The Telco Edge is a distributed network of data centers that are managed by telecommunication operators around the world. A unique feature of these Telco Edge data centers, what we refer to as cloudlets, is that they are located at cellular tower networks. As a result, application data can be routed on a 4G or 5G cellular connection from a device, such as a smart phone, through the cell tower, directly to your application server in the data center.
This results in the two primary benefits compared to traditional cloud computing:
Lower Network Latency
Lower Network Jitter
To enable developers to deploy their applications onto the Telco Edge, MobiledgeX provides a cloudlet agnostic platform, where you can deploy & scale your server application across various Telcos.
