ETSI multi-access edge computing releases NFV and network slicing studies

Wednesday 15 January 2020 | 10:00 CET | News
The ETSI Multi-access Edge Computing group (MEC ISG) has announced the release of two reports as part of its Phase 2 work. The report ETSI GR MEC 027 studies the impact of alternative virtualisation technologies, identifying the additional support that needs to be provided when MEC applications run on containers. Building on related work developed by the ETSI NFV group, it defines the usage of such technologies in a MEC environment, the impact on implementation of MEC systems and applications and the potential updates of future ETSI MEC standards. The institute said the report highlights that most of the ETSI MEC specifications are virtualisation-technology agnostic, resulting in very few updates of existing standards.

The second report, ETSI GR MEC 024, examines network slicing on edge computing systems and the impact on future ETSI MEC specifications. It provides important use cases and examples of how network slicing may be addressed in edge computing systems, such as one including the description, use case recommendations and evaluation of a network slice integrating MEC applications and using 3GPP elements. Other use cases address how you can have multiple tenants in a network slice or how efficient an end-to-end multi-slice support for MEC-enabled 5G deployments can be. Four network slicing concepts have been described and two prioritised for the time being, said ETSI.

The group released its first set of Phase 2 specifications last year, incorporating the widened scope of ETSI MEC to apply to any access technology and take into account integration with network functions virtualisation (NFV).
