The CW Technology & Engineering Conference is a day designed specifically for engineers. Following on from CWIC 2020: At the Edge, CW TEC 2020 will explore the concept of the 5G edge, reviewing the role of edge computing within the broader 5G architecture evolution.
It’s difficult to read about 5G without seeing mention of the "edge" - edge computing, edge cloud, edge services… but what is the edge? Where is the edge? And why is the edge important for 5G?
CW TEC will bring delegates up to speed on the concept of the 5G edge: reviewing the role of edge computing within the broader 5G architecture evolution, exploring what edge brings to infrastructure, and how edge can enable innovative products and services.
The location of the edge will be discussed along with studies of latency in real, operational mobile network environments. The event will provide context to the work in ETSI ISG MEC and explore where multi-access edge computing will sit within future converged fixed and mobile networks.
The annual CW TEC provides a dynamic forum for harnessing knowledge, driving lively debate and networking at a senior level. It offers a more technical and focused agenda than the International Conference, exploring an emerging problem space that the CW community has highlighted as being particularly worthy of debate. Past event topics have included quantum computing and the impact on spectral value of mobile, satellite, TV, IoT and wearable technologies. The conference format and agenda is driven by the CW membership.
