Huawei MEC@CloudEdge solution is 5G oriented. It implements local breakout of data traffic, reduces transmission latency, supports local service charging and management, network capability openness and 3rd party APP integration. This solution is especially suitable for scenarios like enterprise park building local network, smart stadium, IoT, automatic driving and indoor navigation, etc.

Zhou Yan, Director of Research Department of Huawei Cloud Core Network Product Line, said, “Huawei has been pushing forward MEC standardization and commercial trial since 2014, and has won multiple awards at home and abroad. In 2017, Huawei carried out commercial practices in various vertical markets on ultra low latency, management and controlling capability, agility and openness. With the development from 4G to 5G, together with industrial partners, Huawei hopes MEC@CloudEdge to promote new prosperity of various industries and create cross-sectoral value for the country. ”

In the past year, Huawei MEC@CloudEdge has been commercially deployed for operators in several countries including China, UAE, Thailand and Spain. In Vodafone Spain, MEC@CloudEdge successfully reduced latency of VR video transmission by half. In another test of a mobile game ‘Crisis Action 2’, the end to end latency was reduced by 90% to 20 milliseconds, providing a perfect user experience. In the Zhenhai refinery smart factory project, MEC@CloudEdge not only reduces latency by local access of services, but also increases network security by local network insulation, and supports 3rd party APP deployment and network capability exposure. This practice has built a model for future smart park buildings.

In 2017, Huawei MEC@CloudEdge won ‘Best Commercial Deployment of MEC’ award at MEC congress in Berlin, and won two awards, ‘Outstanding MEC Technology Architecture of the Year’ and ‘MEC Outstanding Use Case of the Year’, at PT Expo China. With the large scale commercial use of MEC, Huawei MEC@CloudEdge will provide better service experience for the user in more business scenarios.
