The purpose of the laboratory is to enable an industry-grade mobile edge compute platform that serves both as a research vehicle to explore improvements to existing protocols and to design novel applications and as an educational vehicle for students to experience hands-on the process of building applications for mobile devices. The laboratory hence is built to interface with open/public resources within Samueli School (Makerspace and Robotics Laboratory) and with research groups.

The laboratory is the culmination of support from UCLA’s Information Technology Services (ITS) and industry collaborators. Current industry collaborators include Verizon, Quanta Computing, Ixia and MobiledgeX (Deutche Telecom). We would like to thank our sponsors for their support.
