Power at the edge: Processing and storage move from the central core to the network edge

White Paper / Feb 2017 / 5g, mobile edge computing

MEC and other edge computing initiatives address the need to place processing and storage where appropriate, whether a central location or the network’s edge, depending on factors such as applications, traffic type, network conditions, subscriber profile, and operator’s preference.  In this InterDigital sponsored report, RCRWireless explores the evolution of the edge’s role in fixed and mobile networks and how it may impact network optimization, value-chain roles and relationships, business models, usage models and, ultimately, the subscriber experience.
