Mobile edge computing in support of IoT

In 2015, there were more than 60 million cellular machine-to-machine (M2M) connections in North America alone, and by 2020, that number will reach 175 million, according to a new study from the GSMA. Forecasts vary on the global internet of things (IoT) market, but several put it at more than a trillion dollars in the next few years. Scalar Market Research estimates that the IoT market will be worth $1.47 trillion this year, and reach nearly $3 trillion by 2022. The global telcos sit in the middle of this – they interconnect all of these devices (along with everything else we use in modern communications today) by hosting “edge” locations in every city and town worldwide. Because of this, telcos are perfectly positioned to support the IoT market by bringing intelligence to the edge in the form of mobile edge computing (MEC).

Necessity drives innovation in NFV architecture.

Imagine if we could easily order secure network services we want online in the same amount of time it takes to brew a cortado – just minutes. Imagine no more. Lots of excitement and energy continue to surround production deployments of innovative cloud-based network functions virtualization (NFV) services and it is getting even better as enterprise and consumers customers can order, customize, and manage their network services with just a few clicks of a mouse.

Our long-time partners, Swisscom, Verizon, Telefonica, and NTT are expanding their cloud services in an effort to offer enormous savings and agility to their business customers, and to become among first movers that capture their share of the IT as a Service (ITaaS) opportunity that research firms forecast to be worth more than $150 billion in 2020.
