Abstract: Radio Access Network (RAN) disaggregation is transforming mobile networks, as it allows the single click instantiation of base stations in the Cloud, and can potentially ease the integration of heterogeneous technologies for wireless access. At the same time, Multi-access Edge Computing is proven to minimize the latency for accessing services located at the network edge. In this demo, we showcase a disaggregated heterogeneous Cloud-RAN, consisting of cellular and WiFi infrastructure, providing access to edge resources placed on the fronthaul of the network to multi-homed UEs. We experiment with different wireless technologies and placements for the MEC service, and illustrate our experimental results.
