        Problem Statement of IoT integrated with Edge Computing
                    draft-hong-iot-edge-computing-02

Abstract

   This document describes new challenges such as strict latency,
   constrained network bandwidth and devices, intermittent connectivity,
   privacy and security, for IoT services originated from the IoT
   environmental changes.  In order to address those new challenges, the
   integration of Edge computing and IoT has been emerged as a promising
   solution.  This document discribes the concept of IoT integrated with
   Edge computing as well as its use cases.  It also discusses benefits
   and challenges of Edge computing.  The direction of Edge computing
   for IoT should be discussed in the IETF/IRTF.
