Edge computing

Edge computing

A form of computing for optimizing the performance of web applications and internet connected devices by completing computational processes closer to the source of data. Edge computing reduces bandwidth consumption and latency by reducing the distance of communication between clients and servers.

Edge computing is a form of computing for optimizing the performance of web applications and internet connected devices by completing computational processes closer to the source of data. Edge computing reduces bandwidth consumption and latency by reducing the distance of communication between clients and servers. Edge computing acts to decentralize the processes of cloud computing centers because it changes the geographic distribution of where computation is taking place.

Latency

The main advantage of edge computing from the point of users are the reduction in latency times edge computing can provide compared to cloud computing. Edge computing allows users to gather the information they need to run their code on the internet, typically using a web browser, by getting the information stored on a edge computing network that is closer to them than cloud computing and other related internet infrastructure. The reduction in latency offers consumers the benefit of accessing what they want faster and providers benefit by saving on server costs because the computations are done more locally using edge computing compared to cloud computing.

They are the first in Germany to already use 5G live and in colour - for real-time information during sports, training sessions with AR glasses and data gloves or self-propelled robots in factories. 18 startups in the Telekom Tech incubator hubraum tested their 5G ideas over the past few months. They had live conditions at Telekom's 5G test field in Berlin. There, they also had the possibility to use Edge Computing. With this technology, the network reacts without delay because the computi...
