On June 14, 2018, the Edge Computing Consortium (ECC) held the working session of the Experiment Platform Group and Requirement and System Group in Beijing. Those in attendance included all the group members, along with the representatives from the board members and organizations participating in the ECC test bed.
Attendees are actively engaged in the working session
At this session, the Experiment Platform Group reviewed the progress of 21 test bed solutions collected by the ECC in 2017. In particular, this group focused on seven typical test bed projects: Adaptive modular manufacturing verification platform for customization; smart security monitoring; smart collaborative robot; Time Sensitive Network (TSN) + OPC Unified Architecture (UA); edge computing controller for industrial robots; smart agriculture; and production equipment interconnection. The session also detailed the six test bed projects declared in 2018 in terms of their industry value, system solution, technical highlights, and development plan. These test bed projects are relevant to sectors such as industrial Internet information security, industrial edge cloud, equipment monitoring, and industrial data collection. In addition, the attendees discussed the 2018 work plan of the Experiment Platform Group, and clarified the key tasks and objectives of the team in terms of test bed project collection, technical innovation, market promotion, and industry marketing.
The Requirement and System Group outlined how to compile the Edge Computing Reference Architecture 3.0, which will be one of the key tasks of the ECC in 2018. Participants made many constructive suggestions on the objectives, key directions, corresponding requirements, and division of work regarding the Edge Computing Reference Architecture 3.0. It was noted that the compilation of the Edge Computing Reference Architecture 3.0 should clarify the definition scope of edge computing and related concepts according to systematic methodologies, strengthen the close collaboration with the industrial Internet, and be implemented gradually by focusing on key industries. The conclusions made at this session pave the way for the Edge Computing Reference Architecture 3.0.
Fan Lingqiang, an expert from the Requirement and System Group, shared the vision and application scenarios of Huawei's innovative edge computing platform—EC-DevCloud—with experts and leaders from various vendors. In the future, the platform will provide strong support for efficient industrial cooperation and rapid business implementation of edge computing. Fan Lingqiang's comments sparked heated discussion among vendors such as SoftStone and Honeywell.
