Is Today’s 5G MEC Delivering on the Low-Latency Hype?
Date / Time: Tuesday, April 26, 2022, 11:00 a.m. New York / 4:00 p.m. London
With operators around the world launching 5G MEC services, the question on everyone’s mind is “how low is the latency?” But really that’s just one of the questions we should be asking. We need to know what use cases will drive early adoption of MEC and whether 5G MEC latency is low enough for those use cases. Join latency experts Darius Singh, Principal Consultant at STL Partners, Stephen Douglas, Head of Market Strategy at Spirent, and Rich McNally, Sr. Director of Mobile Service Strategy at Spirent as they shed light on these critical questions with real-world measurements of 5G MEC and public cloud latency, and insightful analysis of the latency needs of emerging use cases.
This webinar will discuss the following topics:
The use cases expected to drive early adoption of MEC services
What latency levels end users are demanding by use case and how that demand will be monetized
The latency of initial 5G MEC services and how it compares to public cloud latency based on measurements in the US, UK and Japan
How Edge latency performance can be optimized and SLAs managed
