ETSI Standards-based Architecture
The MEC Architecture is made up of three key elements:
- The MEC Hosting Infrastructure Management System which consists of the SETO-1000 Server, virtualization layer and the virtualization manager.
- The MEC Application Platform Management System which provides traffic control, RAN information services, communication services, and service registry. It is also the key interface to the third element.
- The Application Management System is a virtualized machine for MEC applications
The SETO-1000 can also utilize ADLINK's Application-Ready Intelligent Platform (ARiP) software, which includes PacketManager, remote management functions, and system management APIs for application developers.
ARiPs enable customers to focus primarily on their application instead of the IoT platform building blocks required for cloud computing.
