- With the explosive growth of smart devices and the advent of many new applications, data traffic over Internet has grown dramatically. Due to high latency and heavy burden on the backhaul links, traditional centralized network architecture cannot accommodate such challenges. Therefore, new architectures bring network functions to the edge of network, such as small-cell base stations and access point. Mobile Edge Computing (MEC) has been recognized as a promising technique to provide caching, computation and communication functionalities at the edge of cellular networks. In this paper, we first give an overview of mobile edge networks, including architecture and features. Next, a distributed and local-first computing (DLFC) model based on MEC is proposed, including distributed computing model and transmission model. Subsequently, the comparison between DLFC and centralized cloud computing (CCC) model is given and analyzed service delay and performance. Finally, the conclusion of this paper and future direction is presented as well.
