Edge Computing Research Topics

Edge Computing is a type of network in which it mainly focuses on bringing a centralized data center as near as possible to the user or originated place for data processing. If you are interested in learning more on this topic, you can go through this paper.

  1. Define Edge Computing

The definition of Edge Computing goes like, the applications which are required by the user, will be brought near to user, directly to the user’s device or to the edge network.

  1. What is Edge Computing?

The architecture of edge computing has distributed IT model, so they it can bring the computing resources like data centers and cloud, closer to the originating point. Minimizing the latency requirements for data processing and to reduce the network cost is being the main motive for edge computing. Edge can be used in multiple ways such as multiplexers, routers, routing switches, ISP and “Integrated access devices” (IAD). One important thing which should be noticed about this edge network is that, this network should be located near to the user device.
