The Internet of Things (IoT) is connecting our world in new and amazing ways. Using the data generated by IoT devices, we can make a smarter, safer, and more efficient world. However, IoT devices generate millions of data points – and it no longer makes sense to stream all of this data to the cloud to be stored, analyzed and processed. More intelligent computing must happen at the edge of the network, at or near the source of the data. This is called edge computing. With the power of edge computing, companies can develop products that are independent from the cloud, ensure better data safety, and respond in real time. Here we take a look at some of the IoT use cases that make use of edge computing.
