        Problem Statement of IoT integrated with Edge Computing
                 draft-hong-t2trg-iot-edge-computing-00

Abstract

   This document describes new challenges such as strict latency, uplink
   cost, uninterrupted services, 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 the state-
   of-the-art of IoT Edge computing.  It also proposes an architecture
   of IoT Edge computing.  The direction of Edge computing for IoT
   should be discussed in the IETF/IRTF.
