Networking enables the new world of Edge and 5G Computing

From Microsoft:

Whereas Multi-access Edge Compute (MEC) is intended to be deployed at the customer’s premises, Network Edge Compute (NEC) is the network carrier equivalent, placing the edge computing platform within their network. Last week we announced the initial deployment of our NEC platform in AT&T’s Dallas facility. Instead of needing to access applications and games running in the public cloud, software providers can bring their solutions physically closer to their end-users. At AT&T’s Business Summit we gave an augmented reality demonstration, working with Taqtile, and showed how to perform maintenance on an aircraft landing gear.
