Edge specialist Vapor IO has organized the Kinetic Edge Alliance, a group of hardware, software and networking companies that will collaborate on integrated edge solutions. The Alliance “provides the vehicle for delivering nationwide edge computing, removing the guesswork from edge deployment and operations that exists today,” said Cole Crawford, the founder and CEO of Vapor IO. “The alliance will accelerate the rollout of edge computing, delivering a platform for wireless operators and application providers to deliver new edge-enabled products and services to customers.”
Edge computing isn’t a single technology, but a number of hardware and software technologies that will work together to support new services and faster data transfer. It’s not always easy for customers and users to see how it will all come together.
