Akraino White Paper: Cloud Interfacing at the Telco 5G Edge

As cloud computing migrates from large Centralized Data Centers to the Server Provider Edge’s Access Edge (i.e. Server-based devices at the Telco tower) to be closer to the end user and reduce latency, more applications and use cases are now available.  When you combine this with the widespread roll out of 5G, with its speed, the last mile instantly becomes insanely fast.  Yet, if this new edge stack is not constructed correctly, the promise of these technologies will not be possible.

LF Edge’s Akraino project has dug into these issues and created its second white paper called Cloud Interfacing at the Telco 5G Edge.  In this just released white paper, Akraino analyzes the issues, proposes detailed enabler layers between edge applications and 5G core networks, and makes recommendations for how Telcos can overcome these technical and business challenges as they bring the next generation of applications and services to life.
