Edge infrastructure for smarter cities

Nowadays, cities are facing the challenge of providing new services to their citizens raised from emerging solutions related to mobility, security, energy and others. Those services require cities to become more agile in detecting and respond to events. This need can be achieved by adapting to their environment in real time bringing computational capabilities closer when and where those events occur. This provides a flexible city infrastructure that can be scaled and balanced to provide the demanding low latencies, reliability and bandwidth.

The forthcoming massive usage of edge-to-cloud computing solutions in the frame of large IoT deployments in smart cities and industrial applications may deem the current approaches insufficient. The main goal in such scenarios remains the same: to ensure that the overall offered Quality of Service (QoS) fits the application needs over the edge or edge/cloud deployment. However, the expectations behind the QoS per se are ever increasing, as new applications appear on the edge.

Container-based deployments that leverage on Kubernetes [1] orchestration benefit from its major key features like automatic scaling, self-monitoring, balancing and thousands of production-ready tools and applications. On the edge, additional requirements can be addressed by Kubernetes such as network latency [2], local data processing and improved resiliency and autonomy to overcome unattended and disconnected operations [3].
