In the first half of Y2018, Akraino was proposed to be the first Open-Source collaborative project exclusively for edge clouds in Linux Foundation. Akraino is a framework which integrates projects like ONAP, StarlingX and so on. ONAP project handles orchestration and life cycle management on the top layer. StarlingX project is expected to serve as the edge cloud platform which integrates several OpenStack services on the bottom layer. In the presentation, we are going to introduce the joint integration work across the work flow of edge deployment and the internal mechanism of life cycle management, and so forth. Furthermore, we are targeting on one of the use cases named virtual Customer Premises Equipment (vCPE), and try to accelerate its performance on edge through different NFV SW/HW acceleration technologies, such as Hardware Platform Awareness (HPA) support in ONAP. Also we are going to conduct integration testing inside China Mobile's ONAP integration lab.
