What is Multi-access Edge Computing ?

Many people in the ICT industry are familiar with the term “Mobile Edge Computing”, which refers to the use of Edge Computing in mobile (e.g. cellular) networks.  However, the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) has recognized the need to focus on more than proximity computing for cellular as there is also a need for distributed computing for fixed networks as well as various wireless access such as WiFi, WiMAX, and more.  Accordingly, ETSI has changed the MEC acronym to reflect “Multi-access“.

ETSI said the group’s focus will expand to “address multiple MEC hosts being deployed in many different networks, owned by various operators and running edge applications in a collaborative manner.” This expansion is set to include work on heterogeneous networks using LTE, “5G” technologies, fixed deployments and Wi-Fi technologies, with current work to simplify application programming interfaces, standards-based interfaces for multi-access hosts and an alignment with network functions virtualization architectures.

The ETSI MEC ISG group produces specifications to support edge computing.

One of the important areas of work for the ISG is to develop MEC Proof of Concept (PoC) to validate the specifications that are being developed, and to demonstrate the use cases that have served to extract the technical requirements.

MEC brings virtualized applications much closer to mobile users ensuring network flexibility, economy and scalability for improved user experience. It facilitates a service environment that allows seamless access experience and responsiveness for content, services, and applications. It provides mobile network operators with an opportunity to play a greater role in an emerging ecosystem as they can add value through optimized apps and content.

MEC will enable many new and enhanced applications and services including improvements in Augmented Reality, Location-based Services, Enterprise-specific Context Aware Services, Real-time Data as a Service (DaaS), and more.  There will be advancements in Vehicle to Vehicle (V2V) communications as well as Mobile Commerce and Social Networking.

MEC will also drive many advances in infrastructure such as mini datacenters, remote servers, and more.  It will also facilitate cloud-based service delivery models including real-time data analytics on-demand and various DaaS offerings.

IoT Security Becoming Increasingly Important, Especially for Enterprise

The Internet of Things (IoT) has the potential to become as silent, hidden, omnipresent, and essential as the air to modern society.  Like the air, IoT also has virtually limitless access points and vulnerabilities.

While initially hackers have been largely a nuisance, Mind Commerce anticipates that their intrusions will increasingly have a detrimental effect, leading to the potential for operational disruption, industrial espionage, damage to enterprise assets, and even potential physical harm to human beings.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is rapidly becoming integrated into many aspects of communication, applications, content, and commerce.  The Internet of Things (IoT) is a particularly important area for AI as a means for safeguarding assets, reducing fraud, and supporting analytics and automated decision making.

Mind Commerce estimates that global AI-based IoT anti-fraud and security intelligence solution revenue will reach nearly $1.5B USD by 2021

The 3rd annual IoT Security Summit is moving to New York City and will co-located this year with Blockchain360 and Cloud Security Summit. IoT Security Summit is the only event of its kind to focus on security and privacy issues surrounding IoT and how to manage the information associated with the rapidly increasing amount of connected devices.

Bringing 500+ decision makers, influencers and stakeholders together under one roof, IoT Security will feature an expert speaker line-up, interactive Learning Labs, case studies and networking opportunities designed to ignite discussion and enable business partnerships.
