The first wave of 5G networks and services is underway with next-generation cellular promising huge latency benefits for autonomous vehicles, smart homes, and other high-bandwidth experiences. But clarity is needed for the long term. Where should the edge be in order to deliver the best service and security for the consumers? Who controls the edge and can it deliver both latency and functionality without losing service agility? As the network’s distance and complexity increases, collaboration between the wireless network and edge is essential to paving a graceful pathway to 5G. This session debates what the key priorities should be in the race to the edge.
