Multi-access Edge Computing (MEC or sometimes MAEC), formerly Mobile Edge Computing, is a network architecture that enables cloud computing capability at the edge of the network. Originally proposed as capabilities provided at the edge of a cellular network, it has been extended to be the edge of any network. In fact the original proposal states that capabilities are provided within the RAN.The basic idea behind MEC is that by running applications and processing tasks closer to the subscriber or user, certain applications run better – those with low latency or high bandwidth, for example – and network congestion can be...

5G -

Background 5G is set to change the picture significantly in terms of spectrum allocation and use, and in this article, we aim to provide more clarity in terms of the many issues related to the licensing, standardisation / harmonisation, and use of spectrum as we head towards the 5G era. Spectrum is highly sought after, primarily because it allows an operator to increase capacity on the network efficiently. The additional spectrum can be added to existing base stations which reduces the number of new base stations needed. This makes spectrum highly valuable, hence regulators will charge a fee for licensed...
