Hi Mike,

It sounds an interesting use case to make the network aware of the applications data needs.

Just to clarify first, what would be the "applications data needs" to be more specific? Any idea on how to express/formulate these data needs and integrate with APN?

Best regards,

Hi Shuping,

> Some use cases in Edge Computing have been listed in the draft:<>

One of the findings, of a series of edge computing side meetings, was the need for standardized edge data discovery:

Perhaps we can include an APN use case (or separate draft) where the network is aware of the applications data needs, is able to find the data and then compute on it. Something worth investigating anyway.

Dear all,

We have been exploring the use cases that could benefit from APN.

Some use cases in Edge Computing have been listed in the draft:<>
Some use cases in Game Acceleration have been listed in the draft:<>

What do you think about these use cases? What are the benefits that can be brought by APN? Would you like to share some other use cases that are valuable to you?

Thank you!

Best regards,
