MEC (Multi-Access Edge Computing) Commonly called “Mobile Edge Computing”



MEC is an idea for network architectures that brings what are normally described as cloud computing services to the “edge” of a mobile network – generally at the base station, or at a point of aggregation of several base stations.

The vision of MEC is to allow companies to operate application-specific servers close to mobile devices (both geographically, and from a latency perspective). The intended benefits of MEC are to reduce network congestion and latency, and therefore give users a better experience.
