Edge Computing in 5G Network

Edge computing is a key enabler in 5G networks. It brings computing and storage resources closer to the users and devices at the edge of the network.

This technology reduces the physical distance between the UE and the servers this UE connects with, which,

  • Lowers the latency between the UE and the servers.
  • Reduces the congestion in the network, as less network links will be used between the UE and the servers.
  • Improves the reliabilityof communication between the UE and the servers.

To enable edge computing in 5G networks, mobile network operators are deploying specialized infrastructure, such as micro data centres, at strategic locations within the network. These data centres are then integrated with the 5G network architecture to provide the desired low latency, high bandwidth, and distributed processing capabilities.
