Beyond Speed: The Real Promise of 5G Lies in On-Demand QoS

Imec researchers present 'EdgeApp,' a network application that allows users to dynamically interact with 5G networks’ (core) settings based on real-time bandwidth and latency requirements.


5G technology supports high-quality video streaming and reduced latency.

Yet, the real promise of 5G lies in its ability to dynamically support users’ quality of service (QoS) requirements – on demand and in real-time.

This is the focus of a demonstration hosted on the Nokia stand at this year's Mobile World Congress – featuring imec’s EdgeApp middleware.
