NEC Labs Europe (NLE) has showcased its edge computing framework FogFlow at Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2018 in Barcelona, from 26th February to 1st March.
As an open source cloud-edge orchestrator, FogFlow can help infrastructure providers like smart city operators, enterprises, and Telecom operators to fast and efficiently realize various IoT services and applications on top of their geo-distributed ICT infrastructures, including centralized clouds and heterogeneous edges like IoT Gateways or mini-datacenter deployed together with future base stations.
Currently FogFlow is available as an open source FIWARE Generic Enabler (GE) in the FIWARE community. FogFlow was developed and enhanced as part of the CPaaS.io project and it is also used in some NEC internal Proof-of-Concept (PoC) solutions.
At MWC’18, NLE demonstrated FogFlow with a set of edge computing use cases, such as finding a lost child from stadiums, enabling automatically controlled awning devices for retail shops.
The FogFlow booth has attracted visits of over 200 guests from more than 100 companies, around 36 countries.
