MEC-AI: Edge computing enhanced by artificial intelligence

Edge computing emerges as an increasingly important way to process data from networked devices and sensor networks into information that applications can utilise. Over the recent years, data has been processed in clouds on a centralised basis, but edge computing brings computing servers closer to the edge of the network, for example, locally next to 5G base stations. This makes it possible to transfer data faster from devices and systems to the servers that process it. Low latency is especially important in the control of industrial processes and machines.

5GEAR: 5G Edge Computing Enhanced Augmented Reality

Mobile Augmented Reality (MAR) is gaining popularity due to the wide adoption of mobile and wearable devices, and is one of the future applications targeted by 5G. The 5GEAR project will focus on 5G edge computing based infrastructure for MAR, Minimizing latency for MAR in 5G latency, and Security architecture for MAR in 5G.

Towards Digital Paradise

TDP is a company driven joint research project where we develop local services for the remote locations with small cells base stations. This enables localized services enabling 5G Mobile Edge Computing (MEC)-like systems. TDP is jointly operating with the Naked approach project, in the theme of seeking and developing alternative, human-centric ways of producing and utilizing digital services. 

Arctic Mobile Communications Architectures

The Arctic region in many places lacks the Internet connectivity we are used to in urban areas.

This project provides new arctic mobile communications architectures based on today’s and tomorrow’s technologies. Local mobile networks tied together by tailored backhaul solutions are at the heart of these architectures, while sea and fiber cables, microwave links, HF, and high-speed or mobile satellite communications constitute their key components.
