MEC: A presentation and discussion on status and strategies in the industry; Julian Roldan Ramos, Telco Solutions Architect, Intel
Fixed and Mobile Networks are in the process of being transformed, just as the IT industry was transformed in the last 10 years. Mobile Edge Computing and Network Function Virtualization are not just buzz words, they are right at the centre of this transformation. Where are we, as an industry, in this transformation? Are there any synergies between NFV and MEC?
The role of user analytics in edge caching: Lessons from BBC iPlayer; Nishanth Sastry, Senior Lecturer, King's College London
It is nearly always 'good' to cache, but storage is typically limited at the edge, so deciding what gets cached can make or break edge-caching. Using traces of 1.2 Billion accesses to BBC iPlayer, the second largest application on UK's Internet, this talk will demonstrate how understanding user access patterns is crucial to realising the benefits of edge caching. This is based on two papers in IEEE INFOCOM 2015, a paper to appear in IEEE/ACM Transactions on Networking, and ongoing work.
