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.
