The industry faces a strategic transformation from “device, PIPE and cloud” to “device, EDGE and cloud”. Four challenges of this transformation will be discussed: Scalability, Statistical computing multiplexing, multi-cloud networking and routing. A new Metro-Computing Network is proposed connecting computation to data dynamically and making edge islands just like one whole cloud with the purpose of network-level scalability and best statistical computing multiplexing. SRv6 like ServiceWire is introduced to support not only network programmability but also computing programmability. Finally, an innovative compute-aware routing is discussed to address edge-computing routing difficulty. It expands the routing domain to the computing domain, inject the computing capability into the network. Thus, the network can select the best edge-computing sites along the best route for computing tasks.
