CommScope Definitions: What is Edge Computing?

Edge is where connection occurs. It’s the place people, devices or “things” access the network. If there is no connection, it’s not edge. Connectivity will play a critical role at the edge. The connectivity can be wireless, fiber or copper in different forms. The value of edge is data, in many cases real-time data. The majority of data at the edge is processed locally. The rest of the data can be passed to the data center for further compute and storage. If there is no data, it’s not edge. Finally, the interactions at the edge go beyond just human beings and the networks. Devices or “things” play important roles at the edge.
