Architectural principles for enabling edge applications in 3GPP standards

August 10, 2022


The latest iterations of 3GPP standards have placed added emphasis on support for edge computing, a distributed computing framework that brings computation and data storage closer to the sources of data. Edge computing has the potential to usher in a fundamentally new era of low-latency data communications, enabling new use cases across several industries including healthcare, retail and manufacturing.

When it comes to edge application layer architecture, the 3GPP TSG SA WG6 (SA6) has initiated work aimed at defining an enabling layer to facilitate communication between the Application Clients (ACs) running on user equipment (UEs) and the Edge Application Servers (EAS) deployed on the Edge Data Network.
