The 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) unites [Seven] telecommunications standard development organizations (ARIB, ATIS, CCSA, ETSI, TSDSI, TTA, TTC), known as “Organizational Partners” and provides their members with a stable environment to produce the Reports and Specifications that define 3GPP technologies.
The project covers cellular telecommunications network technologies, including radio access, the core transport network, and service capabilities – including work on codecs, security, quality of service – and thus provides complete system specifications. The specifications also provide hooks for non-radio access to the core network, and for interworking with Wi-Fi networks.
3GPP specifications and studies are contribution-driven, by member companies, in Working Groups and at the Technical Specification Group level.

The Eclipse Foundation provides our global community of individuals and organizations with a mature, scalable, and business-friendly environment for open source software collaboration and innovation. The Foundation is home to the Eclipse IDE, Jakarta EE, and over 350 open source projects, including runtimes, tools, and frameworks for a wide range of technology domains such as the Internet of Things, edge computing, automotive, geospatial, systems engineering, and many others.
The Eclipse Foundation is a 501(c)(6) not-for-profit organization supported by over 275 members who value the Foundation’s unique Working Group governance model, open innovation processes, and community-building events. Our members include industry leaders who have embraced open source as a key enabler for business strategy.
The Edge Computing Association has been established because the cloud is changing. The central cloud that we all know will always be there – but with deep learning and AI, not to mention storage and back up – processing will be much more focused.
The Edge Computing Association is a resource and, we hope, a movement to help us all better understand the edge and maximize its potential. We look forward to gathering opinions, providing education and learning and building an active community that thinks at the edge of the network and engages the edge crowd to listen up and be heard.
ETSI provides members with an open, inclusive and collaborative environment. This environment supports the timely development, ratification and testing of globally applicable standards for ICT-enabled systems, applications and services.
We are at the forefront of emerging technologies across all sectors of industry and society that make use of ICT. Our 900+ member organizations are drawn from over 60 countries and five continents.World map
We operate on a not-for-profit basis and are one of only three bodies officially recognized by the EU as a European Standards Organization. We are the recognized regional standards body dealing with telecommunications, broadcasting and other electronic communications networks and services.
We have a special role in Europe. This includes supporting European regulations and legislation through the creation of Harmonised European Standards. Only standards developed by the three ESOs (CEN, CENELEC and ETSI) are recognized as European Standards (ENs).
We were initially founded to serve European needs, but we have a global perspective. Our standards are now used the world over.
We collaborate and work in partnership with different types of organizations around the world. This makes us well placed to support our members who operate in an increasingly international and competitive environment.
An alliance of industry-leading companies collaborating to make designing, deploying and operating edge computing easy
LF Edge is an umbrella organization that aims to establish an open, interoperable framework for edge computing independent of hardware, silicon, cloud, or operating system. By bringing together industry leaders, LF Edge will create a common framework for hardware and software standards and best practices critical to sustaining current and future generations of IoT and edge devices.
We are fostering collaboration and innovation across the multiple industries including industrial manufacturing, cities and government, energy, transportation, retail, home and building automation, automotive, logistics and health care — all of which stand to be transformed by edge computing.
The State of Edge (http://stateoftheedge.com) is a member-supported research organization that produces free reports on edge computing and was the original creator of the Open Glossary of Edge Computing, which was donated to The Linux Foundation. Version 2.0 of the Open Glossary of Edge Computing is being incorporated into the 2019 report. The State of the Edge welcomes additional participants, contributors and supporters. If you have an interest in participating in upcoming reports or submitting a guest post to the State of the Edge Blog, feel free to reach out by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
