The shift from cloud-to-edge

  1. Privacy — Your commands to Alexa/ Google devices or maybe Jarvis, stays inside the devices. The call-to-action is taken by the device itself instead of sending it through gateways to servers or clouds.
  2. Real-time responsiveness — There is practically no latency as Edge Computing enables local processing of data from the sensors present in the device, so that things like cars, drones and robots can take decisions at the split of a second.
  3. Reliability — Another benefit of Edge-enabled IoT devices is that you reduce the chance of the device failure considerably in case of remote server breakdown. Since these devices are meant to work off-the-shelf, being able to function remotely at all times.
  4. Data transmission costs — Data transmission is getting more and more expensive. With Edge capabilities, the data is stored and processed locally, drastically reducing the data volume which is transferred through the cloud.
