Akraino 5G MEC Hackathon - Terms & Conditions (for reference) - included in registration path above
LF Edge and Akraino are teaming up with ETSI MEC (Muli-access Edge Computing) for a combined hackathon focused on 5G, happening ahead of KubeCon + CloudNativeCon North America on November 18 in San Diego, CA.
Venue Host: Qualcomm
Sponsors: Arm, Broadcom, CMTI 5G ICSV, ETSI, Futurewei, MobiledgeX and Tars
The applications in some of the blueprints/solutions will run as Docker containers with support from container run-time. Running platform software as Docker containers allows to upgrade them and allows to use a common management system.
MobiledgeX will participate provide the platform to run on top the MEC platform and device for people to hack. Mobiledgex APIs and API sub committee work is focused on open source driven approach.
Micro-MEC is a low-power, low-cost server at the edge of the network that supports Smart City use cases with different sensors (including cameras), is connected to Internet and telco networks, and allows third-party developers to create ETSI MEC applications to it.
So the Micro-MEC focuses on Smart City use cases. If you had different smart sensors in a city, collecting data that is available for free, what could you make possible? That was the challenge that we gave in a developer hackathon in May. We used the Akraino Micro-MEC platform and created a model city. Different sensors collected information and made it available through a database.
For the next hackathon, we want to make it very easy for developers to create applications that run on the Micro-MEC device itself. For this, we are implementing ETSI MEC compliant interfaces and leverage the OpenFAAS serverless platform.
The Micro-MEC platform that we are developing in Akraino will have a trusted computing stack, from trusted hardware to secure networking and signed containers.
The following blueprint/solutions are for technical discussion for the potential blueprints, not attending the Hackathon for the prize.
Blueprint/Solution 2: AR/VR
Low-latency AR/VR is a compelling use case for edge compute. Experience 5G-based multi-node client-server model for AR/VR and create new use cases for the capability.
There are 3 nodes, two of them have GPU. Only the two which have process graphics algorithm workload need GPU. The other node is for handling requests.
For the workload, the workload will be 3 containers, one redis container, one cockroach DB, and one object detection container.
One node: Ubuntu 18.04 is preferred
Two nodes: Windows
Blueprint/Solution 3: 5G MEC edge stack accelerated with SmartNICs
- Demonstrate SmartNIC accelerated Edge stack
- OVN-K8s in host and OVS offloaded in SmartNIC
- Software ecosystem support for SmartNIC platform
- Kubernetes support for networking acceleration and SmartNIC
Blueprint/Solution 4: 5G IoT
- IIoT integrating Fledge:
2. 5G IoT device
3. Cyber-physical systems
Blueprint/Solution N: ...
Hosted by Qualcomm.
You provide ideas and enthusiasm.
- We provide training with our existing MEC on related technology areas
- We provide office hours so participants can conduct mini whiteboarding sessions to flesh out their ideas around our technology
- We point them to relevant code samples, tutorials, FAQs, Journeys, Videos etc.
- We provide real time support for our technology to participants
- We continue to support finalist teams with continuous tech support after the hackathon

- Impact, Viability, and Usefulness (30 points): does the solution have real, commercial and/or applicable value, for example to the retail end customer.
- Simplicity (30 points): is the solution intuitive, easily integrated into the retail space; has usability been taken into consideration.
- Work Performed on Site (5 points): how much work was done in Pre-Development versus at Hackathon; did Participants code and collaborate on Site, or was solution mostly completed prior.
- Presentation (5 points): effective, clear, convincing support of the retail use-case solution.
