The Collision of Cloud and the Edge - Part 2

Sponsored Content
In my last blog entry, I talked about the “collision” of “Cloud” and “Edge” computing, the one trend pushing computing capability away from the user, toward more centralization and the other pushing it toward the user. I concluded by saying that it was unpredictable where and indeed whether this collision would occur, but that network operators could prepare for any scenario by...

As 5G deployments continue toward the goal of ubiquitous coverage, two apparently conflicting trends are developing: C-RAN and Edge Computing. C-RAN, or Centralized/Cloud Radio Access Network, is an architecture in which active equipment—most notably the BBU, or BaseBand Unit—gets moved away from the network edge and centralized or moved to “the cloud.” Edge computing is a...
