Verizon Has Successfully Tested Edge Computing On A Live 5G Network


Verizon announced last week that it successfully tested edge computing on a live 5G network in Houston and slashed network latency in half.

Edge computing systems process data locally, like in a nearby data center or on-device, which lessens the strain on networks and improves data reply times.

Verizon's test required engineers to install Multi-access Edge Compute (MEC) equipment and MEC platform software close to the edge of a network facility in an effort to cut down the distance data from a facial recognition application had to move when identifying people.
