openLEON: an open source muLti-access Edge cOmputiNg emulator

openLEON is an open source muLti-access Edge cOmputiNg end-to-end emulator that operates from the edge data center to the mobile users. openLEON bridges the functionalities of existing emulators for data centers and mobile networks, i.e., Mininet and srsLTE, and makes it possible to evaluate and validate research ideas on all the components of an end-to-end mobile edge architecture.
The presentation of the work at ACM WiNTECH can be found on SlideShare.

Installation and Set-up

For installation, please consult our wiki page. A detailed pdf version that explains step by step how to set-up openLEON with code snippets and recommendations can be found in the documentation folder of the repository. See the Downloads page for downloading a VM image containing Mininet, the EPC applications and the scripts used for routing.

We make available the scripts of the experiments performed to make easier the replication for the research community in our repository under the folders Mininet/Containernet-examples.
