Thursday 27 Jun 2019: The Role of Edge Computing in 5G and Beyond
Prof. Ning Wang - University of Surrey
Laver LT3 14:00-15:00
Abstract: This talk will introduce the technical work carried out at the 5G Innovation Centre (5GIC), University of Surrey on 4K/4K+ mobile video content delivery with user Quality of Experiences (QoE) assurance in Multi-access Edge Computing (MEC) enabled 5G networks. Specific techniques have been designed and developed for both video on demand (VoD) and live streaming application scenarios at the global Internet scale. The technical achievements have been published recently at prestigious IEEE journals such as JSAC and also featured IEEE Communication Society (ComSoc) Technology News. Following these, the talk will further provide an outlook on how edge computing will play an essential role in various application domains in future network environments.
