Making Video an Edge Application for Mobile Operators
Video has become the predominant application on mobile networks and this trend is expected to continue. The CTO of BT has said that he no longer manages a telecoms networks but a Video delivery network. This what the future hold for wireless networks. But delivering video out to the edge of the network in unicast mode risks clogging networks and diminishing end user experience (recent examples include the Rugby World Cup and the SuperBowl). However a combination of Multicast using satellite and Edge computing can dramatically change the costs of delivery and the performance to the end user.
