The Drivers and Benefits of Edge Computing
This whitepaper examines the drivers and benefits of edge computing, as well as the three primary applications.
Internet use is trending towards bandwidth-intensive content and an increasing number of attached “things.” At the same time, mobile telecom networks and data networks are converging into a cloud computing architecture. To support needs today and tomorrow, computing power and storage is being inserted out on the network edge to lower data transport time and increase availability. This whitepaper examines the drivers of edge computing and explores the various types of edge computing available.
