InterDigital Senior Director Presenting on Edge Computing at IEEE Sarnoff Symposium

September 19, 2018 / Posted By: Patrick Van de Wille

The 39th annual IEEE Sarnoff Symposium is taking place September 24-25, and InterDigital Senior Director Robert Gazda will be presenting an invited talk. The IEEE Sarnoff Symposium has brought together telecom and communications experts from industry, universities, and governments since 1978. It is a premier forum for researchers, engineers, and business executives, with keynotes, invited talks, expert panels, tutorials, demos, exhibits and poster presentations.

Robert’s talk is titled “Edge Computing in Emerging 5G Networks”. Attendees will discover options for deploying and integrating Edge Computing into the 5G system. Edge Computing is a foundational technology that enhances network flexibility, efficiency, and bandwidth utilization while meeting demanding 5G KPI’s for ultra-reliable/low-latency applications including automated factories and autonomous vehicles.

Robert will discuss key challenges for deploying and managing the 5G Edge Cloud such as orchestration, network slicing and resource demand coordination across stakeholders. He will also talk about how Edge Computing is being supported within the 3GPP 5G specifications, and go over a few 5G Edge Cloud deployment scenarios as compared to Edge in 4G.

“Edge Computing in Emerging 5G Networks” is slated for Monday, September 24 from 1:50 p.m. (13:50) to 2:10 p.m. (14:10) in Ballroom A. The symposium is being hosted at the NJIT Campus Center in Newark, N.J. For more details on the 39th annual IEEE Sarnoff Symposium, visit the event website.
