Applications that will ride on 5G such as IOT, Augmented reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) will bring additional use cases to host applications at the Edge and these use cases were not addressed in the traditional data center cloud deployments.

The additional use cases include thin deployments (2-3 servers), large-scale (10K plus locations), zero touch provisioning, support for GPU, etc.,

In this talk, we will share our insights of edge computing and open source edge solution.
