[London, UK, September 24, 2019] Huawei’s 5G MEC solution won the Best Edge Computing Technology award at the Edge Computing Congress held in London. This is the third year Huawei has won this award in recognition of its continuous innovation and achievements in MEC technologies.
Huawei 5G MEC helps carriers build ultimate service experience and innovates the business model by leveraging a collaboration of connectivity and computing capabilities, high-performance heterogeneous hardware, and the MEC open platform. This enables the MEC to collaborate with the entire network to dynamically allocate and adjust network resources, thereby providing application-centric, network-wide deterministic assurance of subscriber experience and achieving site innovation followed by network-wide replication. The high-performance heterogeneous hardware uses Huawei-developed Kunpeng processor and a switching-free architecture. It integrates accelerators such as GPU, NP, and AI to achieve high performance, high integration, and low power consumption. The open MEC platform integrates multi-industry applications and code-free CT services, implementing one-stop integration. One box replaces one network to accelerate service rollout.
Hu Chunzhe, Vice president of Huawei Packet Core Network Product Line, commented on the award: “It is a great honor for Huawei to win this award at the Edge Computing Congress. As one of the most important 5G capabilities, the MEC realizes the collaboration between applications and networks and brings economic values to carriers. As a promoter of the MEC industry and the pioneer of the 5G technologies, Huawei will continue to increase investment, continuously improve technical capabilities, and strive to become the best partner for carriers building MEC.”
With 5G, new experience drives service innovation. The edge is where multiple services and scenarios converge. Huawei 5G MEC solution will quickly expand 5G from B2C to diverse B2B scenarios to ensure optimal user experience, promote cross-industry application innovation, and enable various industries.
