Edge Computing: from standard to actual infrastructure deployment and software development

Last Updated: Aug 10, 2021

Edge Computing is widely recognized as a key technology, supporting innovative services for a wide ecosystem of companies, ranging from operators, infrastructure owners, technology leaders, application and content providers, innovators, startups, etc. The aim of this white paper is to provide an overview of standards, industry groups and other initiatives around edge computing, together with some Intel guidelines, to help the reader to better understand the various challenges for a real deployment of Edge Computing. The focus is to mainly address the needs of two stakeholder categories in the MEC ecosystem: infrastructure owners (e.g., operators and cloud providers) and software developers (e.g., applications / content providers, innovators and startups). In fact, both stakeholder categories are key to the success of MEC, and their engagement depends also on the way the various challenges are addressed.
