This paper presents the vision of 5G-MiEdge, a research project leveraging the benefits of merging MEC and mmWave technologies. Based on that vision, the most relevant use cases and services for the forthcoming Tokyo 2020 Olympics are proposed. The focus is on showing how integrating MEC and mmWave into the 5G network architecture can offer a much more effective system. That is achieved by means of an edge cloud and the introduction of an ultra-lean and inter-operable signaling, called 'liquid control plane', capable of providing ubiquitous allocation of computation and communication resources, in an application-/user-centric framework. Finally standards-related aspects like the 5G-MiEdge impact on the ongoing 3GPP work and the services that compose the 5G phases are discussed.
