Edge computing as an evolution of cloud computing brings application hosting from centralized data centres down to the network edge, closer to consumers and the data generated by applications. Edge computing is acknowledged as one of the key pillars for meeting the demanding Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) of 5G, especially as far as low latency and bandwidth efficiency are concerned. However, not only is edge computing in telecommunications networks a technical enabler for the demanding KPIs, it also plays an essential role in the transformation of the telecommunications business, where telecommunications networks are turning into versatile service platforms for industry and other specific customer segments. This transformation is supported by edge computing, as it opens the network edge for applications and services, including those from third parties. DOWNLOAD
