Edge Computing to Enable Low Latency, High Capacity Applications!
The Edge: Your Network Superpower

The network edge is a place where awesome things can happen. The high capacities and low latency at the edge enable life changing applications such as VR & AR, Advanced IoT, connected cars, E-health and much more. In fact, we are only just beginning to uncover the true power of the edge and how to use the technology to deliver applications in an efficient, cost effective way.
MEC Congress 2017 This year the MEC Congress will examine how operators are using edge compute to strengthen their networks and deliver a better quality of service to consumers. Also, how enterprises are using the edge to deliver IoT applications, robotics and new services that drive automation and reduce operational costs.

The MEC Congress will showcase the latest and greatest in MEC PoC’s and trials. You will discover how this network superpower is evolving, how it will integrate into traditional networks and how it will enable the applications and services of tomorrow.

Attend and Learn:

  • What role will MEC play in 5G?
  • Which applications will benefit most from the deployment of an edge network?
  • Developing an edge computing network for industrial IoT
  • Will MEC Make Money? Understanding the Financial Realities of Edge Computing Rollout
  • How are Different Industry Verticals Adopting/Investigating MEC?
