Video is the biggest capacity and congestion driver in mobile networks, in some markets, traffic growth is almost 200% year-over-year, with some operators seeing almost a 300% jump, largely driven by video. Viewers’ expectations for exceptional live-streaming quality and reliability are higher than ever. At a networking level, edge computing is viewed to be a significant innovation for how content is distributed with the higher capacity and lower latency expanding the definition of what ‘content’ can be delivered. Edge computing could also reduce workload and battery drain on mobile devices, whilst providing a superior content experience.
