Project proves: Networked vehicle applications need fast computer access
Multi-Access Edge Computing (MEC) is a key technology to enable secure networked driving. This is the most important result of the Car2MEC project after two years of intensive testing and field trials by Continental, Deutsche Telekom, Fraunhofer ESK, MHP and Nokia on the A9 “Digital Autobahn” test field.

Nokia's Multi-Access Edge Computing (MEC) technology brings cloud computing resources closer to the road, enabling faster response times (latency) on the network compared to centralized cloud architectures. This is important for applications such as emergency or congestion alerting, where milliseconds can make a big difference. Tests have confirmed that time-critical information in an LTE network with MEC-based edge cloud can be transferred from one vehicle to another in less than 30ms. The performance of latency-critical and data-intensive applications such as HD positioning and HD cards also improved significantly when supported by an edge cloud infrastructure.
