Volver a Blog Cloud IOT The new future is here. How does edge computing work? 17 June, 2019 Internet’s world is becoming congested, between 2020 and 2021 there will be more than 30,000 million connected devices. This is a prediction that turns on the alarms about the efficiency of the data management obtained from these devices. To solve this problem, a new paradigm has arrived that is considered as the future of connectivity. The Edge computing is already among us. But do you know what it is about? How does it work? In this post, we will try to explain a bit about the technology of the future and why it is so important for the Internet of things. What is Edge computing? The millions of devices that are connected in the world collect information. This information is stored in the cloud, where it is processed. But what happens if this information is processed in a center at a great distance from where they were created? These large routes that perform the data make it lose efficiency and effectiveness. So, what does Edge computing have to do with this? The technology of the future is here. This technology allows data to be processed in places close to where they were created. Thus, long journeys that end in delays and unnecessary processing are avoided. The large increase in devices connected to the Internet of Things could make the cloud collapse and Edge Computing is the solution. How does Edge Computing work and why is it so important? Instead of using large data storage centers in the cloud, peripheral centers are created where the information of the devices connected to the Internet of Things will arrive. This reduces latency and improves network performance. This optimization suggests that the EC is the future, reducing server failures and improving connectivity. This technology is very important for the correct functioning of devices that need to send and receive information in real time. Augmented Reality is one of the technologies that benefit, as well as smart cars. Well, by reducing the latency, its operation is optimal, and users can receive the expected results. We live in an increasingly connected world; we consume more and more data and we look for immediate solutions. Speed and adaptability to change produce a constant development of technologies that facilitate processes. The next time your smart devices send and receive data with greater speed and the response time is the expected, you will know that it is thanks to Edge Computing, the technology of the future.
