As 5G launched into global markets, many eyes turned towards the edge of the network. Because even though 5G touted incredible bandwidth, it also enabled a new architecture for the operator network which included a more robust edge. As streaming continues to content with latency, the opportunity to push streaming workflow functions and content closer to the user can’t be missed. In this webinar, we will explore what the Edge Cloud really is and how streaming operators can take advantage of Mobile Edge Computing (MEC) and other edge cloud functions to provide a richer, more interactive, and more scalable streaming offering.
