Vodafone’s work in bringing edge computing to businesses has been recognized with the Mobile Innovation of the Year award at the 2022 NTAs.
Vodafone has won the Mobile Innovation of the Year award for its leading role in the field of edge computing, a technology that helps businesses make the most of cloud computing using the company’s mobile and fixed data networks.
The UK Vodafone Business team was garlanded with the gong at the 2022 National Technology Awards in London.
Vodafone has been working with Amazon Web Services to bring cloud computing power closer to business customers, rather than using traditional data centres. Known as Multi-access Edge Computing (MEC), it drastically reduces the response time for data analysis.
Vodafone is the only mobile network operator in Europe to offer both 5G and MEC. This combination of technologies dramatically lowers latency – or lag – speeding up processes and opening up new applications for customers such as Sportable and Digital Barriers.
