What is edge computing?

Edge computing is a new network functionality that offers connected compute and storage resources right next to you! Wherever you are!


What are the benefits of edge computing?

Edge computing offers:
  • a dramatic improvement of customer experience through ultra-low latency
  • a reduction of data traffic through cloud services (e.g. big data analytics) right at the edge

What is our vision for open edge computing?

That all nearby components (DSL-boxes, WiFi access points, base stations) offer resources through open and standardized mechanisms to any application, device, or sensor to enable computation at the edge.
