Wind River, BT collaborate on edge cloud computing for 5G

Wind River®, a provider of delivering IoT software to critical infrastructure, has collaborated with BT on a research activity showcasing edge cloud compute applications, the company said.

The joint proof of concept will be demonstrated by Wind River (booth C7) at SDN NFV World Congress 2018 and features Wind River Titanium Cloudâ„¢, a deployment-ready virtualization software platform.

5G applications will require locating compute power and capacity close to where the traffic originates, whereas application logic has traditionally resided in the data center. However, 5G applications such as those for autonomous driving or Industrial IoT, where physical controls require extremely low latency, will demand diverse network locations for their logic. In these cases, computing will often need to happen much closer to the end device.
