Edge Computing and IoT Go Hand in Hand
The Internet of Things is coming to businesses everywhere and revolutionizing everything from manufacturing to retail. But IoT devices have a huge impact on networks and will require new network infrastructures and devices to make them effective. Enter edge computing, which IDC describes as a “mesh network of micro data centers that process or store critical data locally and push all received data to a central data center or cloud storage repository, in a footprint of less than 100 square feet.” This type of computing can breathe new life into IoT and analytics, offering all industries an opportunity to tap artificial intelligence and machine learning capabilities in real time to improve operations. What Is Edge Computing? So, what is edge computing exactly? According to Microsoft, in edge computing, compute resources are “placed closer to information-generation sources to reduce network latency and bandwidth usage generally associated with cloud computing.” This helps to ensure continuity of services and operations even if cloud connections aren’t steady.
