Business driver

One of the key drivers of 5G Systems are ultra low latency and high reliability communications enabled by edge clouds. Services can be hosted close to the end users and new type pf services can be enabled by exposing contextual information to applications. In this framework the services can be enhanced with Machine Learning. Applications hosted in distributed cloud i.e. edge and central cloud, can consume services offered by service producers. Service consumers can discover the services that are available in that location via API framework. Similarly. the service producers can advertise their offerings via the same API framework. In addition to service discovery, the API framework allows authentication and authorization and can also provide communications transport to the service consumers and producers.

 

Business use cases

For Example:

      
  1. Customer Edge deployable at Customer premises such as home, enterprises, offices to support Edge services such as SD-WAN
  2.   
  3. Customer Edge deployable at Public buildings such as Stadiums, Smart cities, etc., to support edge applications for example - Video Analytics, AI/ML based detection, etc.,
  4.   
  5. Edge Cloud deployable at Cell tower to support RAN related workload
  6.   
  7. Edge Cloud deployable at Central offices ranging from one rack to multiple racksAn application in an enterprise network providing services using contextual information based on the location and Wifi network information
  8. In a private network in a factory, an application collects IoT sensor information and makes it available to machine learning functions
  9. An application in an edge cloud using radio network information and V2X control path information from a mobile network offers safety information to vehicles on the road

 

Business Cost - Initial Build

For Example:

      
  1. Edge Cloud deployable at Central offices with single rack should be less than 150K $
Depending on the deployment

 

Business Cost - Operational

For Example:

      
  1. Edge Cloud deployable at Central offices with single rack should be less than 100K $ as operating cost per year.
  2.   
  3. In-place upgrade of the Edge cloud should be supported without impacting the availability of the edge applications

 

Operational need

For Example:

Edge Solution should have role based access controls, Single Pane of Glass control, administrative and User Based GUIs to manage all network cloud family based blueprints.

The automation should also support zero touch provisioning and management tools to keep operational cost lower

N/A

 

Operational need

Orchestration framework (such as ONAP) needs to enable applications in a distributed cloud discovering their local service registry for service discovery

 

Security need

For Example:

The solution should have support granular access control and should support periodic scanningsecure communications between service producer and service consumer


 

Regulations

For Example:

The Edge cloud solution should meet all the industry regulations of   data privacy, telco standards (NEBS), etc.,

 

Other restrictions

Consider the power restrictions of specific location in the design (example - Customer premise)

N/A

 

Other restrictions


 

Additional details

The Edge Cloud Solution should be deployable across the globe and should be able to support more than 10,000 locations
