CBR Online: Why the Linux Foundation’s New Project May Prove Transformative

By In the News

The Linux Foundation (LF) this week took a large step with the launch of LF Edge; an ambitious umbrella project dedicated to creating an interoperable open framework for edge computing. LF Edge – to be compatible with any hardware, silicon, cloud, or Operating System (OS) – has attracted more big-name sponsors than you could shake a stick at; from Arm to AT&T, via Dell, Ericsson, HPE, Huawei, IBM, Intel, Juniper Networks; Qualcomm, Red Hat, Samsung, and many more.

TelecomTV: The Edge comes home: how LFN is expanding its edge coverage

By In the News

The greatest unanswerable question in telecoms is undoubtably “where exactly is the edge?” It is becoming rather like the astro physics question “where is the edge of the universe and does it even exist?” Thankfully, telecoms networks are not (yet) infinite and there are edges aplenty – and more emerging every day. The serious questions focus on why this definition even matters and how CSPs can make best use of them for their own (and you would hope their customers) advantage.

ZDNet: Bringing open-source rhyme and reason to edge computing: LF Edge

By In the News

Edge Computing is becoming increasingly important with the rise of 5G and the Internet of Things (IoT). Unfortunately, there’s no standardization to Edge Computing. So far. The Linux Foundation, has launched LF Edge, to establish an open, interoperable framework for edge computing independent of hardware, silicon, cloud, or operating system.

Linux Magazin: LF Edge founded, Core DNA promoted

By In the News

The Linux Foundation bundles its edge computing skills. It summarizes several projects under the new umbrella project LF Edge. With Akraino Edge Stack, Edge X Foundry, and Open Glossary of Edge Computing, the organization’s former stand-alone projects are being shelved. Samsung also adds the Home Edge Project. That wants to gather real-time data from smarthome devices. Zededa Complements a Cross-Platform Standard Edge Architecture with Project Eve (Edge Virtualization Engine).

CIO Australia: Linux Foundation backs a group to boost edge networking

By In the News

A new group called LF Edge is pushing for an open unified framework that will promote plug-and-play interoperability, cloud provisioning, other streamlining to improve edge networks.

The Linux Foundation announced the foundation of a new umbrella group called LF Edge designed to help unify a fragmented edge-computing marketplace and offer a common framework for future edge projects.

Enterprise Network Computing: Linux Foundation Aims To Advance Edge Computing With LF Edge Effort

By In the News

The Linux Foundation announced the formation of the LF Edge organization on Jan. 24, in an effort to help advance the state of open source, interoperable edge computing.

The first five projects joining LF Edge include Akraino Edge Stack, EdgeX Foundry, Open Glossary of Edge Computing, Project EVE (Edge Virtualization Engine), and the Home Edge Project. While some of the LF Projects are networking-focused, the overall effort is not directly related to the Linux Foundation’s LF Networking organization.
