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 foredge 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.
Join us for this webinar that provides an overview of the LF Edge organization and the new LF Edge taxonomy that is detailed in a whitepaper that will be released later this month. The community’s goal in creating this taxonomy is to clear 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.
Attendees will learn:
1. Key concepts of edge computing within the context of the LF Edge taxonomy
2. Use cases in telecom, industrial, enterprise and consumer markets
3. An overview of how LF Edge projects work together
4. How to get involved in LF Edge or any of the edge projects
