Telecompetitor on AT&T: AT&T: Edge Zones Will Benefit from Our FirstNet Experience

From Telecompetitor:

AT&T plans to have 12 edge zones operational by year-end, said Jeremy Legg, the company’s chief technology officer, in a blog post yesterday. The goal is to work in combination with the company’s 5G network to support new applications requiring lower latency such as autonomous cars, as well as applications that haven’t been invented yet.

Edge zones are cloud resources located near the network edge to support standalone network cores and minimize the distance that communications must travel to and from end users.

As AT&T implements this infrastructure, it will draw on experience gained from operating the FirstNet public safety mobile network, Legg said. FirstNet can be used by all AT&T customers, but first responders have priority and preemption capability.

Legg said this is similar to how the standalone core and edge zones will enable AT&T to offer different managed services for different types of customers. Autonomous vehicles, which require low-latency connections would have priority over streaming video to kids in vehicles’ backseats.
