Edge Computing Landscape Standards

Brussels, 20th of December 2022

The EU-funded, 2023  Project, ICT Standardisation Observatory and Support Facility in Europe,  has just published the sixth of a series of Landscape Reports on ICT standards, Landscape of Edge Computing Standards a palpable, go-to reference, providing an overview of the diverse array of global standardisation work underway in IoT and the various organisations behind it. This information will be continuously updated and evolve via the “EUOS – Observatory for ICT Standardisation” a database powered by 2023 to cover the wide-range of topics identified in the Rolling Plan for ICT Standardisation and will ultimately result in the release of a dedicated Gaps Analysis Report for each theme.

Landscape of Edge Computing Standards is the fruit of the dedicated EUOS Technical Working Group (TWG IIoT & EDGE) set-up to harness expert advice and stimulate discussion among SDOs, public bodies, academic institutions and acclaimed specialists to provide an expert overview of documents and relevant activities for the standardisation in this field. Applying the EUOS methodology and process, the TWG IoT and Edge team members who collated this report, made the collected disparate outcomes from across the global community, readable and accessible, and at the same time provided the possibility to make dynamic extensions of these collected outcomes in the future.  

Similar to IoT systems, there are several edge computing systems and edge computing applications being implemented and deployed in almost all vertical industry domains, such as Health, Industry & Manufacturing, Agriculture, Finance, Mobility, Energy, Public safety, Buildings and Cities. The goal of this report is to capture the landscape of edge computing activities and documents/ specifications published and/or under publication by SDOs, Alliances and OSS.

In line with Europe’s data legislation, green and industrial strategies, for capitalising on the emerging edge paradigm shift and next wave of innovation around the computing continuum, Europe needs to pool major investments. Focus must be on the development and deployment of the next generation edge computing components, systems and platforms that enable a speedy transition to a compute continuum with strong capacities at the edge and IoT- edge in an energy efficient and trustworthy manner.

Since its start, 2023 has launched in EUOS 12 other like-minded Technical Working Groups tackling ICT fields such as Blockchain (TWG BLOCK), Big Data Spaces and Data Interoperability (TWG BDDI), Cybersecurity (TWG Cyber), Artificial Intelligence (TWG AI), Trusted Information (TWG TRUSTI), Digital Twin (TWG Digital Twin), Iot and Edge Computing(TWG EDGE & IoT), Ontology (TWG Ontology), Big Data For Smart Cities (TWG Big Data For Smart Cities), Robotics (TWG Robotics), Digital Product Passport (TWG DPP) and Standards Education (TWG ACADEMY) where further Landscape and Gap Analysis Reports will be published as part of the series.
