Cole Crawford at Vapor IO is building a network designed to bypass the telco entirely. He’s installed an “aggregation box” a hop or three from the towers. Iyad Terazi’s Federated Wireless is ready to connect it with a dedicated radio in 3.5 GHz shared spectrum. That’s natural for certain kinds of IoT. The speed will be … Read moreCould telcos lose the Edge Cloud race before it even begins?
n 2020, Edge Clouds can reduce latency to about 15-25 ms in 5G, ~10 ms more in LTE. Today’s 4G LTE networks take 30 ms to 70 ms and more. Everything we do today works on 4G, of course. Some apps will benefit substantially from lower latencies, especially gaming. Some new apps will develop when … Read moreEdge Clouds: Who will buy?
1 ms 5G is years away but the first 10-15 ms Edge Clouds are sprouting up. A day after I said, “No one is deploying Edge at the cell sites,” I discovered Vapor IO is deploying systems one hop away or sometimes at towers. Update: Vapor tells Mike Dano “Vapor IO is putting its edge computing functions,” where they … Read more10-15 ms servers deploying from Vapor IO
