August 30, 2018 / KHARI JOHNSON

As 5G networks inch closer to reality and next-generation video technology like VR and 8K threaten to stretch the limits of streaming, edge computing will become a hot topic.During the annual IBC Show in Amsterdam next month, mobile edge computing will gain more relevance as cloud video and services look to get closer to end-users. And ORI CEO Mahdi Yahya thinks it will open up relationships between telcos, broadcasters and video service providers.“Adopting a similar model to public cloud providers, telcos will be debating how they can increase network access and find new monetization opportunities. They can open up their network edge assets to service developers, which includes everyone from streaming giants like Netflix and Amazon Prime, to traditional broadcasters like the BBC. Developers can make the best use of available network capacity and resources to deliver live and on-demand content at a national level, or even at specific locations,” Yahya said.
