Cellnex: swiftly embracing digital infrastructure innovation
Adaptive Edge, Connected Vehicles and 5G are all becoming a reality for the Spanish leader
I had the pleasure of visiting Cellnex at their booth during the recent edition of Mobile World Congress in Barcelona and interviewing the firm’s Director of Innovation and Product Strategy, José Antonio Aranda. Our conversation revolved around 5G innovation, IoT, V2V, V2X and beyond, and it became clear that Cellnex is much more than a towerco and is quickly embracing digital infrastructure in all its facets. I also had the pleasure to test Cellnex’s emergency response solution, which (virtually) threw me at the very heart of a wildfire. Exciting times ahead, but not for the faint-hearted!
TowerXchange: What is Cellnex’s vision for edge computing? What applications will drive edge computing, and what do their requirements tell us about the infrastructure that must be deployed?
José Antonio Aranda, Director of Innovation and Product Strategy, Cellnex:
For us, edge computing represents a great opportunity to add value to our portfolio of sites.
