Specialist Task Force 551:
MEC Testing Framework

Who we are:

Team leader:
Team Members:


What we do

Defining a testing framework for Multi-Access Edge Computing technologies implemented according to the standards of ETSI ISG MEC.

The testing frameworks collects requirements and features to be tested for several components in MEC systems.

For more details, see our Terms of Reference

Why we do it

MEC stakeholders need to understand what constitutes the minimum set of mandatory functions and capabilities, possibly required by a specific use case, and what is the minimum set of information needed to test the system components for conformance. In addition, interoperability considerations are becoming important issues.

The outcome of STF 551 will influence the standardization activities including protocol and test specifications in ETSI ISG MEC, by providing a testing framework and by offering feedback on possible interoperability problems.

How we do it

The STF will review and analyse ETSI ISG MEC specification to collect and categorise requirements and features needed for MEC compliance and interoperability.


The testing framework developed will be contributed to MEC 025 work item of ISG MEC.

Time plan

STF 551 will deliver a stable draft of the target work item by the end of 2018 and support the finalization of the deliverable until April 2019.
