Topic 1 - Welcome to the show. Tell everyone a little about yourself, you have been at the intersection of Network Virtualization, Cloud, and now Edge for quite some time.
Topic 2 - Let’s start at the start. What is your definition of Edge and what are some of the historical problems you see there? In this instance we are talking about network edge devices and not edge computing, correct?
Topic 3 - Tell us a little bit about device/identity security at the edge.
Topic 4 - When I think about device based AR/VR, I think about gaming as the primary use case that I’m exposed to as a consumer but we are talking about much more than that. What are some of the prominent use cases you are seeing and are trying to solve for?
Topic 5 - How does the increase in bandwidth at the transport layer, in particular worldwide 5G come in to play? Is this just a “bigger, faster pipe” or does it require a heavy implementation lift to adopt? How does world geography play into this? Some areas of the world are dominated with edge/handheld devices for almost all daily life now...
Topic 6 - We don’t talk about PaaS as much on the podcast lately but would it be safe to characterize MobiledgeX’s technology as a development PaaS for edge devices?
Topic 7 - Tells us about MobiledgeX’s upcoming initiative, Seamster. As I understand it this will bring vendors and developers together, correct?
