Edge is now always been a place where Service Intelligence was leveraged to allow Service Provider to derive value-added functions and services to differentiate themselves. In telecoms history, infrastructure-based solutions such as Frame-Relay / ATM / MPLS and more recently MEF-based Carrier Ethernet services have brought a lot of flexibility and intelligence at the Edge to build converging services platforms. In the recent market transition, where services got virtually-attached (VNFs) rather than physically-attached, the way service infrastructure were thought to become much flexible and capable of addressing changes. The need to move applications/services closer to end-users at the Edge is now a notion of utmost importance to increase the users experience, beat the jitter and latency issues, and distribute service architecture instead of centralizing it... As a result, a key goal would be to move apps/services from DC/CO towards the edge combining OpenStack & K8/Docker.
