The industry can avoid fragmentation by making sure that differentiation is done on services, not on how they are consumed or exposed. In the first step, ‘Activate network capabilities’, standard network capabilities are activated and exposed. HCPs, such as AWS, Microsoft Azure, Google and AliCloud have the core business to provide cloud infrastructure and platforms. This white paper discusses how to choose the right edge computer for your industrial AIoT application and provides several case studies to help you get started. Edge Computing sicuro L’Edge Computing abilita l’elaborazione del dato esattamente nel punto in cui esso è stato generato, alla periferia (Edge) della rete, ad esempio su un determinato macchinario all’interno di un impianto di produzione. This orchestration layer will provide a harmonized single orchestration and management functionality over the different orchestration functions that will be present. The technical APIs are defined by standards from 3GPP and TMF for example. White Paper of Edge Computing Consortium Today’s transformation of industries using the Internet of Things (IoT) and other sensor technologies can gain great benefits through the use of versatile edge computing. Local champions and mid-market ambitious: Leading CSPs in small/mid-size markets and mid-size in large markets, with high ambitions to grow their enterprise business beyond connectivity. He started to work with cloud products and NFV in 2014 responsible for several market launches. Un’architettura di Edge Computing è, di fatto (la definizione la dà IDC), un’architettura distribuita di micro data center, ciascuno in grado di immagazzinare ed elaborare i dati a livello locale e trasmettere questi dati a un data center centralizzato o a un repository di storage in cloud.. Henrik holds a MSc. SI companies can be both global and local and are likely to be present in most solution implementations in one way or another. In addition, they have different capabilities to scale and address a larger market. Local champions and mid-market ambitious should invest in enterprise GTM to avoid commoditization focusing on a couple of verticals where they are the most competitive in. Overcoming this challenge will require the adoption of go-to-market (GTM) strategies that allow selling edge solutions that meet the different use-case requirements in various industry verticals. Edge computing is being specified across standards and open source fora, for example 3GPP which has accelerated its activities towards edge, ETSI, CNCF (Cloud Native Computing Foundation), ONAP (Open Network Automation Platform) and LF Edge. Deploying and operating IT at the edge of the network, how-ever, comes with unique challenges. The means of integration to application development environments will be done based on an SDK and a set of APIs. æÛ šmLJ=bÿ` …¿š Edge computing - and, when required, High Performance Edge Computing - is the new domain for innovation. There should be a central orchestration and management functionality that is aware of the network topology and what resources are available where in the distributed cloud infrastructure. This also requires descending the services to the network edge, so as to reduce the network latency caused by network transmission and multi-stage service forwarding. L’implementazione e il funzionamento dei sistemi IT periferici, tuttavia, presentano delle sfide che è necessario superare. In the second step, ‘Compose capabilities to create service API’, edge use cases are supported by the composition of technical APIs (network and management) enabling the creation of service APIs tailored around specific use cases. CSPs should choose the one that suits their enterprise strategy best, and should be prepared to build strength by partnering with HCPs, SI companies or OT vendors, while keeping a strong GTM towards enterprises. Could be separate or the same infrastructure used for telco workloads. The innovation rate in this part of the application ecosystem will be significant going forward. China Unicom Edge Computing Technology White Paper is expected (the end-to-end transmission latency and service processing latency of the LTE network are currently above 50ms). They should not have to understand network topology, legacy protocols and APIs. And secondly, on execution time by addressing the discovery of the services exposed but also the monetization of the APIs in step three. An execution environment should be able to host applications and harmonize the requirements of the development communities. Just in the open source area there are at least 20 initiatives ongoing across different communities as this paper is being written. With the introduction of 5G and edge computing, they are now in a better position to provide new offerings both to enterprises that need to automate industrial processes and to consumers who require improved user experiences for on-line gaming. ETSI-NFV should define the required interfaces, Orchestration and management of workload services on top of a distributed cloud infrastructure is done by dynamic orchestration, embracing multi-domain orchestration. Apart from specialized SI companies, other companies can also take an SI role in a solution implementation, for example OT vendors or HCPs. In addition, there are several industry alliances aligning around their own use cases. How can CSPs leverage a global ecosystem for edge computing and collaborate with these companies while differentiating locally? They front enterprises for most of their needs, including edge infrastructure and platform, and commit to SLAs, The CSP scope is focused on connectivity and, in some cases, co-location. This computing capability can be implemented as an open platform at the network edge near “things” or data sources. Edge computing refers to the architectural principle of moving the execution of digital services and applications to the edge of the network, closer to the human user or connected device. The objectives of this paper are to introduce the concept of Mobile-edge Computing and the related key market drivers, and to discuss the business, consumer and … The edge application environment enables CSPs to host non-telco workloads and open up the network as a distributed cloud resource. The Full Edge Providers have a strong go-to-market (GTM) relationship with the enterprise or the application developer/provider. Executive summary by Schneider Electric White Papers are now part of the Schneider Electric However, these customers may not think of the traditional CSP as a natural. A good example of an exposure success story is the HCPs that have attracted application developers on a global scale through simple to use APIs. not on the APIs themselves. This white paper is authored by the founders of the Mobile-edge Computing (MEC) industry initiative. Even though the value stack looks uncomplicated, a vast number of companies participate in the ecosystem to take a role and it can therefore be challenging to navigate in it. white paper. Edge infrastructure will therefore be accessible to third party application providers and developers and will host a multitude of applications, each with specific characteristics and needs. The edge computing ecosystem is vast and is evolving rapidly. CSPs need access to the adequate domain knowledge through partners, such as SI companies, HCPs and the OT vendors, as well as increasing credibility through association with the right brands and industry experts as the other players will need the network and connectivity knowledge that CSPs provide. ... ⇒ Read the white paper So, in the third step, ‘Expose service API towards application developers’, the service- and instrumentation APIs defined in the second step shall be the foundation of the integration with HCP and OT vendor developer environments. How should the different segments address edge computing by using the deployment tracks described above? 5G and edge computing White paper Unleashing the power of real time As the world grows ever-more connected, the pace of business accelerates. There are challenges that must be addressed by that integration. Enterprises can develop applications, deploy and manage them flexibly via orchestration logic towards a landing-zone which accesses the distributed cloud infrastructure and leverages services exposed through APIs for consumption. CSPs can do this by making APIs de-facto standards or commonly adopting APIs with a common list of attributes. Edge computing: perché puntare su un ecosistema integrato. Many companies also have the capability to address more than one layer. Partnering with these companies will in many cases be necessary to reach the application ecosystem to enable use cases and play a relevant role in providing those. This means that CSPs must have an enterprise strategy to start with. A vast number of companies participate in the ecosystem, from hardware vendors, platform companies to applications developers, System Integrator (SI) companies and CSPs.
