The definitive edge computing event to take place February 24, 2019
BARCELONA, Spain–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Vapor IO, creators of the Kinetic Edge and also the leading provider of tower-connected edge colocation and interconnection services, today announced Edgecon Barcelona, a one-day gathering of the world’s top edge computing executives, as they network on a yacht adjacent to this year’s Mobile World Congress. Edgecon brings together industry leaders for visionary presentations, brainstorming, and high-impact networking. Following successful events in Aspen, Las Vegas, Barcelona and Los Angeles, Edgecon Barcelona 2019 is hosted by Vapor IO and sponsored by Seagate Technology and Pluribus Networks. It takes place February 24, 2019, in advance of Mobile World Congress.
“Coming fast on the heels of our recently announced Kinetic Edge Alliance, Edgecon Barcelona will be where Alliance members start doubling-down on their engagements with telco operators,” said Matt Trifiro, CMO of Vapor IO. “The telco ecosystem is perfectly poised to help accelerate the worldwide rollout of edge computing and will benefit from the new revenue streams and applications enabled by the edge. Edgecon is where these deals will happen.”
Edgecon travels the world delivering a unique and intimate gathering of the most visionary builders, dealmakers, and decision-makers in edge computing. Edgecon Barcelona will coincide with Mobile World Congress and will include participation from top public cloud providers, IoT practitioners, infrastructure owners, wireless operators and edge computing developers. Together, attendees will talk real-world deployment of edge computing, define requirements for early deployments and meet potential partners. Edgecon events have led to industry-wide alliances such as The Kinetic Edge Alliance, where leading software, hardware, networking and integration companies committed to driving the broad adoption of compute, storage, access and interconnection at the edge of the cellular network, simplifying edge computing for the masses.
