        Problem Statement of IoT integrated with Edge Computing
                    draft-hong-iot-edge-computing-01

Abstract

   This document describes new challenges for IoT services originated
   from the changes in the IoT environment.  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
   discusses benefits and challenges of Edge computing, focusing mainly
   on IoT data.  The direction of Edge computing for IoT should be
   discussed in IETF/IRTF.
