Panel Discussion: Demystifying the Edge with the New LF Edge Taxonomy and Framework - Jason Shepherd, Zededa; Vikram Siwach, MobiledgeX & Molly Wojcik, Section
Feedback form is now closed.
Edge computing represents a new paradigm in which compute and storage are located at the edge of the network, as close as both necessary and feasible to the location where data is generated and consumed, and where actions are taken in the physical world. The optimal location of these compute resources is determined by balancing the benefits of centralization and decentralization. Founded in 2019, LF Edge’s mission is to establish an open, interoperable framework for edge computing independent of hardware, silicon, cloud or operating system. With more than 75 members, LF Edge hosts eight projects building foundational enablers for edge computing in addition to providing research on this emerging market: Akraino Edge Stack, Baetyl, EdgeX Foundry, Fledge, Home Edge, Open Horizon, Project EVE and State of the Edge. Recently, LF Edge developed a white paper that outlined the a new edge taxonomy that clears up market confusion by breaking the continuum down based on inherent technical and logistical tradeoffs rather than using ambiguous terms. The taxonomy also comprehends a balance of interests spanning the cloud, telco, IT, OT, IoT, mobile and consumer markets.
