The Pulse Check: Where Will Edge-Processing Live In 2025?
Many commentators on the future of enterprise have highlighted the that the enterprise of tomorrow will utilize processing power closer to the edge of the network to better support latency-sensitive applications. Headquarters, regional offices and telecommunication base stations will soon see more compute, network and storage resources. While the edge factor and its benefits are clear, it is difficult to track whether wearables, autonomous vehicles and smartphones will require enough l processing power to demand the construction of a modular site. In short, will edge connectivity require a data center? Our panel of experts will outline which applications and users will make or break the edge and whether we have overestimated the role of the data center in the edge phenomenon.
