To make all parts of edge infrastructure work it is important that neutral players bring everybody together
All successful infrastructures thrive with the development of many different parties as part of the whole
We strongly belief that edge infrastructure needs places where parties have a neutral ground to meet each other
Specialism of all parties involved will make for a better edge infrastructure
Building a community of people and businesses that together define how edge evolves
