MEC gets ready for the enterprise and IoT. A conversation with Caroline Chan, General Manager, 5G Infrastructure Division, Network Platform Group, Intel. Virtualization gives network operators – both fixed and mobile ones – flexibility on where to locate processing and storage within their networks. And they have started to move beyond the centralized cloud and place some function at the edge, or near the edge. Multiple-access edge computing, or MEC, is one initiative that provides a standards-based framework to operators and vendors to enable edge computing. We talked to Caroline Chan, the General Manager within the 5G Infrastructure Division in the Network Platform Group at Intel, about the impact of the move towards the edge of the network.
