Current urban technology trends like Internet-of-Things and 5G require ultra low latency compute resource to be distributed liberally at the network edge. We characterize and advocate the need for heterogeneous edge micro-clusters; these are pragmatic, low-power, low-cost, minimal footprint units that can provide sufficient resource for typical edge compute applications in smart cities. However, to make best use of heterogeneous edge micro-clusters, we require resource management techniques…
