What is Mobile Edge Cloud?
The Mobile Edge Cloud (MEC) is a network architectural idea that provides cloud-like capabilities at the network’s edge. MECs reduce latency and improve the performance of high-bandwidth applications by being near the end users.
It overcomes some of the shortcomings of traditional central clouds by delivering wireless network information, local context awareness, low latency, and bandwidth conservation.
The advanced development of new services like high-definition videos in augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR), and the Internet of Things (IoT) is taking the bar high for technical requirements on networks, including localized service processing, and customization capability. MEC has improvised response times to a great extent with faster data processing.
What are the business benefits of Mobile Edge Cloud?
Mobile edge cloud reduces the travel time for the data points by eliminating the need of transitioning them to the cloud.
Mobile edge cloud can provide enhanced security and privacy protections because it keeps data close to the edge and thus out of centralized servers.
Data storage costs have dropped significantly with mobile edge cloud.
