Eight edge computing trials and projects – RCR Wireless
Edge computing trials are testing entertainment, industrial use cases and more
Edge computing puts compute resources closer to the end user, enabling lower latency, more predictable quality of service and the ability to offer a more flexible, cloud-based service enablement environment at the network edge. Multi-access edge computing is expected to be a significant foundational technology for 5G networks, but it is also being explored in an LTE context.
As telecom operators and vendors figure out how multi-access edge computing fits into their strategic roadmaps for both LTE and 5G, here are some of the tests, projects and MEC initiatives that have been made public.
