Later this month, NetNumber will host a workshop at the Mobile360 Privacy and Security event at The Hague. The workshop will address how to protect the mobile edge, among other topics.
So, what is Multi-Access Edge Computing? Essentially, the goal of the MEC working group is to streamline the implementation of use cases at the edge of the network. MEC provides an open set of services and APIs accessible to application developers and cloud providers. It is expected to become the preferred method for serving edge computing applications where performance and low-latency are required – such as 5G applications, mobile corporate cloud requirements, and the need for ever greater real-time/low latency data by mobile users. With NFV and SDN, MEC will be crucial for connecting the world of IoT.
