Technology focus areas

Edge Application Developer Project Group focuses on the following areas:

  • Enabling telecom operators to discover, inventory and make available infrastructure assets (including but not limited to compute infrastructure, network APIs for identity, location etc) to be consumed by 3rd party application developers
  • Developing capabilities, APIs and SDKs to allow application developers to easily consume cellular APIs to develop and deploy, test and trial applications which are deployed at the network edge
  • Providing a testing and validation environment which makes use of facilities such as the TIP Community Labs to test such applications within a “host” network provided by a sponsoring telecom operator

Getting involved
