    This book provides a complete and strategic overview of Multi-Access Edge Computing (MEC). It covers network and technology aspects, describes the market scenarios from the different stakeholders’ point of view, and analyzes deployment aspects and actions to engage the ecosystem. MEC exists in and supports a highly complex "5G world" in which technologists and non-technology decision makers must act in concert and do so within a large interconnected ecosystem of which MEC is just one, albeit an important, part. Divided into three sections, with several chapters in each, the book addresses these three key aspects: technology, markets, and ecosystems.
