  1. Hi, 

    I'd like to setup a validation environment, as the Detail Slide shows. For the required 4G/5G Simulator, is there any open source or free simulator you suggest?


    1. Glad that you are intereseted in the BP. We are working on the CN emulator, and will get it ready by the end of this year. But please be noted that it won't be a EPC or 5GC, but just an emuatlor that implements a few APIs relevant to MEC. 

  2. Hi,

    Will you support Ubuntu 18.x? Is there any concern or reason so that Ubuntu 16.x is suggested only? Just would like to know if there will be problems if I use Ubuntu 18.x.


  3. So far, I don't see any risk of using 18.04... Validation will be performed against both 16.x and 18.x.

  4. Hi,

    To play MEC application with real handheld device, I'm looking for decent simulation solution, and considering to use USRP B210 SDR + OAI as the eNB and EPC. Performance evaluation could also be tested with it. Anyone has suggestion? It would be appreciated, thanks!

  5. Hi,

     I am looking for a open source MEC pkg to explore the functions. do we have any MEC pkg released?

    1. Did you mean edge applications that can be deployed on the MEC platform?

  6. Thanks in Advance,

    I have few questions.

    1. Which openness release provides Edge connector and Edge gateway. Not able to found in OpenNess20.09.
    2. Let us know which openness release to use for deploying  NGC as there are lot's of new release after 20.03.
  7. I am trying to install the blueprint by following the instructions.  However after cloning the  repository, I do not see a file named  Where can I find this file? Thanks.
