Inflection Points Podcast Season 3, Episode 2 – What’s the Future of the Intelligent Enterprise Edge?


We're excited to present the second episode of season three of the Inflection Points podcast, sponsored by the Office of the CTO at Extreme Networks!

Guided by Allie and Brendan, this refreshed season is set to investigate pioneering subjects shaping the future of technology, including AR/VR, the Intelligent Enterprise Edge, AI/ML, 6G cellular, Wi-Fi 7, and Digital Twins.

In this season’s second episode, titled “What’s the Future of the Intelligent Enterprise Edge,” special guest Justin Hurst, Head of the Office of the CTO of Extreme Networks for the Asia-Pacific region, joins our hosts. Together, they embark on a deep dive into the future of the Intelligent Enterprise Edge, exploring how intelligent infrastructure and AI systems hold the potential to revolutionize urban living by scaling up to develop smart cities. 

Paraphrasing Justin on the topic of Intelligent Enterprise Edge: “In the past, we’ve seen a pendulum-like shift between centralization and decentralization. However, the current trend seems to be taking a different direction. Instead of witnessing a significant move away from centralized computing, like the cloud, towards the edge, we’re observing a more hybrid approach. The driving force behind edge computing lies in its use cases. The services provided are not necessarily standalone in nature but are designed to augment capabilities or bring edge-specific features that aren’t feasible with central compute, while still relying on it significantly.”
