CONTENTS

The main objectives of MEC are: optimization of mobile resources by hosting compute-intensive applications, pre-processing of the large data before sending it to the cloud, enabling cloud services within the close proximity of mobile subscribers, and providing context-aware services with the help of radio access network information.

In doing so, MEC enables a wide variety of applications, e.g. where real-time responses are strictly required, e.g. applications for driverless vehicles, virtual reality and augmented reality (VR/AR), robotics, and immerse media.

ETSI ISG officially changed the name of mobile edge computing to mean multi-access edge computing in 2017.

PREREQUISITES

NFV knowledge is recommended but not compulsory. Apis’ 5G System Overview is highly recommended for background knowledge.

Deployment of MEC in 5G

  • Deployment scenarios
  • Traffic steering
  • UE and application mobility
  • Capabilities exposure

3GPP System & Services Architecture 6 (Rel 17)

  • 5G Service Enabler Architecture Layer, SEAL, enabling common capabilities for quicker onboarding of new Verticals
  • Common API Framework to aid 3rd party applications access to 3GPP functions, CAPIF
  • Edge Computing enables deployment of Edge Apps, EDGEAPP, in compliance with 3GPP System for low latency and increased performance

MEC Use Cases in 5G

  • NEF, PCF, AMF, SMF, UPF
  • Application instantiation on MEC host
  • Traffic steering to the MEC host
  • Location updates and mobility events to MEC
  • Application offloading to a new MEC host
In late 2014, the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) Mobile Edge Computing Industry Specification Group (MEC ISG) initiated the mobile edge computing (MEC) concept.
