SK Telecom (SKT)* and Intel collaborated on testing of the next generation of the SKT 5G MEC reference architecture. SKT has designed this MEC platform to be deployed in a variety of scenarios, including at a central office, at the network edge, or on a customer premises. The tests described in this paper show performance impact on the SKT 5G MEC from applying Intel® Speed Select Technology – Base Frequency (Intel® SST-BF), a feature that is available on select models of 2nd generation Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors, and Intel® Optane™ DC persistent memory.
