Supporting the edge-cloud continuum via a cognitive, decentralized framework
The overall aim of CODECO is to contribute to smoother and more flexible support of services across the edge-cloud continuum via the creation of a novel, cognitive edge-cloud management framework. CODECO will implement software toolkits suitable for smarter management of highly-distributed environments based on heterogeneous networks and by integrating mobile, resource-constrained devices. The CODECO components will extend the management and orchestration of edge-cloud services with cognitive cross-layer adaptability and with features that allow for intelligent decisions regarding computational offloading and network adaptation while taking into consideration application and networking requirements, data security and sensitivity, as well as other context-specific aspects related to the data flow.
CODECO aims to provide support for the next generation of smart services, focusing on dense deployments in B5G/6G services. CODECO considers multiple use cases across different vertical domains (smart cities, manufacturing, energy and smart facilities) involving mobile, far-edge devices and addresses the IoT-edge-cloud orchestration based on a cross-layer approach that envisions data, compute, and network adaptation.
The CODECO consortium, coordinated by fortiss (Rute C. Sofia), comprises a total of 16 partners within the EU, as well as Israel and Switzerland. The partners represent a variety of organizations, ranging from SMEs with a focus on open-source software and innovation management (Inova Mais, Eclipse Foundation, Almende), renowned universities (University of Gottingen, Universidad Politecnica de Madrid, University of Piraeus Research Center) and research institutes (fortiss, I2CAT, Athena), to large companies (ATOS, Telefonica, Siemens, Intracom-Telecom, RedHat, Netsoft-Intrasoft, IBM).
