  • What are multi-access edge (MEC) computing and mobile edge computing?

    Multi-access edge computing (MEC) is a network architecture concept that enables cloud computing capabilities and an IT service environment at the edge of any network. Mobile edge computing provides both an IT service environment and cloud-computing capabilities at the mobile edge of the network, within the radio access network (RAN) and in close proximity to mobile subscribers, enterprises and other organizations.

  • What is Verizon 5G Edge?

     Verizon 5G Edge is a mobile edge compute platform available for businesses. It was designed to enable developers to build applications for mobile end-users and wireless edge devices with ultralow latency.

  • Why is Verizon 5G Edge important?

    This new edge computing architecture infuses the power of the cloud directly into the Verizon 5G network. By extending infrastructure to where business happens, it allows for a new class of cloud-native applications creating new and innovative, value-based opportunities for customers.

    In addition to ultralow latency, we expect users to greatly benefit from unprecedented increases in speed, bandwidth, throughput, reliability, agility, scalability, energy efficiency, privacy and security.

How could 5G Edge help enable the real time enterprise?

By delivering:

  • A fully integrated network and compute environment

  • Ease in performing data analytics locally

  • Consistently low latency for workloads and applications (closed-loop control systems, autonomous machines, robotics, AR/VR, IoT performance tracking, etc.)

  • Data and application sovereignty to support security and compliance requirements

It could also deliver services, specific to an environment and industry, such as oil and mining operations, manufacturing plants, hospitals, universities, public safety and other government facilities, sports arenas, and business campuses. Local compute could be particularly beneficial for organizations with large numbers of connected devices.

  • How can 5G Edge support IoT deployments?

    Organizations will be able to develop massive, scalable and valuable IoT capabilities known as Massive Internet of Things (MIoT). MIoT deployments will generate and harness huge amounts of data to drive advanced analytical and artificial intelligence (AI) programs and can support mission-critical services that require  Ultra Reliable, Low Latency Communication (URLLC).
