Strategic Goals

There is an increasing number of signs that the edge computing concept is going to play a dominant role in the forthcoming technology developments, disrupting economies at a large scale. The big cloud providers promptly jumped in to get the lion’s share but edge computing is intrinsically more “democratic” than cloud computing. In fact, its distributed and localized nature can be an antibody for big trusts, if properly exploited. Synergistically employing edge computing with upcoming technologies such as 5G provides an opportunity for EU to capitalize on its local resource and infrastructure and its SME-dominated application development landscape and achieve an edge-computing-driven disruption with a local business scope.

Solutions Developed / Used

ACCORDION establishes an opportunistic approach in bringing together edge resource/infrastructures (public clouds, on-premise infrastructures, telco resources, even end-devices) in pools defined in terms of latency, that can support NextGen application requirements.
