IG1226A Edge Guidelines: Business Roles & Models v1.0.0

This document captures the main technical results from several Edge-related Catalyst projects in the 2019-20 series.
It is formed of three parts: IG1226A ODA Edge Guidelines: Business Roles & Models Captures the diversity of business models that had to be supported and recommends best practice for representing roles and forming business model relationships. For Edge these models and relationships need to be incorporated into, and enforced in, the operation of Edge technologies. This introduces some management complexity not seen in traditional network technologies that focus on forwarding and routing.
IG1226B ODA Edge Guidelines – Information Model Mapping Examples:  Captures the way that TM Forum Open Digital Architecture (ODA), based on Information Framework and Open APIs, can manage Edge technologies with specific mapping examples based on ETSI Multi-access Edge Cloud (MEC).
IG1226C ODA Edge Guidelines: Use Cases: This captures generalized examples of Edge Management which is used as the basis for developing the Information Model examples.
