James Buchanan explores the role of edge cloud and NFV in 5G applications

Big 5G Event presentation to discuss value of local compute models and low-latency transport for AR, VR and location-based services

  • Speakers: James Buchanan, GM, Edge Cloud, ADVA
  • Topics: 5G needs edge cloud and NFV for success
  • When: Tuesday, May 7, 2:15 p.m.
  • Where: Big 5G Event, Colorado Convention Center, Denver, Colorado, USA

Edge cloud technology and network functions virtualization (NFV) are essential for the increased throughput and resource optimization needed for 5G services. In this presentation, James Buchanan will discuss the value of low-latency connectivity for applications like AR and VR. He’ll outline how local processing is key to reducing the amount of data that must be backhauled to the central cloud. James will also explore the need for local processing as well as highly accurate timing in location-based services to maximize precision and value.
