ETSI has come up with its new whitepaper on MEC, a much curated technology for making 5G a true application defined network. MEC will be a consultative driven approach for selecting the right kind of scenarios and application deploment as looking obvious here below recommendations.
As per the GS MEC 011  specification, a key baseline functionality of the MEC platform is to route IP packets to MEC applications which are meant to handle the traffic in the following different ways:
In Breakout mode, the session connection is redirected to a MEC application which is either hosted locally on the MEC platform or on a remote server. Typical breakout applications include local CDN, gaming and media content services, and enterprise LAN.
In In-line mode, the session connectivity is maintained with the original (Internet) server, while all traffic traverses the MEC application. In-line MEC applications include transparent content caching and security applications. In Tap mode, specified traffic is duplicated and forwarded to the tap MEC application, for example, when deploying virtual network probes or security applications.
In Independent mode, no traffic offloading function is needed, but still the MEC application is registered in the MEC platform and will receive other MEC services, such as DNS, Radio Network Information Service (RNIS), etc. Steering traffic to/from MEC applications is achieved by configuring the MEC’s local DNS and the MEC host’s data plane accordingly.
From the list above, it appears straightforward that the implementationspecific details of the data plane within the MEC host (as per the MEC architecture in GS MEC 003 ) and the MEC platform, which is meant to program the data plane through Mp2 interface, are impacted by the point where the MEC host is installed in the 4G architecture. Many choices are possible, but all in all they can be condensed down into some base scenarios.
Also going for 5G.
The common feature set of providing much-improved capabilities at the edge of the network, improved intelligence about resources needed at the edge, and the ability to charge for service delivered by cycles, memory, storage and bandwidth delivered, makes it very attractive to start the deployment now in early test sites, roll out to sites that show promise and need for MEC based applications, and then roll out as part of the 5G transition without losing any upfront investment from the earlier test deployments. Taking into account the above considerations, in the next sections we illustrate how MEC compatibility towards 5G networks may involve:
Integrating the MEC data plane with the 5G system’s one for routing traffic to the local data network and steering to an application;
An Application Function (AF) interacting with 5G control plane functions to influence traffic routing and steering, acquire 5G network capability information, and support application instance mobility;
The possibility of reusing the edge computing resources and managing/orchestrating applications and/or 5G network functions, while MEC still orchestrates the application services (chaining).

The key message is that the company will converge their network by 2022, which will mean (it says) that "customers will never again have to think or worry about which network they are connected to". We're not sure anybody did, but hey.
Included is a 'hybrid' service which will leverage both the BT network and EE 4G cellular offering which aims to make calls and data faster and more reliable.
The result is a service called BT Plus or EE Keep Connected which will be used to ensure that you won't be waiting for ages for a fault fix or new line.
It will also guarantee your line speeds - with 100Mbps minimum speed on the Ultrafast Fibre Plus service, which will also include a 4G hub as back-up. Maxed out speeds could be as high as 314Mbps.
By 2020, all customer service calls will be answered in the UK and Ireland, whilst BT Stores will return to High Streets, presumably leveraging floor space from the extensive EE Store network.For detail news click HERE

"The NFS project will boost the communication capabilities of the defence forces in major way leading to enhanced national operational preparedness," the committee said after the approval.
"The project will have forward linkages to other related industries such as telecom equipment manufacturing and other telecom related services," it added.
The new feature will basically run a speed test on each device and inform the users which devices need to be kept within a closer router range for a stronger connection.
Globally, an average of 18 devices are connected on each "Google Wifi" network.
