Total Telecom recently partnered with Intel to produce "Delivering innovation for telco transformation", a 90 minute virtual event. The event brought together senior executives from Intel, a number of Intel’s I-CAP partners, and senior speakers from Vodafone to discuss four key themes: 5G and Communications; IoT and Edge; Cloud and Data Centre; and Artificial Intelligence.

The IoT and Edge theme was particularly well-received, with speakers Karen Truitt, Director, Global IoT Partner Sales, Intel, Ludovico Fassati, Head of IoT, Vodafone Americas, Paul Gallagher, VP Strategic Marketing, Airy3D and Ziv Livne, Chief Business Officer, TriEye joining a panel discussion on "Navigating the IoT ecosystem".

With Intel playing a key role in delivering IOT Edge solutions, Total Telecom editor Harry Baldock recently sat down with Karen Truitt to reflect on her recent discussion with industry leaders and discuss the power of partnership and collaboration. Karen kindly explained the role of Intel with regards IoT and the intelligent edge, key use cases and concepts in the field and the crucial role of AI, amongst other topics in a fascinating 10-minute interview.
