MEC Stepping Stones and the Internet Evolution

2017-04-09T08:07:28+00:00 November 30th, 2015|

 The idea behind Mobile Edge Computing (MEC) is to bring computational power and storage to the Radio Access Network (RAN), as close as possible to the mobile user and the IoT device. With MEC, mobile networks can provide low-latency and high bandwidth to content, applications and services. In this post, we will take a tour [...]

Thoughts from the First Mobile Edge Computing Congress
