You must have heard about cloud computing earlier. In cloud computing we deal with the activities like data management, data storing and data retrieving from any other device just by using a virtual network or internet. Today, we will know something about edge computing and how it will be useful in next generation technology.
In the 1990s, The main concept of edge computing was taken when Akamai solved the challenge of Web traffic congestion by introducing Content Delivery Network (CDN) solutions. The technology included network nodes that cached static media in locations closer to the end users.
Today, edge computing takes this concept further, introducing computational capabilities into nodes at the network edge to process information and deliver services to the end user.
