|Name of Project||Project EdgeGallery|
|Project Description (what it does, why it is valuable, origin and history)|
The EdgeGallery community focuses on the MEC platform framework of the carrier network’s edge. It builds the basic framework of MEC edge resources, applications, security and management, and de facto standards of network openness services through open-source collaboration, and implements interconnection with the public cloud. A unified MEC application ecosystem is constructed based on compatibility with heterogeneous edge infrastructures.
|Statement on alignment with Foundation Mission Statement|
Project EdgeGallery is well-aligned with LF Edge's mission to foster industry collaboration, scale the adoption of edge computing and harmonize the MEC ecosystem. It enables MEC edge resources and applications, whilst providing both security and management capabilities. It also offers interconnectivity with the public cloud. The result is the creation of a unified MEC application ecosystem, which we believe is best for carriers' heterogeneous edge infrastructure.
|High level assessment of project synergy with existing projects under LF Edge, including how the project compliments/overlaps with existing projects, and potential ways to harmonize over time. Responses may be included both here and/or in accompanying documentation.||EdgeGallery is highly complementary to existing LF Edge projects. It has connections with Akraino regarding integration BPs and API definitions. Its architecture could integrate EdgeX、Open Horizon, EVE into its MEP PaaS sub-system and already has Fledge and eKuiper integrated to support IIoT scenario. In addition, the commercial deployment of EdgeGallery could help LF Edge Projects be more widely used in Carrier's networks.|
