GSMA Operator Platform Telco Edge Requirements 2022
Operators in the 5G era have a significant opportunity to monetise the capabilities of their networks. Moreover, with the existing relationships that operators have with enterprises, their vast local footprint, their ability to support digital sovereignty principles and their competence to provide high-reliability services, the missing piece is the ability to package and expose their networks in a scalable fashion across multiple operators.
This document intends to guide the entire industry ecosystem; operators, vendors, OEMs, and service providers to define a common solution for exposing network capabilities and edge compute resources. The document provides an end-to-end definition of the Operator Platform for support in edge computing environments. The scope of this document covers requirements and architecture specifications that would guide the industry ecosystem into creating a common solution for exposing network capabilities and edge compute resources and intends to span an end-to-end view of the Operator Platform in edge computing environments. The ecosystem includes operators, vendors, OEMs, and service providers.
