Edge is much more than just 5G enabling and supportive technology. It’s about enabling new applications and usage models to provide new services and benefits to clients and subscribers across the network. And it includes the traditional communications network but also the cloud and enterprise.

To help enable the transformation that the edge emergence is driving the community formed LF Edge, an umbrella project that hosts a wide range of open-sourced edge projects. These projects have collaborated over last year to enable the edge computing needs driven by privacy and latency needs of key market verticals. Fledge, EVE, Akraino plan to demo an industrial use case along with the white paper which details the reference architecture and blueprint details along with open sourced code for audience to learn and drive this community effort. This panel session will discuss contributions across key edge projects: Akraino, Baetyl, EdgeX Foundry, Fledge, Glossary, and HomeEdge. It will also talk about cross-project synergies. We will endeavor to allow time for audience questions and answers.
