         IoT Edge Computing: Initiatives, Projects and Products
           draft-defoy-t2trg-iot-edge-computing-background-00

Abstract

   Many IoT applications have requirements that cannot be met by
   the traditional Cloud.  As a result, the IoT is driving the Internet
   toward Edge computing.  This draft reviews initiatives, projects and
   products related to IoT Edge Computing.

1.  Introduction

   This list of open-source or commercial products, standard initiatives
   and research projects aims to provide an overview of the IoT edge
   computing.

   It has been developped in support of [IOT-EDGE].  This other draft
   studies challenges and functions associated with IoT edge computing,
   and provides further background information on IoT, cloud computing
   and edge computing.

   Our goal is to be representative rather than exhaustive.  Please help
   us complete this overview by communicating with us about entries we
   have missed.
