How a real-time kernel reduces latency in telco edge clouds | Ubuntu
Telco edge clouds are among the most popular and promising technologies with great potential to deliver performance improvements. An edge cloud is an infrastructure to run software located close to devices and end-users.
This type of local deployment brings several performance benefits, one of which is reduced latency. Edge computing services can offer timely response to events and actions at the network edge. This is possible thanks to the advancements in mobile telecommunication technologies. Various sectors, such as manufacturing, healthcare, transport and automotive can achieve faster interaction between edge computing services and devices, and with higher reliability. The fast and reliable set of communication services necessary to facilitate efficiency for these sectors are collectively known as ultra reliable low latency communications (URLLC) services.
Several technological capabilities are necessary to meet the performance requirements of URLLC services, one of which is…
