Global Multi-Access Edge Computing (MEC) Market 2017-2022: MEC and 5G Will Hasten the Bearer Services Commoditization End-Game for CSPs

Dublin, Sept. 26, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Multi-access Edge Computing (MEC): Market Outlook and Forecasts 2017 - 2022" report has been added to Research and Markets' offering.

This research evaluates MEC technology, architecture and building blocks, ecosystem, market drivers, applications, solutions, and deployment challenges. The report also analyzes MEC industry initiatives, leading companies, and solutions. The report includes a market assessment and forecast for MEC users and MEC revenue globally, regionally, and within the enterprise market for years 2017 to 2022. Forecasts include MEC infrastructure (equipment, platforms, software, APIs, and services).

MEC is poised to transform ICT to create a new communications-computation paradigm in which planning, engineering, deployment, and operation of telecommunications and computing will occur simultaneously. The implications will be to blur the lines between Communications Service Providers (CSP) and data/computing companies (datacenter, data services, and/or cloud services).

MEC will enable many new and enhanced applications and services including improvements in Augmented Reality, Location-based Services, Enterprise-specific Context Aware Services, Real-time Data as a Service (DaaS), and more. There will also be advancements in Vehicle to Vehicle communications as well as Mobile Commerce, Healthcare, Social Networking and other services. MEC will also drive many advances in infrastructure such as mini datacenters, remote cloud servers, and more. It will also facilitate cloud-based service delivery models including real-time data analytics on-demand and various DaaS offerings.
