As the focus of an emerging industry, edge computing has broad application prospects. It covers multiple fields including Operation Technology (OT), Information Technology (IT), and Communications Technology (CT). Further, edge computing involves many industry chain roles such as network connection, data aggregation, chip design and fabrication, sensing, and applications for a variety of purposes.
To promote in-depth industry coordination, accelerate innovation, and boost the application of edge computing, six industry entities have joined together to establish the ECC: Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd., Shenyang Institute of Automation of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, China Academy of Information and Communications Technology (CAICT), Intel Corporation, ARM Holdings, and iSoftStone Information Technology (Group) Co., Ltd. The ECC is dedicated to advancing cooperation among industry resources from government, vendor, academic, research, and customer sectors, and pushing forward the sustainable development of the edge computing industry.
The ECC serves as an edge computing industry cooperative platform, which promotes open cooperation in the OT and ICT fields, nurtures the industry’s best application practices, and advances sound and sustainable development of the edge computing industry.
The ECC drives the prosperity of the edge computing industry, and deepens the industry’s digital transformation.
The ECC’s purpose is to foster industry coordination in an open and innovative way, and promote prosperity and development for all parties.
