Impact of Mobile Edge Computing in Real-World

Authors(2) :-M. Karthik, Gomathy. K

Today's world is seeing an increasing usage of mobile devices and sensor rich devices such as smartphones, tablets and wearable devices such as smart watches. The volume of data that is generated by these devices is huge. Centralized cloud computing architectures cannot address the problems of network latency and jitter, degrading QoS (Quality of Service) and QoE (Quality of Experience) and other challenges in the world of mobile users. In this paper, we survey the impact of Mobile Edge Computing in the real world, an emerging edge computing technology to bring the cloud computing paradigm beyond the centralized architecture towards the edge of the network, nearer to the devices.
