VeChain welcomes Michigan State University as the first VeResearch partner for EdgeChain. Michigan State, the #1 supply chain management university in the United States, has produced intensive research and documentation on its continued development of Mobile Edge Computing (MEC) integration into VeChainThor. The results of this research have led to a major technological breakthrough, EdgeChain. VeResearch Michigan State EdgeChain.
“EdgeChain is being built on the VeChainThor enterprise blockchain platform. All EdgeChain services and functions will be available to any VeChain application that needs MEC interoperability, essentially creating a MEC extension library on the VeChain platform. EdgeChain is both the algorithm for deciding how to place data with different vendors and also the public ledger that provides the trusted recordset of all transactions. All aspects of EdgeChain are transparent easily auditable by anyone.”

“In this paper, we have presented the architecture and thealgorithms for mobile edge applications placement for multi-ple mobile edge computing service providers, leveraging theblockchain-based system called EdgeChain. Future work will be considering multiple service chains initiated by multipleusers, to achieve lower overall costs for the entire system.”
