LF Edge announces the second release of its Akraino Edge Stack, a framework to address 5G, IoT, AI and a range of edge use cases.
Reading the article gives a future look at how the new release of LF Edge Akraino Edge Stack will enhance the edge stacks delivered in R1 for cross-disciplinary use cases as well as new edge stacks to support connected vehicles, AR/VR, NFV, telco access, and integration with software-defined networking (SDN). This also means that connected vehicle, which establishes an open-source mobile edge compute (MEC) platform for use cases such as accuracy of location, better navigation with real-time traffic updates, and traffic alerts.
The impact of the release also shows signs of positive growth in the educational sector with the blueprint building out the AR/VR infrastructure and includes a virtual classroom application for online education. It promises more features that include an integrated cloud-native NFV application stack (ICN) that will address the challenge of edge deployments in a single deployment model that supports zero-touch provisioning in multi-edge, multi-cloud and multi-party orchestration.
Some of the major highlights of the release include focusing on AR/VR applications running at the edge, allowing operators to use Tungsten Fabric as a deployment tool and control infrastructure, and providing the edge platform to run SEBA in a fully integrated way for production deployments.
