Latency for extreme communications

Move traditional core network functionality to the edge to address latency requirements.

5G is not simply about a new radio interface with more bandwidth. It also addresses the latency concerns of several planned applications such as connected vehicles, real-time gaming, or remote video monitoring. These applications demand extremely low latency (< 1ms in some cases) to ensure the safety of passengers or to provide real-time high definition video for security surveillance.

Ensuring your network is up to the task of meeting this requirement means continuous, active monitoring of the end-to-end service in real-time. Advances in networking technology, such as virtualization mobile edge computing and network slicing, will enable ultra-low latency applications. Having performance monitoring as an embedded function of the service itself, rather than a network feature will provide the visibility needed to ensure these extreme services continue to exceed expectations.
