In this paper, the Multi-access Edge Computing (MEC) system architecture, as defined by the ETSI standards, is modeled as a multi-agent system. MEC system management services and application execution components are designed as software agents, facilitating distributed artificial intelligence capabilities in their operation and cooperation. Further, the integration of current agent technologies into the standardized MEC system is discussed. Lastly, a case study is presented on how to integrate an existing Internet of Things agent framework and agent-based edge application seamlessly to the MEC system.
