What is Mobile Edge Computing?

Multi-access Edge Computing (MEC) – formerly known as mobile edge computing – is a type of edge computing that extends the capabilities of cloud computing by bringing it to the edge of the network. MEC was borne out of the ETSI (European Telecommunications Standards Institute) initiative that originally focused on placing edge nodes on the mobile network, but it has now expanded to include the fixed (or eventually converged) network.

What Is Bitcoin Cold Storage?

Virtual currencies have expanded in size and strength in recent years, with Bitcoin leading the way. However, with their greater use has come an increase in hacking and fraud. And, because the regulatory structure is sluggish, Bitcoin owners have little options if their digital wallets are stolen. Bitcoins are accessible via keys (addresses and passcodes) stored in a Bitcoin wallet. If this digital wallet is not properly protected, hackers may be able to steal the keys and obtain access to the cash. Cold storage is the most secure method of storing a digital wallet. It entails holding Bitcoins offline — away from the Internet. While the technology is less handy than encryption, it prevents hackers from exploiting it.
