Indiana’s Purdue University is a top public research institution focused on creative use of technology. Scientists needed a highly secure, reliable, and fast platform to test and launch advanced research projects.


Researchers accelerate discovery by moving compute power to the network edge

  • Challenges

    Purdue Research Foundation launched the Indiana 5G Zone. Here, researchers can test and develop 5G-enabled technologies. This initiative requires a highly secure, low latency, fast-processing, mobile network architecture.

  • Results

    Improved productivity, greater security (the data is processed and resides on the local network), and higher computing speeds for data processing in near-real time—critical for highly advanced research into new technologies.

  • Solution

    AT&T Multi-Access Edge Computing (MEC) helps improve the productivity of the research staff at Purdue’s Indiana 5G Zone by bringing cloud computing capability to the network’s edge.
