Deployment and configuration of MEC apps with Simu5G [article]

Alessandro Noferi, Giovanni Nardini, Giovanni Stea, Antonio Virdis
2021 arXiv   pre-print
In this paper we describe the implementation of a MEC model for the Simu5G simulator and illustrate how to configure the environment to evaluate MEC applications in both simulation and real-time emulation  ...  Multi-access Edge Computing (MEC) is expected to act as the enabler for the integration of 5G (and future 6G) communication technologies with cloud-computing-based capabilities at the edge of the network  ...  We also presented the configurations needed to run an MEC system -and MEC-related applications -with Simu5G, in both simulation and emulation modes.  ...

End-to-End Performance Evaluation of MEC Deployments in 5G Scenarios

Antonio Virdis, Giovanni Nardini, Giovanni Stea, Dario Sabella
2020 Journal of Sensor and Actuator Networks  
This paper evaluates different MEC deployment options, coherent with the respective 5G migration phases, using an accurate and comprehensive end-to-end (E2E) system simulation model (exploiting Simu5G  ...  for radio access and Intel CoFluent for core network and MEC), taking into account user-related metrics, such as response time or MEC latency.  ...  Conflicts of Interest: Dario Sabella is affiliated with Intel, which funded some of the activities that are described in this paper.  ...

Simu5G – An OMNeT++ library for end-to-end performance evaluation of 5G networks1

Giovanni Nardini, Dario Sabella, Giovanni Stea, Purvi Thakkar, Antonio Virdis
2020 IEEE Access  
Simu5G allows users to simulate the data plane of 5G New Radio deployments, in an end-to-end perspective and including all protocol layers, making it a valuable tool for researchers and practitioners interested  ...  Moreover, we show how Simu5G can be used to evaluate Multi-access Edge Computing (MEC) and Cellular Vehicle-to-everything (C-V2X) services offered through a 5G network.  ...  modelling ENDC deployments, FDD access, D2D communications, MEC and C-V2X.  ...

Scalable Real-time Emulation of 5G Networks with Simu5G1

Giovanni Nardini, Giovanni Stea, Antonio Virdis
2021 IEEE Access  
We present a thorough evaluation of the Simu5G's emulation capabilities, showing that networks with hundreds of simulated users and tens of cells can be emulated on a single desktop machine.  ...  In this work, we describe how to use Simu5G, a new end-to-end simulator of 5G networks based on OMNeT++, as a real-time emulator.  ...  With Simu5G running the MEC infrastructure in real time, a MEC app developer will be able to test a MEC app over a mixed communication/computation emulated infrastructure, in controllable experimental  ...
