The State of Edge Computing for IoT

Session Abstract:

Edge computing is becoming a key architectural component for industrial IoT deployments. Gartner Group identifies edge computing as one of their top Tech Trends for 2019. The opportunity to process data at the edge of the network, closer to the sensors and actuators, before data is sent to the cloud results in improved security, more efficient data movement, and better performance for industrial IoT use cases.

This presentation will explore three aspects of edge computing:
– The benefits of edge computing for industrial IoT use cases
– The key features delivered in edge computing solutions
– A survey of different edge computing options available to customers.
