Edge computing: The architecture of the future

To fully digitize the last mile of business, you need to distribute compute power where it’s needed most — right next to IoT devices that collect data from the real world. Edge computing provides a vital layer of compute and storage physically close to IoT endpoints, so that control devices can respond with low latency – and edge analytics processing can reduce the amount of data that needs to be transferred to the core.

Webinar: Data Center Infrastructure – The Update & New Considerations

New applications, the enormous demands placed on the internet in the age of COVID 19, and moving from the enterprise space to the hyper-local edge installation all demand a rethinking of what the data center should look like. While the core components remain the same, this webinar will address how we must rethink how we specify and install enclosures, power, climate control and related accessories.

Understanding the intelligent edge

Edge computing sits at the intersection of artificial intelligence, the internet of things and big data and provides the flexibility of a hybrid model that can take advantage of both data center infrastructure and the cloud. By 2025, experts expect there will be 41.6 billion IoT devices, each equipped with sensors gathering information each second. It’s simply not reasonable for all that data to be streamed back to a central data center or traditional on-premises computing environment. By bringing compute power to the edge and integrating increasingly mature AI — a combination referred to as the “intelligent edge” — agencies can actually use this rapid expansion of data to help their missions.

No future megatrends without real time capable fiber optics

Experts agree: without a modern, real-time-capable infrastructure, neither the Internet of Things (IoT), nor autonomous driving or Smart Cities can be realized. The fact is that data volumes around the globe are exploding. Real-time data processing is only possible with 5G mobile communications and Edge Computing. Modern & high-performance fiber optics cabling is the prerequisite.

Webinar: To the Edge and Back

This webinar gives data center managers some key cabling strategies to manage multiple waves of 5G — helping ensure next-generation coverage for billions of devices. Topics include the three phases of 5G deployment, data processing at the edge to reduce latency, and centralized data centers to support the workloads generated by 5G.
