The ETSI Multi-Access Edge Computing (MEC) started with the idea that a base station can host a server. The benefits of being close are low latency -- critical for AR/VR applications -- and processing information close to the producer so that all does not need to be transmitted.

The Akraino MEC API Framework project creates tools that translate the ETSI APIs to programming language interfaces, and provides a repository where applications can find available APIs. The Akraino uMEC project is an ultra-small MEC platform that can be deployed in a lightpole in a Smart City, along a Smart Highway, or in a liftfork in a Smart Factory.

We tested the uMEC concept in a hackathon in Finland, with the task to create new applications for smart city denizens. We are planning to create a demo platform next that would allow the participants to create applications that will use real MEC APIs.
