Abstract: In this work, we present ANGELA, HTTP adaptive streaming (HAS) and Edge Computing Simulator. ANGELA was designed to test edge mechanisms that support HAS, as it offers: realistic radio layer simulation, different multimedia content configurations, access to radio and player metrics at the edge, and a wide variety of metrics to evaluate the video streaming session performance. The ANGELA architecture is flexible and can support adaptive bitrate (ABR) algorithms located at different points of the network. Moreover, we show the possibilities of Angela by evaluating different ABR algorithms.
