Edge IoT refers to the decentralized computing infrastructure where processing power and data storage are distributed across the network edge devices, including IoT sensors, gateways, and routers, rather than on centralized servers or cloud platforms. This architecture reduces data transfer and processing time, as data is processed locally, allowing for faster insights and more efficient use of network resources. Edge IoT is becoming increasingly popular in various industries, including manufacturing, transportation, and healthcare, where real-time data processing is critical.
Some of the benefits of Edge IoT include lower latency, reduced bandwidth consumption, enhanced data security and privacy, and improved scalability. However, there are also some challenges, such as the complexity of managing distributed infrastructure, potential compatibility issues between devices, and the need for robust security measures to protect against cyber threats and data breaches. Despite these challenges, Edge IoT is expected to play a significant role in shaping the future of the IoT industry.
- Low latency and faster data processing
- More efficient use of network bandwidth
- Reduced cost for data transmission
- Improved security by limiting data exposure to the network
- Requires additional hardware and infrastructure at the edge of the network
- May be more complex to manage and maintain
- Limited scalability due to the need for distributed hardware
- Potential for data duplication and inconsistencies if not managed properly
