NEXT STEP: Platform APIs 

Location Service

AdvantEDGE provides a built-in Location Service implementation that integrates with scenarios.

This service provides the following capabilities:

  • Learning location of a device within the network
  • Learning information on all devices located within a zone or connected to a point-of-access
  • Getting real-time updates on device location as they move across the network

Radio Network Information Service

AdvantEDGE provides a built-in RNIS implementation that integrates with scenarios.

This service provides the following capabilities:

  • Learning radio network conditions
  • Performing user plane measurements
  • Learning about devices connected to the radio node(s) associated with the mobile edge host and their radio access bearers
  • Getting real-time updates on devices radio conditions as they move across the network

Wireless Access Information Service

AdvantEDGE provides a built-in WAIS implementation that integrates with scenarios.

This service provides the following capabilities:

  • Learning terminal (station or STA) information
  • Learning access-point information
  • Getting real-time updates on devices WLAN conditions as they move across the network

Edge Platform Application Enablement Service

AdvantEDGE provides a built-in Edge Platform Application Enablement Service implementation that integrates with scenarios.

Mp1 reference point provides two different APIs: MEC Application Support and MEC Service Management

These APIs allow MEC Applications to interact with the MEC System, such as:

  • Application registration/deregistration (supported)
  • Service discovery & offering (supported)
  • Event notifications about service and application availability (supported)
  • Traffic rules, DNS (not supported)
  • Time of day (supported)

Application Mobility Service

AdvantEDGE provides a built-in Application Mobility Service implementation that integrates with scenarios.

Application Mobility Service provides support for relocation of user context between MEC hosts; application instance relocation not supported.

AMS defines three types of MEC application user-context transfer:

  • Application self-controlled (not supported)
    • Application triggers and executes the context transfer
    • Context is transferred from source to target application
    • MEC system’s role is to enable connectivity
  • Device assisted (not supported)
    • Device triggers and executes the context transfer
    • Context is kept on the device
    • MEC system’s role is to decide if application mobility is required
  • MEC assisted (supported)
    • MEC system triggers and assists the context transfer
    • Context is transferred from source to target application

Application State Transfer Service

AdvantEDGE provides a proprietary application state transfer service that facilitates state transfer between edge application instances.

This service provides the following capabilities:

  • Creating & configuring a Mobility Group (MG)
  • Registering edge applications to the MG
  • Executing application state transfers
