Service Overview

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


  • RNIS: Implements ETSI MEC012 northbound API with a custom integration with AdvantEDGE APIs

API Version

AdvantEDGE Integration

  • RNIS is implemented as a single sandbox pod within AdvantEDGE, providing service for all applications running as part of that sandbox

  • 3 components:

    • Northbound Interface (NBI) & Core - (tightly coupled) implements the RNIS API & internal service logic
    • Southbound Interface (SBI) - (decoupled from NBI/Core) implements glue logic between AdvantEDGE & the NBI/Core

    • Threads:
      • Main thread - (NBI/Core) Handles requests to the RNIS API (server) from users (i.e. scenario pods)
      • NBI event thread - (NBI/Core) Handles event channel from SBI (for RNIS subscriptions)
      • SBI event thread - (SBI) Handle events from AdvantEDGE (scenario updates, mobility events, etc.) & updates RNIS database)
    • Supports hot-restart
      • User / app subscriptions with and without a duration parameter survive RNIS pod restarts
