Simple Edge Discovery

Simple Edge Discovery is a CAMARA-compliant API that returns the name of the closest network operator's Edge Computing platform to a user's device. 


Network operators might host multiple Edge Computing (MEC, or 'Edge') platforms in a given territory. Connecting your application to a server on the closest Edge Computing platform means packets travel the shortest distance between endpoints.


This normally results in the lowest round-trip latency.

What You Can Build With Vodafone’s Edge Computing APIs?

What you could do


Here are some of the things you could do:

  • Download movies much faster and stream games without any interruptions.
  • Enjoy VR on the go without wires or nausea-inducing lag.
  • Carry out remote surgery in near real time using robotic arms.
  • Conduct live holographic phone calls.
  • Benefit from AR guidance and training via smart glasses or car windscreens.
  • Help drones co-operate in emergency situations.
  • Enable driverless cars to communicate with each other and smart city infrastructure (such as traffic lights) more efficiently.

Customised connectivity experiences


Network slicing is a new way of delivering customised connectivity experiences.


It enables companies like Vodafone to create several different virtual networks on the same physical equipment.


Most importantly, these virtual networks are isolated from each other, which means one cannot impact the performance of another.
