In January 2020, Verizon joined with America Movil, KT Corp., Rogers, Telstra, and Vodafone to create the 5G Future Forum (5GFF) to accelerate the development, deployment, and adoption of a globally interoperable 5G MEC ecosystem.

The discussion covered how global collaboration between carriers and ecosystem partners can help speed up the delivery of globally interoperable 5G MEC solutions.

The panelists also shared a peek behind the scenes related to the topics that 5GFF has been working on in its technical and commercial workstreams.
