggestions that organizations should follow as they implement SLOs. She also warned against some of the mistakes that organizations make with SLOs.

She is an official member of the Forbes Technology Council, and recently received the State of the Edge and Edge Computing World 2020 Edge Woman of the Year Award.In this interview, Fay discusses the origins of mimik’s hybrid edge cloud computing application development platform, and how it is enabling digital transformation and helping build a socially and economically sustainable applications ecosystem. Key Quotes“We are a big supporter of ecosystem. That's number one. We're basically saying that the opportunity is way bigger than one single company winning everything…We think this is an ecosystem play, and the opportunity is quite lucrative for everybody.”“We believe in the ecosystem that is like a Bazaar. Everybody defines their own set of things that they sell, and the consumer can pick and choose different parts of the product that they want from different entities and different companies. But the Bazaar itself goes by a set of regulations.”“The fast pace of the world is why restful APIs are so important, because there is so much we don't know. We don't know what we don't know. And I think that's one of the challenges of enterprises right now, it's almost like ‘Okay, I need to do my digital transformation. Where do I start?’"“Restful API has become so important and defining an architectural pattern of microservices has become so important, because that allows people to iterate on design, development, and delivery and integration with the rest of the world.”“When people say ‘What does mimik do?’ We say simply, we enable microservice development on any device. Because that is the key in terms of market adoption of digital solutions in a sustainable and systematic approach.”SponsorsOver the Edge is brought to you by the generous sponsorship of Catchpoint, NetFoundry, Ori Industries, Packet, Seagate, Vapor IO, and Zenlayer.The featured sponsor of this episode of Over the Edge is Seagate Technology.

This is where I see the most excitement…I think it's going to be a huge growth area and a highly disruptive area of innovation over the coming years.”“To succeed in a startup, you really need to look for a moment of disruption where the set of incumbents are not able to move as quickly as they might like; where there's a high total addressable market…that's what you can create a successful business out of.”“There's no substitute for culture. I think if you can establish a very effective cultural bar, if you can design your culture to the problem at hand, and if you hold yourselves to a very high standard, it becomes self-perpetuating…[It starts] with being very, very deliberate about the cultural roots.”“We are an organization that is in service of the community and in service of our customers, and what we build is honest technology.

We tend to think about edge purely from our customer's perspective. Because we are serving global companies, they are usually doing well in their home country, which is usually in the developed world. For example, if the United States is the core market, then the emerging markets will become the edge for them.” -David“All of those emerging markets are growing at a much faster speed and they have tons of people, so if you add those two things together and then couple that with the poor infrastructure, that means there's a huge opportunity for infrastructure providers to bring a good or decent digital experience to those users.”  -David“In emerging markets, it's really people using mobile internet more than wired connections because of the infrastructure issue. It's hard for them to build fiber, so you have wireless internet being so much more dominant. Over 90% of people who are on the internet use a mobile device to access it.” -Dalerie“I think once [5G] does roll out to emerging markets, it will have a much bigger impact than it would probably have here in the US…[but] really building and ramping that up is going to be a challenge.” -Dalerie“Cloud and edge [are] complementary. Cloud is always going to be here as the core, but as more and more applications are being consumed by users all over the world at the edge, you need the edge computing component to complement that.” -DalerieSponsorsOver the Edge is brought to you by the generous sponsorship of Catchpoint, NetFoundry, Ori Industries, Packet, Seagate, Vapor IO, and Zenlayer.The featured sponsor of this episode of Over the Edge is Zenlayer.

We still have problems with definitions and there is a lot of confusion. If I take the average person in the IT field and ask them, ‘What is the edge?’ The answer is generally linked to mobile phones and 5G. And while these are important components, they are not the beginning nor the end of it. So I think it's super interesting to be in this early phase and trying to bring more clarity to the fog in which we are moving.”“[Three areas] where we see a lot of edge-related demand right now are: In telco–they are busy deploying 5G, which requires an edge infrastructure for it to be performant. Then automotive–lots of evolution is happening in the auto industry…And then the general industrial environment–whether it's oil and gas or standard factories–is really, really keen on improving their processes by deploying edge infrastructure. But it doesn't stop there. We see opportunities happening in retail, in healthcare, in the public sector, it’s really, really varied.”“When you're dealing with open-source software, there is never a case where a single company offers that piece of software, there are generally multiple options, and that's another way of protecting you from having to redo everything from scratch. So that's why I think that the edge cannot be fruitful--cannot bring maximum benefit--without being open, because if you are not protected against those risks, you're going to have a very, very costly edge.”“The evolution of networking…is going to change a lot of things on how we approach the networking problem…The availability of network is going to become a problem of the past. If we look at 20 years from now, we have hope to have instantaneous communication--as in quantum--we could have instantaneous communication from any point to any point.”“The other evolution that is really interesting is how we are using processing power in more specialized units. The fact that you have DPUs available in SmartNICs and we can use those to do things in parallel to what the main CPU is doing. I believe that this specialization of resources is going to enable a new generation of software that provides for problem-solving quicker and much cheaper than ever before. We've seen that revolution happen through GPU's, but we are only at the beginning of this revolution, and it's going to go through all kinds of discoveries.”SponsorsOver the Edge is brought to you by the generous sponsorship of Catchpoint, NetFoundry, Ori Industries, Packet, Seagate, Vapor IO, and Zenlayer.The featured sponsor of this episode of Over the Edge is Vapor IO, the leader in edge computing.

Today’s episode features an interview between Matt Trifiro and Lee Hetherington, VP of Technology at Ori Industries.Lee has been in the infrastructure and networking space for over twenty years, and prior to joining Ori, spent the last five years setting strategy and focusing on edge and content delivery for two of the world’s largest hyper-scalers.In this interview, Lee dives deep into the technological challenges of building the next generation of cloud, illustrating his and Ori’s approach to solving the infrastructure, software, networking, and business problems of constructing the globally-distributed edge cloud of the future.Key Quotes“I don't want to go and build a hundred megawatt deployment in any city in the world. That just seems crazy to me. That’s not what the edge is all about. Amazon does a really good job of that. So does Microsoft, so does Google. Why would we try and compete in that business?What we're looking to try and do here is: you're a developer, you're running your application inside one of these hyper-scalers. Now you want closeness to the user and that's the thing that's important with edge. That's where we can come in…that's where edge and cloud kind of complement each other more than they compete with each other.”“People asked me before I joined Ori, “What are you doing? This is crazy, this edge computing thing. Are there really legit use cases that are actually going to drive this thing?” But I think we're in this really interesting position where…if you're a software developer, the envelope can really be pushed. We're no longer building monolithic applications. Things need to be more distributed…That's really where it's at.”“I think we all go through our careers and it's very rare to find an opportunity that's a legit greenfield. Ori represented a huge greenfield for me personally…Working on edge at Facebook really got me bitten by the bug of ‘How do we get the best user performance? How do you really distribute this thing? How do we serve billions and billions of users?’ It's a super interesting challenge. And a greenfield I just didn't feel like I could pass up.”“Building big things that live in clouds and use database-as-a-service and all these other things, that's great. But to actually create a great user experience and do all of the AR and VR things that people have been talking about for a while now, we really need to be embracing things like edge…I think that developers pushing the boundaries of what we can do with this kind of infrastructure is going to be really, really interesting.”“What it's about is driving an ecosystem. It's not about ‘How does Ori build this great closed-source thing and demand people come and spend lots of money with us.’ It's about how do we help these developers build applications which work on edge.” SponsorsOver the Edge is brought to you by the generous sponsorship of Catchpoint, NetFoundry, Ori Industries, Packet, Seagate, Vapor IO, and Zenlayer.The featured sponsor of this episode of Over the Edge is Catchpoint.

Today’s episode features an interview that took place live at the 2020 Edge Computing World Conference between Matt Trifiro and special guest Jonathan Seelig, Co-founder and CEO of Ridge and Co-Founder of Akamai Technologies.As a co-founder of Akamai, Jonathan is one of the true godfathers of edge computing, having enjoyed an extremely impressive two-plus decade career in technology as a founder, investor, and board member. In this interview, Jonathan and Matt discuss the past, present, and future of edge technology, starting with the origins of Akamai at MIT in 1997, through to Jonathan’s latest venture at Ridge, where he is building the distributed cloud platform that will power the next generation of cloud native applications.Key Quotes“One of the things that happened at Akamai is that, because this distributed infrastructure existed for content because the CDN was created, and because you could get scalability, reliability, and performance in ways that you never were going to be able to out of centralized infrastructure…Netflix happened and Hulu happened and online gaming happened.  And even if some of those companies were never my customers, the reason that those capabilities exist in the marketplace is because the CDN was created. It completely changed what entrepreneurs and what content owners believed to be possible.”“One of the things that we were observing in 2018 is that there just didn't seem to be a lot of really good thinking about how to create very highly distributed infrastructure for compute…The argument that we're making at Ridge is that applications that are going to really change the world going forward…are going to care a lot about geography and care a lot about being highly distributed.”“I can't imagine that if we sit down and have a conversation five years from now about the cloud, that three companies will have 100% market share of the industry. We've never seen an infrastructure company become a full monopoly…The idea that we're going to have one infrastructure provider that will be able to do everything that a company needs them to do all over the world in every single location just doesn't make a lot of sense to me.”“Five years from now, I would imagine that ten milliseconds of latency for the vast majority of users in the world is sort of de rigueur…And then we'll talk about how hard it is to get single digit milliseconds of latency and how that's going to be 2025’s edge cloud.”“None of us are going to solve this on our own…for these ideas to work, this is an ecosystem play. One of the things that makes the hyperscale clouds so powerful is the ecosystems that they have developed around their platform…You have to pull together as an ecosystem as opposed to a single vendor. That, to me, is the thing that's going to require the most advancement for this to become more mainstream and more accessible over time.”SponsorsOver the Edge is brought to you by the generous sponsorship of Catchpoint, NetFoundry, Ori Industries, Packet, Seagate, Vapor IO, and Zenlayer.The featured sponsor of this episode of Over the Edge is Zenlayer.

As they invest in edge, it’s about what can they do differently and how do they make it more efficient…looking at ways to automate at the edge to be able to do things that they've done before, but haven't done as quickly or as efficiently.""Over the next 18 months, I think we're going to see the evolution of the network edge a lot more. At least in the open source community, a lot of applications and platforms are being developed that are going to help move things forward, especially evolving from some legacy platforms and seeing the data move from the data center out to the edge.""We've been in the edge business for quite a few years now and I see the next 18 months just starting to explode. Customers that are going to either implement [edge solutions] at their customer sites or they're going to be using network edge.""A lot of devices that are generating data typically were analog, now have moved into the digital age. So you now have the need to be able to collect and process that data at the edge…And you do that by developing a whole new product set….so you can run the applications that you typically run in the data center, but now you can run them at the edge.""The edge and the cloud and the data center and the mini clouds, it’s all going to be part of an overall solution. You need to look at the application that's going to be running or set of applications or platforms and what are the requirements for each. Some things will operate in the data center, some will operate in the cloud, and some will be at the edge.

A lot of people think, ‘to do edge computing, I’ve got to wait for 5G. There'll be no edge until there's 5G.’ But some of the very first edge compute was put in with ethernet wired connections…The second problem is that everybody has a different definition of the edge. My definition of the edge is if you take one more step, you fall off a cliff. That’s the easy one.""The perceived value of edge compute in the mobile network is with the cloud vendor, not with the mobile operator, and I think that's a problem. It doesn't mean they're not needed. The mobile operators are needed, but from a mobile operator perspective, their customer is the cloud vendor. It is not the enterprise or the end-user…In this respect, I hate to say it, but they are being pushed into an edge bit-pipe relationship where they're going to rely on the cloud guys to deliver that business to them.""When we've seen things take off in technology, they're one of two things: They're either huge volume, mass market, low cost. Or they're very specific, super high requirements, and expensive. It takes a while to build the middle ground.""The operator will tell you it's the connection that's the value. The application developer says it's the application. The edge compute guy says it’s the servers. But the whole solution is the application, some compute, and connectivity. But the CIO looks at the entire solution. The answer is we need all three.""I think the problem with edge compute is, it's very difficult to pick winners and losers right now. Some operators are going to be successful with their strategy and others will not even be involved. So picking winners and losers is difficult.""I think people who've got a very rigid view of ‘the edge is here, and I'm going to do this and sell it to these people,’ that's a problem. You've got to be much more fluid and say, ‘to this customer, the edge is over there, for this customer, the edge is over here, and for this customer, it's actually completely different.’ You’ve got to be really fluid and flexible, probably like we haven't been before as an industry.

Prior to Federated Wireless, he served as Vice President of Network Development and led the Network Vision modernization project at Sprint Corp.In this interview, Iyad discusses CBRS, shared spectrum, and the massive potential for disruption and innovation they represent, as well as the interesting intersections between CBRS and edge computing.Key Quotes“The most thrilling part of CBRS is that it truly is free. It's really democratizing wireless access.”“This is like Airbnb. Don't sell the house, I'll rent the room for you tomorrow. That's basically what we're doing. We make the spectrum available immediately, which is great for economics and great for innovation.”“When we go from a few people building technology on spectrum to thousands and thousands if not millions of deployments, the amount of innovation we’re going to get in the software technology ecosystem is going to go through the roof…Innovation is going to take off. That's democratization in the best way possible."“The U.S. will become the most innovative, by far, in creating solutions and applications and technology for wireless, because they’ll be able to get a thousand enterprises or a thousand companies all innovating at the same time.”“At the end of the day, we're a software company that sits on top of an open ecosystem with a bunch of partners built around a very, very innovative spectrum model that's enabled by a really innovative government. The FCC and the DOD and NTIA and the White House--what they've done here over the last 10+ years in terms of creating this innovation model has really been first in the world.”“All we really do right now is facilitate the management and enable the system.

And when we say edge innovation, we don't mean edge like edge computing, we mean like innovation around the edges, so innovation where you don't need to ask permission.”“We have a very strong belief at NetFoundry that for us to be successful and for these ideas to be successful, it's an ecosystem play. We need to be out talking to people and working with people in the edge space.”“To me, it's better when you don't talk about IoT…In other words, as it gets to the point where you're not talking about IoT itself, but you're just talking about things that are good ideas and should be done, that’s when we're really getting somewhere.”“Networking is a huge part of any digital transformation or any kind of distributed application. It's a central part of the issue, so we want the network to be application-centric. We want the application developer to control the network and embed the network directly in the app.”“I hope we continue down this democratization path, redefining networking in order to enable edge innovation and getting the world to the point where people who don't necessarily have access to tons of money or the ability to roll out massive, distributed systems, can start getting that in their hands.”SponsorsOver the Edge is brought to you by the generous sponsorship of Catchpoint, NetFoundry, Ori Industries, Packet, Seagate, Vapor IO, and Zenlayer.The featured sponsor of this episode of Over the Edge is NetFoundry.

And we can know–not quite everything–but a lot about everything. And it's beautiful.”“IoT makes the invisible, visible. So you can see things that you haven't seen before.”“Think of IoT as the physical infrastructure that ties the internet, combined with the physical infrastructure needed on the things themselves. And then you add AI to it, which is the analysis and the synthesis of the data that's going to be coming in. That's the soul. AI is the soul, IoT is the body, and then you have this wonderful cloud of information that is so transformative.”“I want to make it easy for people to get excited about IoT, because this is really a big deal. It's as big as the invention of broadband or bringing mobile connectivity to everybody. You get all these new applications and we're just scratching the surface, and it's going to be awesome. Unless we utterly screw it up, which we totally are.”“I don't know if we're ever going to get to the ‘cloud version’ of the edge. When you're thinking about computing at the edge, you can't expect the wolves to all behave gracefully. So we have to build more safeguards in, which is going to be less efficient, which the cloud people hate. And the people talking to the cloud people are like, ‘it's really important.’ There's a dichotomy there that I think is under appreciated.”“The cloud thinking is ‘how can we form a monolith, how can we build an application that can run across a bunch of these servers?’ In IoT, I think we're going to come into this realization that what we really need are a bunch of individualized, highly personalized, customized applications. So the opposite of a monolith.”“Right now, especially when we talk about privacy and security, we're having this debate over convenience versus our potential loss of our individual liberties.

Today’s episode features an interview between Matt Trifiro and Mahadev Satyanarayanan, also known as Satya. Satya is the Carnegie Group Professor of Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University, and one of the true Godfathers of Edge Computing. Over the course of his multi-decade research career, Satya has pioneered many advances in distributed systems, mobile computing, and IoT, and in 2009 he co-authored “The Case for VM-based Cloudlets in Mobile Computing,” the groundbreaking research paper that led to the emergence of Edge.In this interview, Satya shares how he started thinking about distributed computing infrastructure for mobile devices back in 1993, how much of his vision has come true in the decades since, and his views on the future of cloud, edge, IoT, and much more.Key Quotes“In 1997 we said, given that [the compute capability of] mobile devices is always going to be a challenge, how do we get substantial applications that require compute-intensive processing to run on a mobile device? The answer is to offload computation to the infrastructure. We were the first to demonstrate that capability in a published paper."“When it comes to user experience, people have learned that it's not the mean that matters, it is the tail. Human user experience is greatly overweighted by a few negative experiences. You may have one hour on a zoom call, and 58 minutes of it may be excellent, but you will remember the two minutes that were miserable. This is generally true for augmented reality, and for all of these other [latency-sensitive] use cases.”“It's useless to deploy 5G without edge computing. The truth is 5G is only going to improve your last mile quality. That's it.”“How much end-to-end latency is acceptable is very much a function of the application. But it's a two-way street. The applications that get written depend on what today's technology can offer…If the application's demand gets too far ahead of what the technology can offer, then the application will die because it's not viable.”“The ultimate beneficiaries of edge computing should make strategic investments that incentivize the creation of edge-native applications, and apply a different success criteria from what is traditionally applied by venture capitalists...That investment is valuable even without a hockey stick growth curve, because you are creating long term demand for the core product that you're creating, which is edge computing itself.”SponsorsOver the Edge is brought to you by the generous sponsorship of Catchpoint, NetFoundry, Ori Industries, Packet, Seagate, Vapor IO, and Zenlayer.The featured sponsor of this episode of Over the Edge is Catchpoint.

You need to continuously process and analyze streaming data to get continuous intelligence to make your organization more responsible. But the big change is that, whereas before you could reasonably think about big data as a way to store stuff and then analyze it, now you can't.”“The cloud has been tremendously successful really because of two big things. One is rest, which is stateless computing, and the other one is databases…But the problem with that is that stateless computing is a million times slower than the CPU. A million times slower. That means the difference between hours versus milliseconds in terms of getting results."“In this era, we have data flows which are boundless. They never stop. And the data within them is of ephemeral value. So you can't store it and get to it later because later it’s useless. What you care about is that some representation can predict what's going to happen next, but you don't care about the past. So we have ephemeral data value and infinite data, and you need to compute on it continuously…and that's a whole new approach, algorithmically and mathematically.”“We shouldn't apply AI to situations where the marginal cost of being wrong is high…if the cost of being wrong is very high, like somebody dies, just don't do it. But if the cost of being wrong is marginal who cares? Like my Uber may stop at a red light, who cares? Right? We're still better off…There are tons of opportunities for making the world better, where if you're wrong, you don't make it worse.”SponsorsOver the Edge is brought to you by the generous sponsorship of Catchpoint, NetFoundry, Ori Industries, Packet, Seagate, Vapor IO, and Zenlayer.The featured sponsor of this episode of Over the Edge is Ori Industries.

And this internet requires a new cloud to power it, one that will be able to deliver it at scale. At Ori, we are building the new cloud that will allow us to power and scale this new internet.”“If you are familiar with the telecom world, you know that there is a very real opportunity right now, and my focus is to seize that opportunity. We are working with the telecoms industry because we know it, I've worked with them for a very long time. I've worked with them from the outside in wholesale, and now in federation, and all these things that we can apply to edge computing. I'm applying my previous knowledge of that space and it's working, we're gaining a lot of traction.”“I think the value today is securing the developers because building an edge native developer community is a big thing. We're all working towards that in the end, because that's how we secure the demand for the market, and the moment we capitalize on that demand, then we can scale the market.”“For edge to work well, especially in the telecom space, you need a lot of infrastructure changes in place, and 5G is driving those changes. This is where I see the value of 5G for edge: it accelerated a lot of these changes on the legacy networks, and allows us to start running workloads exactly where we need them to run on the network in an efficient, distributed, and clever way.”“I think soon the biggest trend in edge is going to be intelligence. How do you make these platforms more intelligent? Because in public clouds today, yes they are building a lot of products that are increasingly distributed, but when you look at this distributed infrastructure over a vast geography, the game is different.”SponsorsOver the Edge is brought to you by the generous sponsorship of Catchpoint, NetFoundry, Ori Industries, Packet, Seagate, Vapor IO, and Zenlayer.The featured sponsor of this episode of Over the Edge is Zenlayer.

Today’s episode features an interview between Matt Trifiro and Sarah Beaudoin, Head of Customer Advocacy and Early Stage Marketing at ZEDEDA. As an early-stage marketer at ZEDEDA, Sarah is tackling the problems of creating awareness and adoption in a burgeoning industry.In this interview, Sarah discusses her approach to solving those problems, as well as the present and future use cases and challenges of IoT deployment at the edge.Key Quotes“In terms of edge and where we are today, there are a lot of unknowns. There's no prescription for ‘here's how you need to be successful at the edge’…But what we do know is that there are certain principles, like building it on an open architecture so you've got the flexibility to be able to work with whatever hardware and applications and cloud you need to work with.”“When it comes to early-stage marketing, what we're doing is a lot of education across the board in terms of what is possible. It's about sharing examples of what customers are doing successfully, and sharing what people are trying to do– being a conduit so people can understand what else is out there.”“From an early stage marketing perspective, it's very much about helping you understand what's possible. Here are the things you need to think about that are going to help you, not just today, but that can help you make sure that whatever you're putting in place today is going to expand to what you needed two years.”“One thing that we're seeing across the board at the edge is that no single company is going to just own this space. This is an ecosystem of players that are going to work together to build solutions.”“Latency always comes up as the number one reason why people think we need edge computing…But latency is not the number one issue for any of our customers. They're doing it because of bandwidth. They're doing it because they have too much data to send all of it to the cloud. It's too expensive. It takes too long. They need to deal with that data at the edge.”“The edge has to be open…we believe very strongly in the power of open source and the fact that the edge–because it is so diverse in use cases and applications and hardware–it has to have an open foundation.”SponsorsOver the Edge is brought to you by the generous sponsorship of Catchpoint, NetFoundry, Ori Industries, Packet, Seagate, Vapor IO, and Zenlayer.The featured sponsor of this episode of Over the Edge is Packet, an Equinix company.

If you can make it faster, better, cheaper, and you make it easy to consume, you're going to do well. That’s the mission that Vapor is on– to fix the architectural issues with the guts of the internet.”“I think there are three things [that open hardware does]: lower the technical barrier of entry on the technical front, you increase the pace of innovation, and you democratize or commoditize those things that really have no value.”SponsorsOver the Edge is brought to you by the generous sponsorship of Catchpoint, NetFoundry, Ori Industries, Packet, Seagate, Vapor IO, and Zenlayer.The featured sponsor of this episode of Over the Edge is Vapor IO, the leader in edge computing.

Today’s episode features an interview between Matt Trifiro and Alex Reznik, Distinguished Technologist at Hewlett Packard Enterprise, and Chair of ETSI’s MEC ISG.Alex literally wrote the book on Multi-Access Edge Computing, and as Chair of ETSI MEC he is helping to pioneer the industry standards for enabling the Intelligent Edge.In this interview, Alex explains the role of standards bodies like ETSI, how standards drive market adoption, and why they are important for the future of the edge intersection between telcos, cloud providers, and developers.Key Quotes“In the final state of this MEC public edge computing game, there [will be] a presence from most of the major cloud providers in most of the operator networks.”“If telcos are going to succeed in capturing value, they will have standards in a space where ETSI MEC plays. It doesn't mean they have to adopt ETSI MEC standards, but they will have to agree on a set of standards in that space. Our value is, we're the only standard right now that plays in that space. So you can either go and form a new group and start from scratch, or you can go with ETSI MEC.”“With 5G, specifically because so many of the 5G applications need the edge, and edge means location, [the telcos] have leverage. Amazon and Microsoft and lots of other people have to talk directly to the telcos. That's real leverage. Now what are they going to do with it?”“Show the operators the money. They want to see the money. They don't want to see a strategy talk about how much money the hyperscalers are making on the cloud and what portion of that market they can address and what the TAM for edge computing is...they want to see the money in six months.”SponsorsOver the Edge is brought to you by the generous sponsorship of Catchpoint, NetFoundry, Ori Industries, Packet, Seagate, Vapor IO, and Zenlayer.The featured sponsor of this episode of Over the Edge is Seagate Technology.

Today’s episode features an interview between Matt Trifiro and Colby Synesael, Senior Equity Research Analyst at Cowen and CompanyColby has been covering the communications infrastructure and telecom services industries as a senior research analyst since 2006, and recently co-authored Cowen’s extensive Ahead of the Curve report on edge computing and the future of the internet. In this interview, Colby offers his unique perspective on the investment decisions that are powering the growth of edge infrastructure, the elements that will enable True 5G, and how the pieces work together to usher in the fourth industrial revolution.Key Quotes“While edge computing is not dependent on 5G, 5G is dependent on edge computing…The edge infrastructure that is obviously tied to edge computing is going to be required to enable what we refer to as ‘True 5G.’” “When you take all three of those aspects--the bandwidth speed that’s north of a hundred megabits, the latency that’s sub-10 milliseconds, and the massive machine connectivity or IOT—that, combined, is the recipe to enable True 5G.”“The beauty of True 5G is it's going to enable a lot of new businesses to leverage a wireless network beyond the phone that's never really happened before…And when we talk about True 5G, that's really what we're referring to, and to make that happen, absolutely a physical edge infrastructure is going to have to be out there.”“With these three key attributes–the speed, the latency, and that massive connectivity–ultimately it enables what many people refer to as the fourth industrial revolution. And that's going to create a whole new set of market opportunities that are going to happen across just about every industry.”“When you think about the internet in its current iteration, it's really been built for humans…This next iteration of the internet–which very much is tied to edge computing and 5G– is actually going to be built more for machines…It’s going to unleash this huge opportunity, and that altogether is what we refer to as the fourth industrial revolution.”“The way I think about it [edge] is that it's not an explicit definition. It's not black and white. It's an evolution. It's a concept. And we're already starting to see that happening today. And at some point…we're going to see an inflection point where there finally is enough infrastructure that you start to see some of these newer use cases start to come to market.”  “I don't think of the edge as cannibalizing the cloud. I think of the edge as expanding the TAM–the total addressable market–for the cloud...You're not cannibalizing the demand, you're augmenting it.”SponsorsOver the Edge is brought to you by the generous sponsorship of Catchpoint, NetFoundry, Ori Industries, Packet, Seagate, Vapor IO, and Zenlayer.The featured sponsor of this episode of Over the Edge is Ori Industries.
