MEC is more than a tool to lower latency. It is an enabler for services that are specific to a location but are served over multiple access networks, both fixed and mobile. In this context, MEC is a powerful driver that accelerates the convergence of fixed and mobile networks. In this conversation, Mansoor Hanif, Director of Converged Networks and Innovation at BT, tells us how this is shaping the network evolution at BT in the UK.

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.

Spectrum as a shared resource. Light-licensing models for 3.5 GHz band open new ways to deploy and operate networks. This is a presentation I gave in Bellevue WA last week - preliminary thoughts on 3.5 GHz / CBRS: what it means in the US and in the rest of the world, business models and deployment models. I will be glad to hear your thoughts as well as I keep working on this.
