Vodafone Spain testing MEC technology to improve mobile gaming

Tuesday 5 December 2017 | 15:27 CET | News
Vodafone Spain has run a successful trial in Madrid of the potential of Mobile Edge Computing (MEC) technology to reduce network latency and improve mobile and online gaming. The company teamed up with Huawei and Hero Entertainment for the test, connecting 8 tablets to its commercial 4G network running the game Crisis Action 2. When the tablets were connected via the MEC architecture, latency was reduced by 90 percent (or 280 milliseconds) to just 20 milliseconds, substantially boosting the overall experience for the professional gamers taking part in the trial.
