IoT is gaining popularity because it allows businesses and individuals to automate and monitor their environments easily. It has made tasks such as turning on lights or adjusting thermostats and remote monitoring and control devices a walkover.
IoT refers to a network of connected devices, including computers, sensors, and actuators, that share and exchange real-time data. This information can be used to initiate an action or to notify a user of an action they have not initiated. IoT connects and controls physical objects via the internet, allowing them to send and receive data.
What is IoT Edge Computing
IoT Edge Computing is a technology that allows data processing to occur closer to the data source. This technology reduces latency and provides more real-time analytics and insights. IoT Edge computing allows data to be processed at the network’s edge rather than sending it to the cloud for processing. This can be useful in various situations, mainly when connectivity to the cloud is limited or non-existent or when real-time data processing is required.
IoT Edge computing helps to reduce the costs associated with sending large amounts of data to the cloud for processing. With data being processed locally rather than across the network, it becomes easy to detect potential threats and alert users to potential risks by allowing connected devices to communicate with one another. This aids in the reduction of malicious attacks and unauthorized access to sensitive data.
