NFV and MEC Raise Their Lovely Heads at Mobile World Congress
At Mobile World Congress 2017, executives from around the globe will share their insights on, among other things, the topics of network functions virtualization (NFV) and mobile edge computing (MEC).
In addition to NFV, an emerging topic — mobile edge computing (MEC) — is getting some air time at this year’s Mobile World Congress.
Peter Jarich, VP of consumer infrastructure services with Current Analysis, is leading a session, entitled “5G Beyond the Hype: Value and Building Blocks.” Panelists at that session will explore some of the basic building blocks of 5G, and one of those building blocks is MEC.
“MEC uses a lot of NFV infrastructure to create a small cloud at the edge,” according to Lior Fite, CEO of Saguna, which is a vendor of MEC technology.
