Power to the edge: Interdigital
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 c...

KDDI Research: The impact of C-RAN and MEC on transport
KDDI has been one of the mobile operators at the forefront of Wi-Fi, small-cells and C-RAN deployments and, as a result, it has keenly explored fiber and wireless solutions for the backhaul and fronthaul. Fumio Watanabe, the Chairman of the Board of Directors at KDDI in Japan, has been involved for ...

Improving latency and capacity in transport for C-RAN and 5G. Trends in backhaul, fronthaul, xhaul and mmW 

Download the report

C-RAN and 5G create much stricter latency and capacity requirements for backhaul and fronthaul, and expand the role of fronthaul in transport. In this report we discuss the evolution of backhaul and fronthaul, the emergence of xhaul/midhaul models, and the use of mmW for backhaul and fronthaul.

The report includes an analyst report and features interviews with:
- Telefónica Argentina  
- Nokia
- KDDI Research
- InfoVista
- Fujitsu Network Communications
- ExteNet
- EXFO

Next report: "Power at the edge. Processing and storage move from the central core to the network edge"

Request a copy of the report

The concomitant push to virtualization, and the heightened requirements for latency and QoE are changing the way mobile operators decide which functions and what content have to be centralized, or can be moved towards to the edge. 

The “Power at the edge” report discusses different approaches to edge computing – MEC, MCORD, OpenFog, Open Edge Computing, and others. MEC is a crucial component in edge computing as it enabled operators to move some of the functionality traditionally kept within the core closer to the subscriber, in the RAN or intermediate aggregation points. 

We present an overview of MEC (what it is, the standardization process, the technology, the ecosystem and industry support) and other edge computing initiatives – including drivers to adoption, deployment and operational challenges, use case scenarios, and synergies with RAN and core virtualization.

We will discuss the report findings in a webinar on February 7, 2017, at 8:00 am PT, 11:00 am ET, 4:00 pm BST (UTC+1), 5:00 pm CEST. The webinar will also be available offline for those who cannot dial in.
