Transparent Access to
5G Edge Computing Services

The upcoming 5G telecommunication system is expected to provide high data rates and ultra-low latency to meet the challenging demands of future applications. Multi-access Edge Computing (MEC) is a central piece of the solution by providing a cloud computing platform at the edge of the radio access network. We argue that edge computing should be invisible to clients and should not require modifications in client applications. A prototype shows how requests to cloud services can be transparently redirected to the closest edge computing host by leveraging Software-Defined Networking, while still allowing to use the cloud as a fallback. In addition, we discuss how to scale our approach for large networks.
