Multi-access Edge Computing Market Key Takeaways


Multi-access edge computing (MEC) moves the functioning of services and traffic from the centralized cloud to the network edge and customers. The network edge processes, analyzes, and stores the data instead of sending the whole data to the cloud.

Market Trends, Drivers, Restraints, and Opportunities:

  • Increasing tendency among communication service providers to opt for virtualized, software authorized network model, with a cloud-based solution is expected to drive the market.
  • Mobile networks with 5G services offer numerous B2B services through edge computing. This factor boosts the market.
  • The ability to reduce huge volumes of data into simple telemetry data at the edge of network allows new business models to improve and hence permits service providers to increase the level of competition in the market.
  • Rising demand for improved virtual reality and augmented reality (VR/AR) experience, by prolonging bandwidth and enhancing 5G capabilities, is fueling the multi-access edge computing market.
  • Merging multi-access edge computing with AR or VR has led to development in broadcasting of entertainment and sports, thus improving the viewing experience.
