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
