Edge computing is a decentralized alternative to cloud computing that uses a number of smart devices around the “edge” of a network to store data. With the rise of 5G and the Internet of Things (IoT), edge computing is expected to provide numerous benefits to organizations. Such benefits include shorter latencies, improved security, more affordable […]

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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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.

The Internet of Things (IoT) is ever expanding, with billions of touchpoints constantly requiring attention. Eventually, only cost-effective edge infrastructure will be able to keep up with IoT data processing. The local analytics of edge computing mean faster response times, reduced storage costs, and optimum use of bandwidth, while also supporting data privacy and compliance […]
The Internet of Things (IoT), is a vast and growing universe of connected products ranging from fitness trackers and smart TVs to self-driving cars and virtual assistants. It has the potential to disrupt a wide variety of industries. Consumer products are expected to be the largest vertical in terms of IoT spending by 2020. Others […]
The IEEE eLearning Library is an excellent resource for continuing professional education, offering hundreds of hours of courses designed to keep engineers up-to-date on emerging technologies and trends. eLearning has proved to be 25-60% more effective than traditional face-to-face learning. Not only is eLearning more effective, but it also saves more than half the […]
With the growth of the Internet of Things (IoT), artificial intelligence (AI) is already part of our daily lives. It’s a key component of our smartphones, our GPS systems, our personal digital assistants and more. Future growth depends on reducing latency and increasing bandwidth and privacy. That’s where edge computing comes in. Coming to the […]
