Programming Platform for Intelligent Collaborative Deployments over Heterogeneous Edge-IoT Environments
INCODE envisions the design and development of an open platform for the deployment and dynamic management of end user applications, over distributed, heterogeneous and trusted IoT-Edge node infrastructures, with enhanced programmability features and tools at both the network infrastructure level and the service design and operational level. The platform is implemented following three innovative design approaches: i) The deployment and management of the applications is conducted by an orchestration framework that follows a vertical layered approach from the end user interface to the infrastructure management while spanning horizontally across the device-edge-core-cloud continuum. The deployment follows the user-defined networking and operational features of the application in its
northbound interface and a tight integration with state-of-the-art IoT, edge/cloud computing, and networking platforms in its southbound interface through a well-define driver API framework.
