Accelerating to the Future of the Edge - Ian Wells, Cisco
Edge computing has been rightly listed as a rising area of interest in the computing industry. The idea of "Edge Computing" has been constantly evolving over the past few years. At the same time, open source communities have begun to define projects supporting edge computing. The entire ecosystem is rapidly evolving, at the same time as it's being built.

In this talk, I'll want to take a step back and present a vision for what "Edge Computing" will look like in the next 5 years. The evolution of compute units from mainframes to bare metal to virtual machines to containers to functions has proven that the industry is moving faster than ever. I will present how this rapid evolution will change "Edge Computing" in the future, and how open source can help to drive this evolution.

Blockchain Enabled IoT Edge Computing - Pankaj Mendki, Talentica Software
The volume of data collected by IoT sensors is very high and requires considerable resources for data processing. Edge processing enables getting the data processed closer to the source. It’s not always possible or economical to set up resource intense infrastructure at the edge.

This presentation proposes using a blockchain-based decentralized application to facilitate IoT edge processing. The resource owner can join the ecosystem and lend out the compute resources for edge computation. This concept is explained considering the use-case of video analytics at IoT edge. Surveillance cameras generate huge data that can be processed at edge to create a searchable indexed repository of the video content.

The presentation will explain the overall solution architecture and the different components involved. It will also cover a set of challenges and possible solution to overcome those challenges.

Your Path to Edge Computing - Akraino Edge Stack Update - Kandan Kathirvel, AT&T & Tina Tsou, Arm
The Akraino community was proud to announce the availability of its release 1 on June 6th. The community has experienced extremely rapid growth over the past year, in terms of both membership and community activity.

Before Akraino, developers had to download multiple open source software packages and integrate/test on deployable hardware, which prolonged innovation and increased cost. The Akraino community came up with a brilliant way to solve this integration challenge with the Blueprint model.

An Akraino Blueprint is not just a diagram; it’s real code that brings everything together so users can download and deploy the edge stack in their own environment to address a specific edge use case.

Learn more about the Akraino Edge Stack. In this talk, we will share details about

1. R1 blueprints and its use
2. R2 goals
3. How to engage and contribute to the Akraino Community

Project EVE - Enterprise/On-prem Edge Virtualization - Erik Nordmark, Zededa
“Edge computing” is getting lots of attention these days -- with different definitions of what the edge is. This talk approaches enterprise edge computing, and introduces a new open source project within the LF Edge Foundation: Project Eve.

The enterprise edge is different from traditional data center environments:
- Physical distribution and resulting physical and network security
- Service lifetime of 7 or more years
- Security requirements for cyber-physical systems
Yet system designers want to follow cloud native and devops approaches for deploying apps at the edge. This is why we created the Edge Virtualization Engine, or Project EVE.

This talk covers:
- Requirements of the enterprise edge environment
- Overview of Project EVE
- Zero Trust
- Zero Touch for the enterprise edge
- Providing freedom of any app, any network (technology), and any hardware.

Android at the Edge - Melissa Evers-Hood, Intel Corporation
As cloud architectures continues to gain prominence, it is extending from cloud all the way to the device edge. There are many benefits to device and edge in cloud software infrastructure, but there are also differentiated challenges- a UI for example! The prevalence of this migration to device with cloud software is seen across LF Edge projects. Many folks are looking to bring the exceptionally popular device operating system, Android, to these cloud architectures in either VM or Containerized implementations. This drive for workload consolidation and convergence presents enormous opportunities ( >2M app ecosystem, robust tooling, Google services) as well as challenges (certification, performance tuning, security). We will review LF Edge projects and pathfinding development done with AOSP and show demos of Android in a variety of scenarios.

Addressing IoT Protocol Soup – Leveraging a Highly Interoperable, Flexible and Open Source Edge Platform - Jason Shepherd, Dell Technologies
Today’s IoT/edge landscape often requires developers to connect a variety of sensors and devices speaking dozens of protocols into an IoT platform. The IoT platforms, after ingesting data from the sensors and devices, must prepare the data for a variety of applications, cloud systems, and analytic engines. Developers must negotiate a diversity of endpoint protocols, data formats, and special data needs. Thus, IoT platforms today and for the foreseeable future are dual transformation engines – converting OT data into IT data and then arranging it for enterprise systems and applications. In this session, learn how EdgeX Foundry – an open source, edge platform backed by more than 70 companies – provides a scalable and flexible platform that addresses the dual transformation needs of the edge.

Aggregating Mobile Operator Edge Compute Infrastructure with End to End Network Slicing - Sukhdev Kapur, Juniper Networks & Rolf Muralt, MobiledgeX
We believe that edge is the missing piece in a new value chain that expands the types of devices on mobile networks, secures IOT, enables next generation content (AR/MR), readies mobile infrastructure for large scale handling of video ingress along with computer vision and machine learning services and is needed for autonomous devices.

MobiledgeX and Juniper will present a blueprint that is the outcome of their collaboration in aggregating highly distributed operator infrastructure on a global scale and deliver normalized, abstracted interfaces to application developers and device makers. To achieve service level objectives the application desires, such as low latency in mobile gaming or guaranteed throughput in CDN, MobiledgeX’s edge framework communicate with Tungsten Fabric orchestrated network slicing to provision virtual networks end to end. All of this is open sourced software.

Provisioning IoT Devices - Cagdas Doner, AirTies Wireless Networks
IoT devices need to get configured for Internet access. As they are constrained devices with lack of input peripherals, they require a configurator smartphone for data exchange. The exchanged data might be Wi-Fi SSID and password like credentials. There are several methods to accomplish this task but due to user interaction, must be finalized with an elegant experience.

In this representation, most popular device provisioning methods will be covered. You will learn about vendor based implementations and their infrastructures like 802.11 AP, monitor and promiscuous mode. Not only 802.11 but also other provisioning mediums like sound and light will be highlighted.
Cagdas's experimental visible light communication based method will be also represented and you will have a tiny demo at the end of the session.

Lightning Talk: Using Edge to Reduce Latency Between End Users and Cloud - Nathaniel Moore, StackPath
Cloud datacenters are located where power and cooling are inexpensive. These are far away from population centers, where end users actually live. Since higher latency means lower bandwidth, performance from the Cloud can suffer. Edge Computing sits inbetween the two, terminating end user connections locally, and allowing for buffering and additional computing logic to be executed as close to the end user as possible, while still communicating changes with Cloud-based systems. This kind of asynchronous capability means that applications can accelerate delivery to the end user while still forwarding needed updates and other state information to the Cloud.

Multi-Access, Multi-Edge Access with Akraino - Tapio Tallgren, Nokia & Ferenc Szekely, SUSE
The ETSI Multi-Access Edge Computing (MEC) started with the idea that a base station can host a server. The benefits of being close are low latency -- critical for AR/VR applications -- and processing information close to the producer so that all does not need to be transmitted.

The Akraino MEC API Framework project creates tools that translate the ETSI APIs to programming language interfaces, and provides a repository where applications can find available APIs. The Akraino uMEC project is an ultra-small MEC platform that can be deployed in a lightpole in a Smart City, along a Smart Highway, or in a liftfork in a Smart Factory.

We tested the uMEC concept in a hackathon in Finland, with the task to create new applications for smart city denizens. We are planning to create a demo platform next that would allow the participants to create applications that will use real MEC APIs.

Panel Discussion: Harnessing the Kubernetes (K8s) Ecosystem for Edge Automation & Computing - Ramki Krishnan, VMware; Davide Cherubini, Vodafone; Mike Elliott, Amdocs; Srinivasa Rao Addepalli, Intel Corporation; Catherine Lefevre, AT&T
Edge computing industry is increasingly using cloud technologies for seamless migration of workloads across edges and clouds. For seamless mobility workloads, K8s is a key requirement for all CSPs. Also, K8s is being thought to be good infrastructure orchestrator for all deployment types (VMs, containers and functions). As an example, collection/learning/inference components of a typical analytics app are distributed across edges and clouds. Many applications, including ONAP distributed analytics work assumes that the edges and clouds are K8s enabled.

This panel discusses existing work and novel ways of realizing a consistent app lifecycle management across distributed clouds using the extensibility of K8s ecosystem. This work is currently happening in ONAP as part of the Edge Automation effort and we see this impactful to other open source efforts such as Akraino, K8s Edge WG etc.

Akraino provides the basic edge cluster and Edgex could provide the camera capability. We integrate with these two open-source projects and do a use case about the policeman's camera under 5G environment.

Here is the story: when a policeman is walking in the street, there will be a small camera which hangs on his breast pocket. It could record the video and send the stream into the edge server, then we do face recognition in the edge server. At the last, policeman's cellphone will get to know when suspect shows up.

In this presentation, I will share how we integrate Akraino and edgex. In the edge cloud, we deploy china mobile edge computing platform to do AI analysis. This platform is based on Kubernetes, it provides GPU and AI capability to fulfill this use case's requirement.

Through this use case, we can confirm that Akraino and EdgeX can be integrated with each other and work properly.
