The progressive distribution of the components in Mobile Edge Computing at different locations, need to be controlled from a centralized logical unit. This paper proposes a new controlling unit between the mobile transport network and the cloud infrastructure, called Mobile Edge Computing Manager, which reuse the concept of the Black Rider, which is context- and policy-based itself. This centralized processing unit bundled informations from the mobile transport network as well as from the cloud-infrastructure. The paper provides a first architectural overview.
