Edge computing

As IoT systems proliferate, and send more and more data, this data needs to be sent to the servers where it can be processed over the network infrastructure. This means that the data consumes bandwidth on the WAN links all the way up to the data center where the processing happens. More importantly, the data being sent from the edge to the DC takes a finite amount of time to be transported. Some data is time sensitive, and hence needs to be processed and reactive action taken with minimal latency.

As an example, consider that we are measuring the temperature of a hot furnace using a temperature sensor that is connected to the network using IoT protocols. This sensor would send the temperature of the furnace periodically to ...
