Abstract

Multi-access Edge Computing (MEC) is expected to act as the enabler for the integration of 5G (and future 6G) communication technologies with cloud-computing-based capabilities at the edge of the network. This will enable low-latency and context-aware applications for users of such mobile networks. In this paper we describe the implementation of a MEC model for the Simu5G simulator and illustrate how to configure the environment to evaluate MEC applications in both simulation and real-time emulation modes.
