Consortium publications discuss reference architectures for next-generation mobile networks and cloud that are suitable for connected vehicle services use cases. For example, AECC is addressing efficiency issues in resource utilization from the viewpoints of communication bandwidth, computational power, and storage capacity. Defining reference architectures is necessary to determine the best way to meet various requirements by appropriate parameter settings with as small an impact as possible on system architecture complexity. Resolving these issues may include, architectures for in-vehicle systems, edge computing, process/task migration, network virtualization (SDN/NFV), network interface/messaging, data center fabric and multiple-access (WiFi/Cellular, etc), relation to public cloud infrastructure, and cross-network application orchestration.
