Huawei edge computing platform bags top industry prize
MEC solution takes home "The Best Edge Computing Technology for 5G Evolution" award at the Edge Computing Congress
The Huawei multi-access edge computing (MEC) solution has won "The Best Edge Computing Technology for 5G Evolution" award at the Edge Computing Congress in 2018. This award recognises the capabilities of the Huawei MEC solution in 5G architecture innovation, deployment practices, and application exploration.
The Huawei MEC solution deploys applications, content, core network service processing and resource scheduling functions at the network edge, close to the radio access network. This makes the Huawei MEC ideal for 5G networks, leveraging local service processing and collaboration between applications, content, and networks. The Huawei MEC solution can be used in a wide variety of 5G applications, such as autonomous driving, AR maintenance and telemedicine. It can be deployed in wireless hotspots such as enterprise campuses, stadiums, and urban cores.
Yu Haitao, vice president of Huawei Packet Core Network Product Line, said, "Huawei has integrated the MEC and 5G technologies into products and accelerated MEC development through 5G pilot networks and new service deployments. Since the MWC Shanghai 2017, Huawei has hosted three round-table meetings on MEC ecosystem construction, and has continued to promote MEC standards to build an ecosystem with industry partners."
Huawei MEC solution has been adopted by operators globally and is currently deployed in multiple countries and regions, including China, UAE, Spain, Portugal, and Thailand. At this Edge Computing Congress, Huawei MEC solution also helped China Unicom win "Recognition of Operator Innovation and Progress in Edge Computing" award.
