Mobile Edge Computing (MEC) represents cloud-computing capabilities and an IT service environment at the edge of the mobile network. The edge of the network includes base station infrastructure and data centers close to the radio network, which can extract network context from Radio Access Network (RAN) and process in a distributed manner. MEC is poised to make Content Delivery Networks (CDN) up to 40% more efficient for cellular communications service providers. Cost savings will be shared between CSPs and CDN providers with the latter improving margins by up to 25%.
Next generation applications, content, and commerce offerings are driving the need for flexible and cost effective CDN solutions, which core services such as aggregation, management, and distribution of content as well as a variety of value-added functionality. The market need for CDN solutions correlates directly with the explosion of broadband networks, smart mobile phones, and related applications, services and content. In particular, the convergence of cellular networks supported by 4G/LTE broadband wireless, and Cloud-based applications, facilitates the need for more intelligent content solutions. Vendors to continue to optimize LTE capabilities such as improved uplink capacity to support video and wireless communication to cloud-based applications. LTE adoption will continue at a fast pace with many innovations overlapping with 5G operations.
