                Impact of Mobility on Discovery in COIN
                 draft-defoy-coinrg-mobile-discovery-00

Abstract

   Service, data and resource discovery is an important aspect of
   computing in the network.  While this aspect has been studied,
   including in COINRG, this document looks more specifically at the
   influence of mobile devices on COIN discovery.  Related research
   challenges are described and discussed.

1.  Introduction

   Discovery in COIN relates to edge services including computing
   resources, computing services and data.  In this document, we focus
   on the influence of mobile devices on discovery in COIN, both when
   mobile devices are consuming or producing edge computing services.
   We use the following terms:

   *  Edge computing service: a general concept including offering
      computing and storage resources to other devices or to a platform,
      through an API that enables allocating computing/storage
      resources, onboarding a program, running a program; offering a
      computing service such as an API to a software program running on
      the device; or offering a data service such as a data stream or an
      API to access data generated by, or stored on, the device.

   *  Edge computing service provider: a device or platform providing
      such a service.  We especially consider cases where a mobile
      device acts as a provider.

   *  Edge computing service consumer: a (possibly mobile) device
      discovering, requesting and obtaining access to such a service.

   *  Network provider: an entity providing network connectivity to the
      mobile devices discussed in this draft.  It can be a 5G network
      operator, or an enterprise or home network operator.

   This document is related, and aims to be complementary, to
   [I-D.mcbride-edge-data-discovery-overview], which studies data
   discovery in COIN environments.
