Mobile Edge Computing Market 2016-2025: Technology, Solutions, and Future of Wireless Apps and Content - Research and Markets

DUBLIN--()--Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Mobile Edge Computing: Technology, Solutions, and Future of Wireless Apps and Content" report to their offering.

Mobile Edge Computing (MEC) represents cloud-computing capabilities and an IT service environment at the edge of the mobile network. The edge of the network includes base station infrastructure and data centers close to the radio network, which can extract network context from Radio Access Network (RAN) and process in a distributed manner.

MEC brings virtualized applications much closer to mobile users ensuring network flexibility, economy and scalability for improved user experience. It facilitates a service environment that allows seamless access experience and responsiveness for content, services, and applications. It provides mobile network operators with an opportunity to play a greater role in an emerging ecosystem as they can add value through optimized apps and content.

Supported by leading organizations such as ETSI ISG, IBM, Intel, Nokia Network, Huawei, NTT DoCoMo, Saguna, and Vodafone, MEC will be applied in a wide array of areas including content delivery, DNS caching, RAN optimization, offloading, IoT connectivity, distributed video, critical communications, and urban security. MEC is also anticipated to create a new ecosystem that will positively impact various vertical markets.

This research evaluates MEC technology, architecture and building clocks, ecosystem, market drivers, applications, solutions, and deployment challenges. The report also analyzes MEC industry initiatives, leading companies, and solutions. It also includes a market assessment and forecast to 2025.
