Customer expectations have shifted toward seamless and fast content delivery anywhere, anytime, and content streaming providers are scrambling to accommodate new levels of demand, pushing IT teams to establish data delivery methods that enable ultra-low latency and always-on connectivity.
Driven largely by the growing adoption rates of IoT applications, edge computing is becoming critical to efficient data processing and latency-sensitive application function.
5G endeavors to have the capacity to handle the volume of data transport that will support emerging technologies like artificial intelligence and machine learning. Enterprises can prepare by leveraging edge computing to deliver significantly lower latency.
It’s no secret that video is growing in popularity across industries. Its success in the marketing industry, the entertainment space, and as a communication channel has heightened its importance in our day-to-day lives.
Edge computing – the enabling of data storage and processing as close to the end user as possible – although not as well-known as the ubiquitous cloud, is perhaps today’s most important emerging enterprise technology.
