Description The recent Edge computing paradigm is increasingly becoming an effective alternative to existing cloud computing technologies.
Edge systems have been initially designed under the supervision of the ETSI working group on Mobile Edge Computing (MEC) with a focus on mobile users. However, we observe nowadays that the interest has shifted towards other ICT domains. In particular, Edge computing has been identified as a potential key factor to achieve the performance and reliability offered by 5G and next generation networks. In this internship, the candidate will study the state-of-the-art of Edge systems, and implement one or more solutions for distributed computation and resource access. The target use case is the “augmented technician”: in this scenario, an operator uses an augmented reality device to obtain detailed information about their surroundings. Furthermore, they can perform some actions in real time by connecting to a remote tool. The internship can be an introductory step to enter a Ph.D.
The intern student will have to deploy an edge computing prototype within a real 5G private network, hosted by Telecom Paris lab. In parallel, they will have to work on distributed orchestration systems (e.g., Kubernetes) and computation units (e.g., containers) in a specific environment hosted by EDF, the largest electricity provider in France and Europe. Finally, they will have to deploy an existing augmented reality application by EDF to be transposed towards a containerized or VM-based application.
