What Dedicated Multi-access Edge Computing (DeMEC) brings to your business

Dedicated MEC enables real-time processing at the edge of the network for applications requiring ultra-low latency, such as mixed reality, video analytics and autonomous vehicles. Dedicated MEC is deployed at a customer’s site and is dedicated to one business, thus providing regulatory compliance and unparalleled security as data is stored onsite.

Edge Computing processes data close to the point of origin or consumption, meaning you can add intelligence to much of the equipment that sits within operations – and apply artificial intelligence-powered automation at those end points. This is one reason why early adoption includes manufacturers implementing MEC in their plants as part of their industry 4.0 plans.

Bringing the incredible to life

Irish Manufacturing Research

With Vodafone Business 5G connectivity and Edge Computing, Irish Manufacturing Research (IMR) have been able to re-imagine the layout of their advanced manufacturing research centre and go beyond their limits.

IMR is a government-funded research and technology organisation that provides a portfolio of research, training, and consultancy services, helping manufacturers adopt Industry 4.0 technologies.

IMR’s mission is to unleash the potential of Industry 4.0 and make Ireland a global leader in advanced manufacturing.

Low latency, high bandwidth and high reliability are key to supporting critical applications on the manufacturing floor and secure ubiquitous connectivity over a licenced spectrum. To keep their assets intelligently connected, IMR needed the close coupling of MPN and MEC to bring data processing to the very edge of their 5G network.
