ETSI MEC MOBILE EDGE COMPUTING FORUM

 
 

 

 
 

 

Layer123 is delighted to host this first MEC Forum, which has been organised by ETSI MEC ISG and WG leadership

 
 

 

The work of the MEC initiative aims to unite the telco and IT-cloud worlds, providing IT and cloud-computing capabilities within the RAN (Radio Access Network). The ISG MEC will specify the elements that are required to enable applications to be hosted in a multi-vendor Mobile-edge Computing environment.

The scope of work on MEC will be highly focused and complement the work on NFV. MEC will enable applications and services (Layer 4 and above) to be hosted 'on top' of the mobile network elements, i.e. above the network layer. These applications and services can benefit from being in close proximity to the customer and from receiving local radio-network contextual information.
