KT product now a global standardA network management technology developed by KT has been adopted as an international standard, the company announced Tuesday.
KT said that its network management technology won the status from the Internet Engineering Task Force, an open standards organization aimed at developing and promoting Internet-related standards.
Known as multi-access management services, the technique is designed to ensure the most efficient data delivery route among different types of wireless communication networks - such as 4G, LTE and 5G - in providing mobile edge computing.
Mobile edge computing refers to technology that brings computation and data storage closer to the mobile devices being used.
The network management technique was developed through collaboration with U.S. tech heavyweights Intel and Broadcom. KT also collaborated with Nokia Bell Labs, a research institute run by Finnish company Nokia.
The Multiple Access Management Services can better support advanced technologies including artificial intelligence, connected cars and the operation of smart factories, as they require higher data speeds, ultra-low latency, more reliability and massive network capacity.
“A wide range of KT’s networking technologies have been selected as the standards in the industry, including key 5G technologies and intellectual properties in the process of commercializing 5G,” said Lee Jong-sik, head of KT Institute of Convergence Technology.
