Use CasesAkrainoBaetylEdgeXFledgeHome EdgeProject EVE
Gateways (to Cloud, to other placements)
NFV InfrastructureX
X

Stationary during their entire usable life / Fixed placement edge constellations / Assume you always have connectivity and you don't need to store & forward.X       ✔
Stationary during active periods, but nomadic between activations (e.g., fixed access) / Not always assumed to have connectivity. Don't expect to store & forward.X
Mobile within a constrained and well-defined space (e.g., in a factory) / Expect to have intermittent connectivity and store & forward.     
Fully mobile (To include: Wearables and Connected Vehicles) / Bursts of connectivity and always store & forward.X      ✔
