For the last several months, a team from Equinix and Aarna – codename Team DOMINO – has been busy developing a submission for the ETSI and LF Edge Hackathon. Participants were asked to develop an innovative edge application or solution, utilizing ETSI MEC service APIs and LF Edge Akraino Blueprints. The Hackathon ran remotely from June to September with a short-list of the best teams invited to the Hackathon “pitch-off” at the Edge Computing World Global event in Santa Clara, California Silicon Valley on October 10th-12th.
We’re happy to announce that the Team DOMINO submission “Build your Edge Application or Solution with ETSI MEC APIs and LF Edge Akraino Blueprints” has been named the Hackathon WINNER at Edge Computing World. This solution uses Akraino Public Cloud Edge Interface (PCEI) blueprint to demonstrate orchestration of federated MEC infrastructure and services, including 5G Control and User Plane Functions, MEC and Public Cloud IaaS/SaaS, across two operators/providers (a 5G operator and a MEC provider), as well as deployment and operation of end-to-end cloud native IoT application making use of 5G access and distributed both across geographic locations and across hybrid MEC (edge cloud) and Public Cloud (SaaS) infrastructure.
A big congratulations to Oleg Berzin and Vivekanandan Muthukrishnan on crafting and presenting the winning submission and congratulations as well to the other finalists. And finally, a big “thank you” to the event hosts ETSI and LF Edge.
The winning submission demonstrates orchestration of federated MEC infrastructure and
By orchestrating, bare metal servers and their software stack, 5G control plane and user plane functions, interconnection between the 5G provider and MEC provider, connectivity to a public cloud as well as the IoT application and the MEC Location API service, we show how it is possible for providers to enable sharing of their services in a MEC Federation environment.
