About this talk

Mobile edge computing (MEC) distributes execution resources, such as compute and storage, for applications with networking closer to end users. This includes deploying edge infrastructure at enterprise premises that is managed or hosted by operators that power 5G use cases across industry verticals such as transportation, energy, smart cities and manufacturing. Distributed cloud, including hybrid cloud and multi-cloud, supports the deployment of applications which ensure an execution environment for applications across different sites. Through MEC, operators can generate new revenues by using capabilities such as connected edge compute, distributed data fabrics, and private 5G capabilities to manage more B2B and B2B2C implementations. Tune into this webinar from industry thought leader Ron Westfall to learn how MEC is an enabler for a broad range of use cases, creating opportunity for 5G revenue diversification and monetization as well as improving the enterprise 5G experience. About the speaker: Ron is an experienced research expert and analyst, with over 20 years of experience in the digital and IT transformation markets. He is a recognized authority at tracking the evolution of and identifying the key disruptive trends within the service enablement ecosystem, including software and services, infrastructure, 5G/IoT, AI/analytics, security, cloud computing, revenue management, and regulatory issues.
