24.5583GPPEnabling Edge ApplicationsProtocol specificationRelease 17TS

In order to support the edge applications over the 3GPP systems, various features are defined to ensure the efficient use and deployment of edge applications, some of which include, registration, discovery, service provisioning, capability exposure and support for service continuity.

The present document specifies the APIs in detail, needed to support the services offered by the EES over EDGE-1 interface and offered by the ECS over EDGE-4 interface for enabling the edge applications over 3GPP network.

4.1 Information applicable to APIs over EDGE-1 and EDGE-4

The APIs as specified in this document allow secure access to the capabilities provided by the EES and ECS functional entity.

The stage-2 level requirements and signalling flows are defined in 3GPP TS 23.558 [2].

The usage of HTTP, content type, URI structure definition, notifications, error handling, feature negotiation, HTTP headers and Conventions for Open API specification files, as specified in clauses 7.3, 7.4, 7.5, 7.6, 7.7, 7.8, 7.9 and 7.10 of 3GPP TS 29.558 [4] respectively, shall be applicable for the APIs in the current specification.
