MiEdge: Fusion of mmWave Access and Mobile Edge Computing for 5G
Authors: Kei Sakaguchi
Abstract: Millimeter-wave (mm-Wave) technology has matured and it’s almost ready for 5G. However, the limited capacity of back-haul links are becoming bottleneck of mm-Wave integrated networks. In this talk, a fusion of mm-Wave access and mobile edge computing (MiEdge) is introduced to alleviate the problem of back-haul links and to facilitate spreading of mm-Wave technologies in 5G systems.
