MobileEdgeX is not yet part of LFE.  It may that you might be referring to EdgeXFoundry.  MobileEdgX and EdgeXFoundry are two different projects addressing two different scenarios.

This needs to be corrected ASAP since they are both spotlighted as LF Edge projects > "MobileEdgeX and LFE EVE projects (These two are not yet open sourced)."

Hi Bharath,

This work is going on in ONAP (OOF project and Edge automation project).

Other possible projects are  MobileEdgeX and LFE EVE projects (These two are not yet open sourced).

ONAP OOF project intention is to figure out the best edge location for a given workload based on following criteria:

-        Latency/Distance with respect to UEs.

-        Availability of right hardware capabilities required for the workload.

-        Cost

-        Affinity and Anti-affinity rules

-        Etc…

Once ONAP OOF chooses the edge location to  place the workload, then ONAP (via Multi-Cloud project) will place the workload by calling Openstack API or K8S API etc…

You may want to check out ONAP project.

Hi ,

Disclaimer: I am not sure the question following is in the scope of this forum.

I am trying to understand the Edge Architecture from UE point of view. How an app in UE can detect what the nearest edge it has to contact and how does it know whether the app is provisioned in that edge or not?

Can you please share some pointers from this perspective?

Best Regards
