As the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) led initiative in its adoption phase, the requirements to roll out new services to the edge in the network have coined and there are several deployments and business models for the Mobile Edge Computing (MEC) platforms. Ultimately, processing, storage, media streaming and security functions have been migrated to the edge for mobile deployments.

With the introduction of IoT consisting of multiple vertical networks within the core network infrastructure, Mobile Edge Computing defines a set of requirements to roll out new services. Since form factor, processing and storage capabilities are the key elements in mobile network, Network Service Chaining and Service Chain Provisioning are becoming the new business model with NFV deployments.
