Y. Lee. X. Liu, L.M. Contreras, “DC aware TE topology model”, draft-llc-teas-dc-aware-topo-model-03 (work in progress), July 2023 (https://www.ietf.org/archive/id/draft-llc-teas-dc-aware-topo-model-03.txt). Relation to NEMO: This draft proposes a YANG model for describing the compute resources connected to a network topology. This can be used for upper control and management systems in order to select the more convenient edge/could environments for deployment of workloads taking into consideration not only compute capabilities but also networking ones in terms of traffic engineering.

L.M. Contreras, M. Boucadair, D. Lopez, C.J. Bernardos, “An Evolution of Cooperating Layered Architecture for SDN (CLAS) for Compute and Data Awareness”, draft-contreras-coinrg-clas-evolution-01 (work in progress), July 2023 (https://www.ietf.org/archive/id/draft-contreras-coinrg-clas-evolution-01.txt). Relation to NEMO: This draft proposes an architecture for inter-related control and management capabilities for services, connectivity and compute environments, where planes for control, resources and data (focusing AI/ML) are interconnected and collaboratively interacting. One of the scenarios of applicability is the cloud-edge continuum case.

Luis M. Contreras, Paolo Lucente. “Interconnection Intents” (work in progress) (https://www.ietf.org/archive/id/draft-contreras-nmrg-interconnection-intents-04.txt). Relation to NEMO: the contribution proposes the usage of intents for expressing evolved interconnection services, i.e., not simply IP peering. For instance, need of connecting services / applications in different administrative domains, identification of resources on those domains, etc. These intents target similar high-level objectives as NEMO in regard to underlying technologies, addressing the edge-cloud continuum goals where NEMO is focused. Similar kind of intents could be used / defined in NEMO (on-going work).
