In recent years, the IoT industry has seen many advancements. Some of the most notable are in Systems-on-a-Chip (SoCs). The shifts in this space have created a series of commercial devices that can do everything from run algorithms to provide comprehensive operating systems.
This is an exciting shift, and it represents a new wave in the world of IoT. While the IoT of yesteryear relied on the process of collecting information from various sources and analyzing it, this has changed in recent years.
Today, many people are referring to this change as Edge Computing. It is named such because a great deal of the work takes place at the "Edge" of a network. It's more than that, though: it's a streamlined integration between the Cloud and IoT, and it represents the marriage between the computation world and the physical world.
Here's what you need to know about IoT Edge, and how it can impact your business.
