Re: www.akamai.com/products/serverless-computing-edgeworker-exaswitch is a brand
The more I thought this through the more it sounds like what Akamai has done with
the CDN business. Lumen is trying to become the Akamai of cloud computing.
" And by the way, ExaSwitch is IP, as I said. That's only ours to use, no one else has that. " - What he is describing is a brand name, the actual product/service can actually be replicated.
" Now, can others do it? “ I guess “ with the right level of investment. But if you look at the other major players in the space, they are either strictly commodity providers or they would fall into what I would call more legacy telecom, where their primary focus is on wireless cell use, and they're not investing in the space. So, we've got a great opportunity as a result. "
They may be 1st to the space but VZ & T, AWS, etc. will duplicate this. . should a real market for this product/service develop. Lumen has earlier admitted this in
previous conference calls.
If they can gain traction before the other guest arrive to the party they may make revenue to payoff some debts.
Akamai is already into edge computing as well, as others.
