SKT teams with Bridge Alliance on 5G MEC

14 JAN 2020

SK Telecom (SKT) partnered with the Bridge Alliance, a consortium of Asian and MEA operators, to accelerate the development of 5G and create a pan-Asian mobile edge computing (MEC) ecosystem.

In a statement, the operator said through the Global MEC Task Force, it aims to lead the expansion of 5G MEC in the region and develop overseas market opportunities for its technologies and services.

SKT, the largest mobile operator in South Korea, said it will share 5G and MEC knowledge with other Bridge Alliance members, help set international standards to build an interoperable MEC platform, and work with alliance members to jointly develop relevant technologies and services.

As the first chair of the task force, SKT is hosting the first MEC workshop with Bridge Alliance this week at its headquarters, to identify potential regional MEC-based use-cases, and discuss business models and commercialisation plans.

Lee Kang-won, head of cloud labs at SKT (pictured, far right), said the company is committed to contributing to the expansion of the global 5G ecosystem and will work closely with alliance members to accelerate their progress in the technologies.
