Edge computing is a distributed computing method that collects and stores massive data in a location. Further, it allows the IoT system to access the data from edges instead of the cloud or central servers. The integration of edge computing with IoT is most powerful to analyze the abundant IoT data in real time efficiently. The response time is minimized to milliseconds, and the resource consumption is very low in edge computing IoT models.
The IoT edge computing meets the following requirements such as ease of configurations, novel functionalities, high hacking potential, minimizes the load of the server, enhanced extensibility, minimum cost of licensing, and high-speed updates. The main advantages of edge computing are minimum network load, zero latency, low data exposure, efficient computation, low-cost autonomous operations, privacy, and security.
