Virtual Network Functions (VNFs) that emulate networking equipment along with containerized applications, create the ability to use less costly commodity hardware instead of dedicated platforms. Wireless and wireline networking equipment providers for various use cases can benefit from Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) HW computerized modules that are low power and modular to address the infinite variety of connectivity, processing, and storage needs.
Edge computing refers to infrastructure that allows data processing as close to the source as possible. The main benefits of Edge computing include faster processing of data, reduced latency and improved customer experiences. Various applications like CDN, AI inference, IoT and Industrial automation, require close processing and storage as part of the new 5G networks. Analysts estimate that Mobile Edge Computing (MEC) will be integrated to base stations while Edge Micro-Data Centers will be deployed adjacent to 5G towers.
