MEC - Multi access Edge Computing

MEC is a means by which compute/storage resources can be positioned closer to the subscriber’s point of attachment to the network. So, in the case of 5G for example, it’s possible that the UPF (User Plane Function) is situated at the RAN site in order to provide access to MEC resources that are in close proximity to the subscriber. Use cases for MEC are varied but include content caching, support for AR/VR and DNS caching.
