(businesspress24) - MOBILE WORLD CONGRESS, Barcelona and Santa Clara, California - February 28, 2018 - Aricent, a global design and engineering company, today announced innovative Multi-access Edge (MEC) developer capabilities for immersive experiences such as cloud gaming, Augmented Reality/Virtual Reality (AR/VR), and ultra-low latency industrial applications. The software enables developers to rapidly deploy carrier-grade applications on Virtual Machines (VMs) and containers that can be distributed as edge services.

Industry analysts peg the market for edge computing applications to be worth over USD 6bn by 2020[1]. This represents a growing opportunity for over-the-top (OTT) players, equipment providers, and operators to play a role in delivering next-generation experiences and content faster with low network lags.

5G is still in a trial phase and the market for Edge technology is growing. While there is uncertainty about how much customers are willing to pay, mobile operators cannot ignore the opportunity that Edge offers. Over the last several years, Aricent has been working closely with several European and US Tier 1 Communication Service Providers (CSPs) and Network Equipment Providers (NEPs) to support global Edge initiatives.

Aricent developer software development kits (SDKs) and Edge infrastructure capabilities help solve some of the toughest challenges in edge computing:

Carrier-grade access network functions
Cloud-native infrastructure for low-latency workloads
Micro-services on-boarding and application certification
GPU/FPGA/CPU acceleration of protocols and algorithms
Security controls for decentralized and distributed micro-services
Walid Negm, Chief Technology Officer at Aricent said,

At Mobile World Congress, Aricent will use Microsoft video or live content at the edge, mobile operators can also save backhaul costs.
