Service Overview

AdvantEDGE provides a built-in V2X Information Service implementation that integrates with scenarios.

This feature provides the following capabilities:

  • Predicting journey-specific QoS for vehicular UEs
  • Obtaining V2X provisioning information
  • Publishing and subscribing for V2X messages


  • V2X Information Service: Implements ETSI MEC030 northbound API with a custom integration with AdvantEDGE APIs

Northbound API

AdvantEDGE Integration

  • V2X Information service 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 V2X Information Service 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 V2X Information Service API (server) from users (i.e. scenario pods)
    • NBI event thread - (NBI/Core) Handles event channel from SBI (for V2X Information Service subscriptions)
    • SBI event thread - (SBI) Handle events from AdvantEDGE (scenario updates, mobility events, etc.) & updates V2X Information Service database)
  • Supports hot-restart
    • User / app subscriptions with and without a duration parameter survive location service pod restarts
