In this article, we propose to apply massive multipleinput, multiple-output (MIMO) to mobile edge computing (MEC). This application is expected to greatly facilitate the offloading in MEC by exploiting the huge gains in spectral and energy efficiencies brought by massive MIMO. Moreover, massive MIMO can support a larger number of users for simultaneous offloading, which reduces the delay for queuing and ultimately lowers the overall response time in MEC. Extensive simulation results are presented to demonstrate that employing more antennas leads to reduced system delay and ener gy consumption.
