With the spread of smart cities through 5G and the development of IoT devices, the number of services requiring firm assurance of high capacity and ultra-low delay quality in various forms is increasing. However, continuous growth of large data makes it difficult for a centralized cloud to ensure quality of service. For this, a variety of distributed application architecture researches, such as MEC (Mobile|Mutli-access Edge Computing), are in progress. However, vendor-dependent MEC technology based on VNF (Virtual Network Function) has performance and scalability issues when deploying a variety of 5G-based services. This paper proposes PRISM-MECR, an SDN (Software Defined Network) based hardware accelerated MEC router using P4 programmable chip, to improve forwarding performance while minimizing load of host CPU cores in charge of forwarding among MEC technologies.
