Special Issue Call for Papers


With the exponential growth of data traffic due to ubiquitous portable devices, machine to machine communications, and novel user-centric applications, such as augmented/virtual reality, the demands for a new computing paradigm are increasing. The large pool of traditional cloud resources and services has contributed to the development of cloud computing. However, state-of-the-art cloud computing turns into a problem for communication-intensive applications, which need to meet the stringent delay requirements. The problem becomes more severe with the introduction of new data-intensive applications in the Internet of Things era. Multi-access Edge Computing which processes data at the nearest available nodes is emerging as a promising computation architecture to handle these ever-increasing demands. It aims to enable flexible and rapid deployment of new applications and services for customers at the cellular base stations or other edge nodes. It allows cellular operators to open their radio access network to authorized third parties, and moves the computing of traffic and services to the edge of the network to achieve low latency.



However, there are several challenges that need to be addressed before we can enjoy the benefits of the advanced Multi-access Edge Computing architecture. For example, these problems include the heterogeneity of different kinds of devices, the deployment of services and applications, and the task allocation and offloading, as well as resource management. This Special Issue will bring together leading researchers and developers to explore recent advanced technologies for Multi-access Edge Computing, especially in the wireless personal communications field, in terms of system, service and application.
