Some vendors have moved to use the ETSI MEC specification as an attempt to harmonize what is becoming a convoluted edge computing ecosystem. Radisys, for instance, recently released an edge software platform using those specifications.
“We will go wherever our customers need us to go and that right now is in the direction of fully open solutions,” explained Natasha Tamaskar, vice president of global marketing and sales strategy at Radisys. “Operators don’t want to guess right now on what they need to support specific applications. If the platform is open, disaggregated, and has a lot of APIs, they can build the network they want, not what someone else thinks they need.”
