Abstract

Increased data traffic continues significantly, especially in Indonesia. Based on a survey by Hootsuite-We are Social, it is said that in 2018 the penetration of Internet users in Indonesia is up to 50% of the total population of Indonesia or amounting to 132.7 billion people. 91% of Internet use is accessed from a smartphone or tablet. Data traffic on PT XYZ cellular operators is increasing every year. In 2017, up to 2 million TeraByte of traffic is handled. This has become a problem in terms of traffic and capacity at PT XYZ as a cellular operator. A solution to these problems is needed, so that XYZ operators can continue to be competent in serving users in terms of data access and Internet access. Based on the literature and previous information, the addition of the amount of processing capacity and processing of data packages is the answer to the problem. Addition of capacity can be done with three solutions choices, namely: the implementation of the Multi-access Edge Computing (MEC) architecture, the addition of the GGSN module, and the addition of the GGSN to existing networks. In this study, an analysis of the feasibility of MEC for PT XYZ operators will be conducted. Analysis of three solutions choices will be carried out. The analysis conducted in this study is seen from the aspects of technological feasibility. The results of this study indicate that MEC implementation is feasible to implement. MEC implementation solution is the best choice, which has capacity 32.293 Gbps in total and has ability to handle traffic till 2023. There are two scenarios in the implementation of the MEC, first is done after the implementation of the temporary solution in October 2021 and the second is immediately at the beginning of 2020.
