Open and Neutral Edge Computing Architecture on Heterogeneous Devices - Gavin Lu, VMware*
This presentation is about why and how to build an open and neutral architecture for edge computing on heterogeneous devices.

In the era of IoT and edge computing, the global industry becomes more and more fragmented with hundreds and thousands of technical stacks. It's quite painful for customers and users to struggle how to select proper one among them and how to ensure reasonable TCO for 10+ years' usage in production, without lock-in and prime fee for certain vendors.

With open source software and open standard APIs, it is possible to build and maintain an open and neutral architecture on heterogeneous edge devices. Similar to IT infrastructure in data centers and clouds, edge device architecture could be put into infrastructure, app framework, software service layers, bottom up. Virtualization, Linux, containers, EdgeX Foundry, marketplaces, all are leveraged to build this layered open and neutral architecture for extensible edge computing. A set of OSS projects are built as the reference implementation.

Accelerating Control Plane for Edge - Hongjun Ni, Intel
Management for Edge Networking requires low resource (CPU cores and memory) and fast configuration.
Sweetcomb is a new open source project to configure and telemetry Appliances, VNFs and CNFs to meet above needs.
It can be leveraged in Edge and Cloud to accelerate control plane, such as uCPE, SD-WAN, 5G, IoT, etc.
There are 12 industry founders, including Intel, Cisco, Huawei, Tencent, Alibaba, China Mobile etc.

This paper will introduce Sweetcomb project and contains key elements:
1) Software Architecture to provide a common framework with extensive plugins.
2) Provides gRPC, NETCONF and RESTCONF northbound interfaces to integrate with ONAP, K8s, ODL and ONOS.
3) Supports High Availability and real-time streaming telemetry in Containers.
4) Supports IETF Yang models for Telecom and OpenConfig Yang models for Cloud.
5) Supports different Data Planes based on VPP, DPDK, Linux Kernel and OVS.
6) Deployement in a real SD-WAN use case and lessons learned.

Network Orchestration Using Blockchain - Vinay Chaudhary, NIC
Edge computing provides high scalability, fast computing to sensor nodes (IoT, WSNs and CPS) and reduces latency in term of response which is difficult in cloud computing.Orchestration provides monitoring, provisioning, business automation, security, deploy development environment in few minutes through single self-service interface. Use of Network Orchestrators between multiple edge node domains and multiple network entities have lack of trust due to centralized behavior of orchestrators, while providing services and requesting information among these entities we need transparency and trust between different entities, this problem can be solved through blockchain.
Vinay will talk about the use of Network orchestrators in edge computing (MEC) with Hyperledger Blockchain and how to provide the trust, configuration manipulation prevention, identity and access management between multiple edge clouds and multiple telecom industry based on Network Orchestration.
