There are numerous reasons why enterprises may want to implement edge computing technology into their network architecture, from real-time AI data analysis and improved application performance to significantly reduced operating costs and planned downtime.
Fremont, CA: Global networks are undergoing a tremendous shift in which edge computing devices and the development of edge infrastructure play a crucial role. This edge revolution is intended to capitalize on the potential of IoT that the 5G rollout will unlock in the not-too-distant future. SDN, NFV, and Multi-Access Edge are developing ground-breaking technologies and solutions. Verticals in computing are building the groundwork for an agile and cost-effective network infrastructure. These technologies are intended to provide highly optimized and distributed computation and storage resources for the effective application of 5G services in the IoT paradise.
Edge computing technologies for IoT Ready Network Infrastructure:
Multi-access Edge Computing
MEC is a network design that permits the insertion of computing and storage capabilities within the radio access network (RAN). The MEC helps to increase network efficiency and content delivery to end-users. This device can adapt to the radio link’s load to improve network efficiency and reduce the requirement for long-distance backhauling.
A decentralized computer infrastructure is called fog computing, fog networking, or simply “fogging.” It extends cloud computing (data center) to the network’s edge and places data, compute, storage, and applications in the most efficient and logical location. This position occurs between the cloud and the data source and is also referred to as being “out in the fog.”
As the Internet of Things continues to drive the creation of new smart devices and IoT sensors, MarketsandMarkets predicts that the Microdata center solution market will be worth an astounding $32 billion within the next 2.5 years. It is anticipated that micro data centers will be most advantageous to small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) who lack their own data centers, while larger organizations will often have greater resources and hence not require such solutions.
