Among the many areas of impact 5G will have is the nature of “edge”. As recently as ten years ago, with LTE and prior wireless generations, it was common to build networks with highly centralized service nodes. With LTE, we expect the traditional network morphology to flip on its heels with the emergence of a top-heavy “edge”. In this presentation we discuss the interpretation and causes of this inversion and highlight some of the most immediate consequences.
Humberto J. La Roche is Principal Engineer in Cisco’s Mass-scale Infrastructure Group where he is responsible for 5G solution architecture. In his career spanning over twenty-five-year in telecom, he has been responsible for LTE systems engineering, product management of IMS and wireless softswitch products, product planning of optical networking and broadband access products, and transport network design. He is listed as author in over eleven technical papers and as inventor on over twenty patents. Humberto holds a PhD degree in Physics from the University of Texas at Austin.
