Alex Reznik, Chair, ETSI MEC ISG

ETSI MEC ISG is one of many groups and projects working on aspects of network edge computing, which is understandably complex given the size and scope of the edge. The various standards bodies and open source projects are all generally tackling different components, but at some point there needs to be greater harmony and some consolidation. The original objective of the ETSI MEC members was to define the overall architecture, creating a basic set of management and service APIs. What makes ETSI MEC different is that it isn’t looking to specify the functionality and intelligence behind the APIs, rather it is focused to make sure that the key points of interoperability will be successful. Every implementation, whether commercial or open source, is able to take their own approach and differentiate themselves whilst at the same time being compliant with a standardised set of APIs via ETSI. MEC, or edge computing, also potentially represents a major use case for zero touch automation, given the remote and restricted locations of the edge.
