The present document describes various metrics which can potentially be improved through deploying a service on a MEC platform. Example use cases are used to demonstrate where improvements to a number of key performance indicators can be identified in order to highlight the benefits of deploying MEC for various services and applications. Furthermore, the present document describes best practices for measuring such performance metrics and these techniques are further exemplified with use cases.
Metrics described in the present document can be taken from service requirements defined by various organizations (e.g. 5G service requirements defined by Next Generation Mobile Networks (NGMN) or 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP)). An informative annex is used to document such desired and/or achieved ranges of performance which could be referenced from the main body of the present document.
