White Paper of Edge Computing Consortium

Today’s transformation of industries using the Internet of Things (IoT) and other sensor technologies can gain great benefits through the use of versatile edge computing. This computing capability can be implemented as an open platform at the network edge near “things” or data sources. Edge computing integrates networking, computing, storage, and application capabilities and provides edge intelligent services. Benefits include agile connections, real-time services, data optimization, and smart application, as well as security and privacy protection.

Six industry entities have joined together to establish the Edge Computing Consortium (ECC) to help integrate resources in government, vendor, academic, research, and customer sectors, as well as promote innovation, the industrial application of edge computing, and advance the sustainable development of all enterprises. The entities include Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd., Shenyang Institute of Automation of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, China Academy of Information and Communications Technology (CAICT), Intel Corporation, ARM Holdings, and iSoftStone Information Technology (Group) Co., Ltd.
