MEC is more than a tool to lower latency. It is an enabler for services that are specific to a location but are served over multiple access networks, both fixed and mobile. In this context, MEC is a powerful driver that accelerates the convergence of fixed and mobile networks. In this conversation, Mansoor Hanif, Director of Converged Networks and Innovation at BT, tells us how this is shaping the network evolution at BT in the UK.

To support processing and storage at the edge, operators need hardware that is scalable, cost effective and flexible. The requirements are variable, driven by a wide range of environments and performance targets. In this conversation, we talk about how hardware designed for the edge can meet these challenges with Paul Stevens at Advantech.

Moving processing and storage to the edge is crucial to delivering the quality of experience that real-time applications require. It also enables the rollout of new revenue-generating applications and services. In this conversation, Linsey Miller, VP of marketing at Artesyn, shares her perspective on MEC, and tells us what she learned during the initial work on edge computing.

Video is the traffic type that benefits the most from edge processing and storage, both in fixed and mobile networks. And increasingly they both share platforms and traffic management tools. Edge computing will accelerate this trend. We explore these topics with Dan Sahar, Co-founder and VP of Product Marketing at Qwilt.

MEC gets ready for the enterprise and IoT. A conversation with Caroline Chan, General Manager, 5G Infrastructure Division, Network Platform Group, Intel. Virtualization gives network operators – both fixed and mobile ones – flexibility on where to locate processing and storage within their networks. And they have started to move beyond the centralized cloud and place some function at the edge, or near the edge. Multiple-access edge computing, or MEC, is one initiative that provides a standards-based framework to operators and vendors to enable edge computing. We talked to Caroline Chan, the General Manager within the 5G Infrastructure Division in the Network Platform Group at Intel, about the impact of the move towards the edge of the network.

Spectrum as a shared resource. Light-licensing models for 3.5 GHz band open new ways to deploy and operate networks. This is a presentation I gave in Bellevue WA last week - preliminary thoughts on 3.5 GHz / CBRS: what it means in the US and in the rest of the world, business models and deployment models. I will be glad to hear your thoughts as well as I keep working on this.

MEC and other edge computing initiatives call our attention to the relevance of location of network functions in determining performance and, even more crucially, QoE. Vasona Networks had started to move traffic optimization closer to the edge before MEC work at ETSI started. In this conversation with John Reister, Vice President of Marketing and Product Management at Vasona, we talked about the evolution of moving functions toward the edge – and about where the edge is.

MEC and, more generally, edge computing are crucial to ensuring that low-latency and high-reliability applications can be successfully deployed in 4G and 5G networks. Debashish Purkayastha, Member of Technical Staff at InterDigital, shared with us his thoughts on how this transition to mobile edge computing, through initiatives such as MEC and OpenFog, will change the way we operate and benefit from wireless networks, and how we will be able to meet the new latency and reliability requirements.
