SK Telecom said on March 16 that it had proposed to ITU-T the establishment of the "Federated Multi-access Edge Computing" standard to improve the scope of 5G MEC technology and services.

"Federated Multi-Access Edge Computing" establishes separate channels that can link 5G MEC systems within each carrier so that service providers can provide the same 5G MEC services regardless of region or carrier.

Once 5G MEC link is available based on international standards, consumers can use 5G MEC service regardless of region or service provider. Service developers can also improve development efficiency by reducing the process for optimizing the same services to each carrier's 5G MEC system.

SK Telecom will study the structure, signal specifications and requirements of the "Federated Multi-access Edge Computing" technology, with the aim of completing international standards by 2022 in the study group (SG11 Q7) that studies "5G MEC standards for AI, big data and mobility services" within ITU-T.

The research will be led by Lee Jong-min, head of Tech Innovation Group, who was appointed Rapporteur for the SG11 Q7, SK Telecom said.

SK Telecom launched the "Telecom Edge Cloud TF" on March 1 for empirical research on 5G MEC links with nine global carriers, including GSMA and Deutsche Telekom, EE, KDDI, Orange, Telefonica, Telecom Italy, China Unicom, Singtel and NTT DoCoMo.

The adoption of the standard will serve as a cornerstone for building an environment that can provide customers with ultra-low delay services based on 5G MEC anywhere in the world," said Lee Jong-min, head of SK Telecom's Tech Innovation Group.
