Internet of Things
The advantages of edge computing for industrial IoT (IIoT) systems have become impossible to ignore. Adding intelligence near the sensors and actuators reduces communications bandwidth, latency, and security concerns, among other benefits.
But true edge computing means more than just increasing MIPS on embedded devices. It requires end-to-end solutions capable of bringing the performance of the data center into real-time environments.
Connecting embedded devices to the Internet introduces a host of challenges, including authorization and provisioning, remote management, endpoint security, and the many complexities of data sharing across IoT and IT environments.
These issues make edge computing inherently bound to enterprise platforms.
