Edge computing is a concept, described in TS 23.501, that enables operator and 3rd party services to be hosted close to the UE's access point of attachment, to achieve an efficient service delivery through the reduced end-to-end latency and load on the transport network. An Edge Computing Service Provider (ECSP) is a mobile network operator or a 3rd party service provider offering edge computing service. Details of edge hosting environment, are outside the scope of 3GPP (see clause 4.1 of TS 23.558).
For edge computing, it is essential that the Application Clients (ACs) are able to locate and connect with the most suitable application server available in the Edge Data Network (EDN), depending on the needs of the application. The edge enabler layer exposes APIs to support such capabilities. The edge computing capabilities supported by 3GPP are illustrated in the Figure 7.16.1-1 and as defined in TS 23.558.

The EES (see clause 6.3.2 of TS 23.558) is a component of the edge enabler layer which facilitates communication between the Application Clients running on the UE and the EAS deployed on the EDN. This includes EAS discovery by the UE and application context transfer between EASs for service continuity. The ECS (Edge Configuration Server) is another component of the edge enabler layer providing supporting functions needed for the EEC to connect with an EES. Figure 7.16.1-2 as defined in TS 23.558 shows the general architecture for enabling edge applications using a service-based representation.

Figure 7.16.1-3 shows an edge computing network, where EDN owned/managed by a ECSP (Edge Computing Service Provider) is communicating with the PLMN operator mobile network, and connected via UPF. The EDN contains EAS, EES and ECS. The PLMN operator is responsible for the deployment of NG-RAN, 5GC including AMF, SMF, UPF and NEF. Other models such as where the PLMN operator is the ECSP are possible.
The ECSP can have service agreement with one or more PLMN operators and may request the PLMN operators to connect EAS and EES with 5GC network functions.

7.16.3  Target identitiesp. 138

The LIPF present in the ADMF provisions the intercept information associated with the following target identities to the IRI-POI present in the EES:
  • GPSI.
  • EECID.

7.16.4  IRI eventsp. 138

The IRI-POI in the EES shall generate xIRI when it detects the following specific events or information in both roaming and non-roaming situations:
The EEC registration xIRI is generated when the IRI-POI present in the EES detects that an EEC (Edge Enabler Client) has performed a registration, registration update or deregistration procedure with the EES for a target.
The EAS discovery xIRI is generated when the IRI-POI present in the EES detects that an EEC has performed an EAS discovery request-response procedure with the EES for a target.
The EAS discovery subscription xIRI is generated when the IRI-POI present in the EES detects that an EEC has subscribed, updated its subscription and unsubscribed for EAS discovery reporting for a target.
The EAS discovery notification xIRI is generated when the IRI-POI present in the EES detects that an EES has notified the EEC about EAS discovery information for a target.
The application context relocation xIRI is generated when the IRI-POI present in the EES detects that an EEC has performed an ACR (Application Context Relocation) procedure with the EES with "ACR Action" set to. "ACR initiation request" or "ACR determination request" for a target.
The application context relocation information subscription xIRI is generated when the IRI-POI present in the EES detects that an EEC has subscribed, updated its subscription and unsubscribed for ACR information reporting for a target.
The application context relocation information notification xIRI is generated when the IRI-POI present in the EES detects that an EES has notified the EEC about ACR information for a target.
The EEC context relocation xIRI is generated when the IRI-POI present in the EES detects that an EEC context information has been exchanged between current serving EES (referred to as source EES in TS 23.558) and new serving EES (referred to as target EES in TS 23.558.
The start of interception with registered EEC is generated when the IRI-POI present in an EES detects that interception is activated on the target UE which EEC has already registered to the EES.

7.17.1  Backgroundp. 139

5G Media Streaming (5GMS) is a concept described in TS 26.501 and is defined as the delivery of time-continuous media as the predominant media. Streaming points to the fact that the media is predominantly sent only in a single direction and consumed as it is received. Additionally, the media content may be streamed as it is produced, referred to as live streaming. If media content being streamed is already produced, it is referred to as on-demand streaming.
The overall 5G Media Streaming Architecture is shown in Figure 4.1-2 of clause 4.1 of TS 26.501.

7.17.2  Architecturep. 139

The 5GMS AF shall provide the IRI-POI function. Figure 7.17.2-1 gives a reference point representation of the LI architecture with 5GMS AF as a CP NF providing the IRI-POI function for 5G Media Streaming. A 5GMS AF that is edge-enabled shall support EES functionality. A UE may request edge processing for a streaming session from the EES embedded in the 5GMS AF. EES provides the IRI-POI function as specified in clause 7.16.

7.17.3  Target identitiesp. 140

The LIPF present in the ADMF provisions the intercept information associated with the following target identities to the IRI-POI present in the 5GMS AF:
  • GPSI.

7.17.4  IRI eventsp. 140

The IRI-POI in the 5GMS AF shall generate xIRI when it detects the following specific events or information in both roaming and non-roaming situations:
The service access information xIRI is generated when the IRI-POI present in the 5GMS AF detects that a 5GMS AF has sent service access information to the Media Session Handler in the target UE. Service access information consists of a set of parameters and addresses that are needed by a UE to activate the reception of a downlink media streaming session or the transmission on an uplink media streaming session, perform dynamic policy invocation, consumption reporting and/or metrics reporting, and request AF-based network assistance.
The consumption reporting xIRI is generated when the IRI-POI present in the 5GMS AF detects that the Media Session Handler in the target UE has reported downlink media consumption to the 5GMS AF.
The metrics reporting xIRI is generated when the IRI-POI present in the 5GMS AF detects that the Media Session Handler in the target UE has reported QoE metrics reports to the 5GMS AF.
The dynamic policy invocation xIRI is generated when the IRI-POI present in the 5GMS AF detects that a Media Session Handler in the target UE requests a specific policy and charging treatment to be applied to a particular application data flow of a downlink or uplink media streaming session to the 5GMS AF.
The network assistance xIRI is generated when the IRI-POI present in the 5GMS AF detects that the Media Session Handler in the target UE requests a bit rate recommendation from the 5GMS AF or requests a delivery boost during the ongoing media streaming session from the 5GMS AF.
The unsuccessfulProcedure xIRI is generated when the IRI-POI present in the 5GMS AF detects an unsuccessful procedure or error condition for the Media Session Handler in the target UE.
The start of interception with already configured UE xIRI is generated when the IRI-POI present in the 5GMS AF detects that interception is activated on the target UE that has already received the service access information for the configuration of its media streaming sessions from the 5GMS AF.
