Azure public multi-access edge compute (MEC)

Deliver high-performance, low-latency applications and immersive experiences at the operator edge with integrated Azure Compute and operator 5G connectivity.

Enhance application performance and experience at the operator edge

Azure public MEC integrates Azure Compute and edge-optimized Azure services with the mobile operator's public 5G network connectivity. Use the solution to rapidly develop and deliver a broad array of low-latency applications and solve critical business problems at the operator edge.

Analyze data closer to where it's captured—on industrial Internet of Things (IoT) devices, cars, smartphones, or any other edge-enabled devices—to produce better insights for faster responses. Use Azure public MEC to deliver smarter edge computing solutions for real-world business problems.

Get the flexibility you need to rapidly deploy innovative solutions, increase efficiency, and optimize costs with Azure public MEC. Leverage the operator's 5G connectivity to access new 5G and edge services without managing infrastructure. Move only the low-latency components you need to address a particular use case from your cloud-based solution to the edge. Use network slicing features to distinguish traffic by use case and offer applications on-demand based on users' needs.

Bring the power of Azure Compute, automation, and developer experience to the operator edge with Azure public MEC. Use Azure tools and services to deploy, manage, scale, and monitor your applications. Leverage industry-leading Azure security and comprehensive compliance to deploy MEC solutions with confidence.

Build solutions with Azure services and validated applications from a rich ecosystem of partners developing solutions for the edge. Develop applications that address specific connectivity, security, and low-latency use cases for key industries such as retail, healthcare, and gaming.
