This paper presents the vision of 5G-MiEdge, a research project leveraging the benefits of merging Multi-access Edge Computing (MEC) and millimeter wave (mmWave) technologies. First the three chosen key enabling technologies, i.e. mmWave edge cloud, liquid control-plane (C-plane), and application-/user-centric orchestration, are presented, then the defined use cases and application scenarios are described. Based on those and on re-using 3GPP and ETSI functional blocks, MEC and mmWave are integrated into a unique high- level network architecture. Finally, as a Proof-of- Concept, numerical results using the novel C-plane for Omotenashi services are presented to show the benefit of the proposed architecture.
