Telco Edge Cloud Value & Achievements

The Telco Edge Cloud (TEC) initiative was launched in the GSMA in March 2020 by 19 operators to design and develop a global edge computing service based on the federation of the edge infrastructures and platforms from a set of operators and edge service providers. Being open and inclusive, the TEC community within the GSMA has grown to include technology and platform providers, counting 24 members at the time of writing this edition of this whitepaper and has set the basis for the global service launch. In this document, you can find a description of the basic services the Telco Edge Cloud will provide.

This whitepaper is complemented by other documents produced by the GSMA, like the ones issued by the Operator Platform Group (OPG) (see References), which describes the technical framework and requirements of the platform that will support the Telco Edge Cloud service, and the Telco Edge Cloud: Edge Service Description & Commercial Principles Whitepaper, which provides a set of commercial principles around the scope of services, stakeholder relationships and possible charging schemes.
