  • 5G Mobile Edge Computing – An Emerging Technology Slowly Transitioning to Commercial Reality
  • Aug 23, 2019


Multi-Access Edge (MEC) Computing is an emerging edge architecture that locates compute and storage resources in the Radio Access Network (RAN), thus creating a critical bridge between 5G networks and cloud computing infrastructure. This enables mobile operators to optimize the delivery of latency-sensitive content and services to their users. This Viewpoint outlines the key drivers behind the MEC market, discusses the various MEC standards under development, and provides an overview of the key players in the 5G MEC ecosystem. We also provide details of the trials and early commercial MEC services currently being deployed by major mobile operators (MNOs).

This report is fact-based and includes deep analysis covering multiple dimensions and will help players across the edge computing value chain to holistically analyze the current state of the ecosystem and help target the market.
