The progressive distribution of the components in Mobile Edge Computing at different locations, need to be controlled from a centralized logical unit. This paper proposes a new controlling unit between the mobile transport network and the cloud infrastructure, called Mobile Edge Computing Manager, which reuse the concept of the Black Rider, which is contextand policy-based itself. This centralized processing unit bundled informations from the mobile transport network as well as from the cloud…

Mobile Edge Service for Intersystem Handover
TLDR
A new mobile edge service is proposed that enables 3rd party control on intersystem handover on the basis of specific policy and is described by information flows illustrating the basic functionality, data models that provide mediation functions, and handover state models considering some implementation issues.
Open Access to Intersystem Handover Control Using Multi-access Edge Computing
TLDR
A new mobile edge service that enables 3rd party control on inter system handover is proposed that allows authorized applications to initiate device pre-registration in the target access network and then based on application-specific policy to initiate intersystem handover.
Third Party Initiated WLAN Offloading
TLDR
The present research proposes a method for defining mobile edge service that may be used by third party application to control offloading following a specific policy.
A Taxonomy for Management and Optimization of Multiple Resources in Edge Computing
TLDR
The analysis shows that resource management at the edge requires a deeper understanding of how methods applied at different levels and geared towards different resource types interact, and the impact of mobility and collaboration schemes requiring incentives are expected to be different in edge architectures compared to the classic cloud solutions.
Where Resources Meet at the Edge
TLDR
This work proposes and elaborate on a preliminary taxonomy for edge resource management, together with a substantial review of works in the area, and identifies some research challenges.
Incoming Traffic Control of Fronthaul in 5G Mobile Network for Massive Multimedia Services
TLDR
Through the proposed method, transmission efficiency for massive multimedia traffic in the fronthaul can be improved and the performance is validated through computer simulation.
A combined network control approach for the edge cloud and LPWAN‐based IoT services
TLDR
This paper takes the approach of moving the control of the LPWAN to the edge cloud, which provides computing and storage environments at base stations and exhibits improved performance for IoT data transmission.
Remote Software Update in Trusted Connection of Long Range IoT Networking Integrated With Mobile Edge Cloud
TLDR
A software update method in trusted connection of IoT networking using a low-power wide area network (LPWAN) as a long-range IoT networking technology and a mobile edge cloud to improve computing efficiency in an access network that consists of IoT devices with insufficient resources is proposed.
Data Transmission Using K-Means Clustering in Low Power Wide Area Networks with Mobile Edge Cloud
TLDR
Data transmission considering device characteristics is proposed, which employs a k-means clustering algorithm to classify devices according to the traffic characteristic and allows end-devices to avoid collisions and improve transmission efficiency in LPWAN with long delay.

TLDR
This paper proposes a new framework for generic context- and policy-based traffic distribution in heterogeneous wireless networks, called Black Rider, and a selection of use cases that illustrate how the framework can be exploited to gain benefits in important areas, such as (re-) attach-, handover-, and offloading behaviour, energy consumption and geolocation.
Mobile Edge Computing
TLDR
Future wireless networks will provide communication infrastructure support to this ubiquitous computing paradigm, but at the same time they can also utilize the new-found computing power to drastically improve communication efficiency, expand service variety, shorten service delay, and reduce operation expenses.
Adaptive VM Handoff Across Cloudlets
TLDR
This paper proposes VM handoff as a technique for seamlessly transferring VMencapsulated execution to a more optimal offload site as users move, and can perform handoff in roughly a minute even over limited WANs by adaptively reducing data transferred.
