Abstract

Edge computing is an emerging technology, which offers manifold performance improvements for applications with low-latency and high-bandwidth requirements. In order to lower the burden for the Network Service Provider to support edge computing, we introduce a generic and platform-agnostic open source edge computing framework implementation called Open Carrier Interface. The implemented prototype provides Application Service Providers with the opportunity to deploy software components directly at the edge of the network and without any operator intervention. We will elaborate and demonstrate that the developed framework and its interfaces (i) are easy to use for all involved parties, (ii) present a unifying abstraction layer for edge-based resource management systems and edge service architectures, (iii) and can deliver a significant performance impact on applications implementing the edge service paradigm.
