Participation together with George Polyzos (AUEB, Greece), Dirk Kutscher (Huawei, Germany), and Jussi Kangasharju (University of Helsinki, Finland).

Insights about the deployment of edge computing namely about where to place the edge in wireless networks, and how to orchestrate a highly distributed multi-tenant system. Special attention was given to the deployment of distributed systems of edge nodes co-located with existing cellular transmitters, by leveraging their existing fiber optic cables or using wireless beamforming. A simple impact study was provided from a power perspective, showing that the "network edge" may account for only 1% of the total aggregated computational capacity.
