What is edge computing?

by | Oct 13, 2021

By putting processing and data storage closer to the point of use, edge computing decreases bandwidth use and improves response time. Depending on the context, edge computing can refer to the network’s edge, the cloud’s edge, or the edge device. 

For example, edge computing might refer to processing done on-device by a smartphone or IoT device or processing done on the edge cloud or near a base station by a cellular network operator.
