Click for: original source

A quick intro into IoT networking. Networks around the world are going through a massive transformation in which edge computing devices and edge infrastructure development hold a key role. This edge revolution is to leverage the potential of IoT that will be unleashed on the back of 5G roll out in future not so far.

Article then briefly explains:

  • Multi-Access Edge Computing
  • Fog computing
  • Cloudlets
  • Micro Data Centers

Fog computing, fog networking or merely “fogging”, is a term used to described a decentralized computing infrastructure which both extends cloud computing to the edge of a network. It is also an attempt to reduce the data transported to the cloud for processing, analysis and/or storage.
