Body
ITU-T Study Group 13 would like to inform you that we are starting the new work
item on “Edge computing – Overview and requirements (Y.ec-reqts)”, which could
be found in attachment. The draft Recommendation Y.ec-reqts aims to provide
overview and requirements of edge computing. To provide requirements, this
Recommendation defines terms and concept of edge computing, provides reference
frameworks for edge computing based on fundamental characteristics and
capabilities. Also, this Recommendation provides requirements through various
use cases based on reference framework. We would like to receive your comments
and collaboration for the future work on this draft Recommendation, and hope
you can share with us your related work in case you have similar studies in
this area.
