E-Book: Defining Edge Computing and applying it to the built environment
Edge Computing is an optimized method of Cloud computing systems in which data processing is performed at the ‘Edge’ of the network, near the source of the data.
In conventional Cloud computing, devices at the Edge of the network are connected to a central network to which data is transmitted for processing and the response is sent back to the Edge device. This method creates latency and in certain applications even the smallest delay can impact the overall system.
