Operator platform: telco edge


Wednesday, 30 June: 13:30 - 14:30


My MWC Online, Hall Virtual



Session Description

There are many potential advantages if enterprise and consumer solution providers push aspects of their services to edge clouds closer to their customer endpoints. This move can lead to improved latency, resiliency, security, privacy, data thinning, transport efficiency as well as being able to take advantage of bespoke 5G performance and features like network slicing. A barrier innovative Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) face in unlocking these benefits can be the different approaches taken by operators who are hosting clouds at the edge of their 5G access networks and on-network customer premises. 
GSMA’s focus to address this is the work done by Operator Platform Group (OPG) which brings together developers, operators, platform providers and the broader ecosystem to transform MEC Services and create the level of commonality required to achieve global, interoperable scale. Alongside this, our Telco Edge Cloud trials project (under the GSMA Foundry) showcases the value of the Operator Edge Cloud.  
Join us for this unique networking session, with speakers from Capgemini Engineering, Telefonica and Unmanned Life. Following a brief overview of the work being undertaken by the GSMA, operator members and partnering application developers, we will break out to discuss the benefits, challenges and future for these technologies to transform consumer and enterprise experiences.
This session is ideal for Operators, Platform Providers, Vendors and Developers looking at ways that the Telco Edge can enhance their products or services.
