MEC: Multi-Access Edge Computing

Why do we need applications at the edge of the network?

Latency sensitive applications – reduce latency and jitter

Applications with high bandwidth – reduce bandwidth in the network

If applications do not have these requirements its usually more efficient to host them in regional data centers or public cloud data centers

What is MEC?

Standards being defined by ESTI

Architectures driven by Telcos and vendors

Aligned with NFV and cloud-native architectures

Where are MEC edge nodes?

Radio sites or access central offices

Aggregation central offices

Regional central offices
