InterDigital to Demonstrate Latest in Mobile Edge Computing at MEC World Congress

WILMINGTON, Del., Sept. 21, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Mobile edge computing is rapidly gathering pace within the industry as a key enabler for the transition to 5G and the IoT. InterDigital, Inc. (NASDAQ:IDCC), a mobile technology research and development company, has been at the forefront of this development and announced today that the company will demonstrate its latest innovations at Mobile Edge Computing (MEC) World Congress being held September 20 through September 22, 2016 in Munich, Germany.

ETSI has partnered with Informa to present the first ETSI MEC Proof-of-Concept (PoC) Zone at the 2016 MEC World Congress enabling multi-vender PoC projects to be demonstrated first-hand. InterDigital has been selected as one of six PoCs to present within the PoC zone throughout the show alongside other industry leaders such as Intel, Nokia, Telecom Italy and Vodafone.

The company will demonstrate FLIPS — Flexible IP-based Services, an operator-based MEC application designed to accelerate delivery of IP-based content and streaming media. FLIPS reinvents the approach to IP-based services through the introduction of a software-defined networking and network function virtualization enabled network fabric.

The FLIPS PoC was accepted as the fourth ETSI ISG MEC PoC in February 2016 based off a proposal developed by a team that consists of InterDigital, Intracom, CVTC Limited and University of Essex. InterDigital has been driving the development of the flexible service routing platform that underpins the proof-of-concept. The technology is based off of InterDigital’s work in two EU-funded collaborations – POINT (“IP Over ICN – the Better IP”) and RIFE (“architectuRe for an Internet For Everybody”).

In addition to the demonstrations, Scott Hergenhan, Member of Technical Staff, InterDigital, will present “Utilizing The Edge to Optimize Content Delivery” on September 22, 2016 at 12:10 p.m.
