Cloud Gaming

Video games require a demanding network environment regarding bandwidth and jitter. This is one of the reasons that the research area of cloud/fog gaming has received increased research interest.

An overview of the MEC (Mobile Edge Computing) interaction processes. It depicts a small-scale instance of the considered MEC with eight players and four edge servers, where all previous cases are color-coded differently and all servers are utilized.
