Maximize the impact of your Edge Computing initiatives

Types of Edge Computing

We will now focus on the different types of edge computing.

Sensor edge

In a typical closed-loop system, sensors are the first point from which events are transmitted to back-end systems. When using a video camera, for example, the best practice is to send live feeds whenever there is movement.

Device edge

Customers use multiple types of devices to perform specific types of functions. X-ray machines, vending machines, motors and other peculiar gadgets are some examples. Data from these devices may be collected and evaluated to facilitate the proper functioning of these devices. In this case, computing resources are deployed close to the devices so that workloads can be handled easily.

edge of the router

If we consider the main purpose of a router, it is to deliver packets across networks. They effectively serve as the determining factor between internal networks and external systems. Few professional routers come with built-in computer modules and support application hosting.

branch edge

A branch office is described as a separate location from the head office and established to perform some type of task. Each branch uses a varied set of programs depending on its needs and the function the particular branch performs. For example, in the retail industry, this system may be a point-of-sale program used in the storefront.

Since these applications are critical to the operation of the business, they should be hosted on a branch edge network to prevent any latency from affecting user access to the applications.

Enterprise edge

Computing resources can be used by the many branches of a company that operates in a distributed environment with branch offices spread across a location. The main objective is to facilitate management and produce economies of scale.

In this approach, edge computing devices are housed at a shared site that is connected to the corporate network rather than being placed at each location.

Data center edge

Today, more and more customers are migrating from their current data center to the cloud network. As a result, we are seeing the emergence of small data centers, allowing the edge to be deployed closer to the customer and facilitating rapid deployment and portability of data on specific events.

edge of the cloud

Cloud service providers offer targeted services that are more convenient for the customer. This is done to ensure that processes such as content delivery run as efficiently as possible. Although CDNs were not designed to handle typical workloads, they are sometimes used to describe the edges of the cloud.
