Our Exciting Opportunity

With 5G being deployed across the world, new use cases are emerging in many new domains, e.g. autonomous vehicles, smart cities, virtual reality and many more. These applications typically require either high bandwidth and/or extremely low latency. To mitigate this, data centers at the logical edge of a mobile network (also called Edge Cloud) could provide computing facilities to these applications, avoiding higher network latency as well as lowering pressure on the network bandwidth capacity. However, deploying data centers at the edge of the mobile network implies costs, both for the deployment investment as well as for its operation and maintenance. Indeed, if we run an application at the edge, can we calculate how much resources will cost? How much would the difference be as compared to running the same application in a traditional large-scale central data center? How could we innovate the design for Edge Cloud to further bring down its resource cost?
