MEC 5G Hackathon: The MEC 5G Challenge (September 24, 2021: Online)
September 24, 2021 @ 3:00 pm - 5:30 pm
TSDSI and IIT Delhi jointly organized the “MEC 5G Hackathon: The MEC 5G Challenge” on 24 September 2021 at 1500 – 1730 hrs IST. A research project entitled “Building an end-to-end 5G Test Bed” has been executed as a multi-institute collaborative project with participation from eight institutes- IIT Bombay, IIT Delhi, IIT Madras, IIT Kanpur, IIT Hyderabad, IISc Bangalore, CEWiT and SAMEER. Every institute has contributed in a complementary manner to the test bed, based on their research interests and expertise.
MEC Hackathon: MEC (Multi-access Edge Computing) can serve many key 5G use cases. Most of them are related to application scenarios specifically targeted to vertical markets of the 5G era. The purpose of this was to demonstrate the usage of the MEC system as an enabler for different use cases and business objectives, helping all stakeholders to develop a diverse, open MEC ecosystem. Examples of MEC-enabled vertical segments applications include video analytics, drones, haptics and many more.
Developers and their teams were invited for developing applications for advanced services in MEC-enabled 5G network environment, using ETSI MEC technologies. The participants showcased their developed applications, integrated upon the MEC 5G test bed.
Schedule: 24 September 2021, 1500 – 1730 hrs IST
