Mobile Edge Computing (MEC) is a game-changing application, and indeed the killer-app for 5G networks. Profound changes are being made to the 5G core network and RAN design to accommodate MEC as the basis for futuristic application development and deployment. Once deployed, MEC can bring in strong synergies between application deployment platforms and cellular networks, the one for easy deployment and application management, and the other for its reach into every consumer’s proximity. We have already seen multiple edge deployment platforms available to application developers. By integrating these with modern edge deployment frameworks and software-defined networks, application developers will be able to develop modular applications which can be placed automatically deep into the cellular network in close proximity to the end-user, which in turn will see massive progress in terms of network latency and bandwidth, computing speeds and seamless application integration.
By utilizing a plethora of modern device/network virtualization platforms, and distributed media processing platforms (GStreamer and OpenCV), HSC is developing integrated platforms for distributed multimedia processing and computer vision. We can work on all fronts starting from edge-based front ends (web-cameras, drones, mobile phones) to integrated AI-based processors in the backend.
