Edge computing for business can increase the speed of data processing and analysis. The Internet of Things (IoT) is expected to grow significantly, predicted to reach about $1.6 trillion USD by 2025. Edge technology can help process the copious amounts of data that this surge in IoT-enabled devices will produce. Because edge computing processes data […]
While it may be too early to know exactly how 5G will benefit edge computing, the technology will have some sort of impact on consumers and businesses. The growth of edge computing and 5G are mutually dependent. In order for 5G to provide accelerated network speeds, it requires on low-latency and high interconnection that can […]
Edge computing improves the way businesses collect and analyze their data by processing information near the source as opposed to in the cloud. It provides real-time information, which allows companies to make data-driven decisions. Analyst predict that by 2024, the global edge computing market will rise to $9 billion USD. However, only 56% of networking […]
Depending on how many of the 30 billion Internet of Things (IoT) devices forecast for global deployment by 2020 rely on the cloud, managing the deluge of IoT-generated data makes proper processing seem near impossible. Traditional cloud computing has serious disadvantages, including data security threats, performance issues, and growing operational costs. Because most data saved […]
With the constant growth of connected devices, as well as persistent phone and tablet use, traditional centralized networks may soon be overwhelmed with traffic. Gartner predicts that 25 billion connected devices will generate unprecedented amounts of raw data by 2021. This problem will demand next-level responsiveness and reliability— and it’s just two years away. Edge […]
4G became available to the public in 2009-2011. After that, LTE-Advanced technology was created for a faster connection, but it’s still 4G. All four major cell carriers in the US have their own LTE Advanced service offering. However, Verizon, Sprint, and T-Mobile call it 4G. AT&T refers to its 4G service as “5GE,” which the […]
At Verizon’s newly formed 5G testbed in Houston, engineers recently performed a facial recognition test using a Multi-access Edge Compute (MEC) in the network facility with MEC platform software and using a centralized data center. They were able to successfully identify an individual twice as fast using the MEC, proving that analyzing information right at […]
5G networks, the next generation of mobile internet connectivity, are expected to officially launch across the world by 2020, offering unlimited potential to vastly improve our lives. This combination of cutting edge network technology and the very latest research will provide faster speeds and more reliable connections on smartphones and other mobile devices than ever […]
Edge computing allows smart applications and devices to respond to data almost instantaneously, as it’s being created, eliminating lag time, which is critical for technologies like self-driving cars. Learn about this transformative concept in cloud computing and how it will impact technologies far and wide from some of the leading voices in the field.
Mahadev Satyanarayanan (Satya) is an experimental computer scientist, a founding pioneer in edge computing, mobile computing, pervasive computing, and Internet of Things. He is the Carnegie Group Professor of Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University (CMU). He is an ACM and IEEE fellow. In his research career, Satya has focused on the performance, scalability, availability and trust challenges in computing systems that reach from the cloud to the mobile edge of the Internet. He has pioneered many advances in edge computing, distributed systems, mobile computing, pervasive computing, and the Internet of Things (IoT).
