An edge-cloud architecture - China Unicom case study

China Unicom, a world leading telco, has deployed one of the first edge-cloud solution in Tianjin (China). Its edge-cloud infrastructure with low-latency and high performance network is a proven architecture for telco’s 5G network transformation. In this solution, China Unicom demonstrated a full-stack integrated architecture from data center infrastructure, resource management, orchestration to edge applications. These includes VR interactive video, broadcasting, Edge CDN, AI-based security monitoring, and MEC-based (Multi-Access Edge Computing) multi-angle live video and broadcaster interaction service with Mercedes-Benz.

 In this session, we will share our experience in edge-cloud deployment. We will present the OpenStack-based edge-cloud architecture, its hardware configuration, applications and the MEC design. We will also discuss the gaps of OpenStack for edge use cases and the needs for hardware accelerator devices (e.g. FPGA, GPU) as well as NFV requirements.
