5G iMEC Networking Platform

In order to upgrade their infrastructure to meet the latency and Quality of Service (QoS) requirements of 5G while reducing costs, commercial or private network operators can implement a Multi Access Edge Computing (MEC) architecture, and utilize Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) together with general purpose servers to implement Virtual Evolved Packet Core (vEPC) technology, replacing expensive proprietary hardware and software. ITRI's iMEC (Intelligent Mobile Edge Computing) platform combined with GIGABYTE servers provide an effective way to implement this solution.
