Edge deployments, in contrast to large public clouds, pose interesting demands since they are physically insecure & capacity constrained. Also, Edge Computing Apps such as AR-VR, have low-latency characteristics with RTT typically few msec and pose further demands to edge deployments.

Edge Computing Apps like to use Service Meshes (SM) such as Istio/Envoy, Linkerd etc. to offload infrastructure related activities such as security.

In this panel, we first examine the unique challenges in using SM technologies for Edge Computing Apps - especially the additional latency and resource usage to due to Kernel Networking. Next, we will explore software techniques such as Kernel Bypass, QUIC as an alternative to TCP/IP etc. to alleviate the performance bottlenecks introduced by SM technologies including early results. Last, we will touch upon hardware acceleration techniques for the above.
