    The proposed project aims to research and development Mobile Edge Computing (MEC) and Service Function Chaining (SFC) technologies over a virtualized LTE mobile core network to enable service aware mobile core network. Mobile Edge Computing (MEC) can offload data traffic and processed at the network edge cloud, without impacts to mobile core network architecture. MEC provides a cloud computing capability near the network edge which increases user experience, e.g. virtual reality, cache, video analytic. Service Function Chaining (SFC) enables application based traffic routing (instead traditional address based routing). With MEC and SFC working together, more variety of applications with greater flexibility and security can be offered. The technologies developed in this project also enables applications (such as virtual tour, IoT) to be hosted in the mobile edge, which provides optimization of traffic latency and ability to adjust the application behavior at different radio conditions. The industry is very interested in MEC and its related technologies. The project team is having commercial discussions three companies (two telecom equipment manufacturer/system integrate and one satellite equipment manufacturer) with interests to commercialize the developed technologies (with contributions of over 20%).
