LG, Microsoft join hands on infotainment, management solutionsSeoul, Sep 20 (IANS) LG Uplus Corp, a major South Korean mobile carrier, said on Sunday that it is joining forces with Google to jointly develop 5G mobile edge computing (MEC) technology.

Under the partnership, LG Uplus will work with Google Cloud, which will provide its artificial intelligence and machine learning technologies, to develop new services that utilize MEC on the telecom operator’s 5G network.

MEC is a key technology in delivering ultra-low latency data communication in 5G networks, and it is expected to boost upcoming services, such as smart factories, autonomous cars and cloud gaming.

It minimises latency by providing a “shortcut” for data transmission through small-scale data centres.

LG Uplus demonstrated the technology last October by transferring a vehicle’s live-video feed to a car at its rear as part of its self-driving vehicle project.

The new partnership comes as South Korean telecom operators have rushed to develop the budding 5G technology, reports Yonhap news agency.
