You can't spend more than a few minutes reading technical news without hearing something about Edge Computing -- sometimes, as with 5G, without even knowing it. But do you really need to pay attention? And if you do, what can you do about it?
Join Mirantis and Ericsson for an in-depth technical discussion of Edge Computing, why it matters and what kinds of tools you need to take advantage of it.
We'll also talk about the brand new MCP Edge, but not exclusively; join us to get a good footing on the topic itself as we discuss:
- Edge computing and use cases, and what makes it different from general cloud computing
- How Ericsson currently partners with Mirantis for core network infrastructure, and how the company plans to expand to Edge networks
- The MCP Edge cloud stack and how each component fills Edge computing needs
- Virtlet and VNFs in the Edge, and why containers haven't completely taken over yet
- MCP Edge networking with Virtlet, and how technologies such as SR-IOV make a difference
