IoT at the edge brings new opportunities to connect every "thing"—devices, products, machines and other assets—so you can increase uptime, improve response time, save bandwidth and reduce costs.
Edge computing is a distributed approach to IoT where information processing is located close to the physical location of where things and people connect to the digital world. It’s especially useful to make systems autonomous using IoT data, without relying on cloud infrastructure. Some applications call for “thin edge”, defined by an architecture where data from devices are collected and transmitted for centralized processing. Others benefit from “thick edge”, where processing is more decentralized, and occurs closer to data collection.
Learn how IoT edge computing can make the difference when you have sensors and devices in places with limited connectivity, produce too much data to send to the cloud cost-effectively, or need millisecond response times from IoT analytics.
