As smart wearable devices become an integral part of our life, the need for ubiquitous connection will also rise. With ITRI’s Mobile Edge Network Cloud (MEC) with 5G D2D Wireless Relay Backhaul Solution and Architecture, proximity service can be sent to wearable devices and surrounding information can be gathered. The benefits of MEC are as follows:
- Assist high-order image processing requirements for Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality applications, so that wearable devices can extend battery life and reduce computation latency.
- With MEC, wearable devices can now experience lower latency, higher throughput, and seamless services. Telecom operators can also deploy more small cells with Wireless Relay Backhaul, reducing operation/maintenance cost and time-to-market.
- D2D Offloading technology can ease the network congestion problem by allowing 2 Proximity UEs to create a device-to-device link for communication, and avoid dataflow to occupy the bandwidth of core network infrastructures.
Applications & Benefits
All in all, this new 5G D2D Offloading technology and architecture can achieve integration of heterogeneous network, expand network coverage, and offload base station traffic to proximity devices. It can also provide regional cloud (Mobile Edge Cloud Network) and 5G D2D Wireless Relay Backhaul as well as other functions.
