Edge Computing: An Era of Advance Computations in Internet of Things
With the rapid increase in the demand of Internet of Things (IoT) users, centralized cloud computing model faces several issues such as delay in response, poor latency and network failure. To overcome these challenges, a new computing model is introduced known as edge computing that provides computations and processing at the edge of network. The edge computing provides processing of data and storage locally at the IoT devices available at the edge of network instead of forwarding data to the cloud. In this paper we will discuss about edge computing, its benefits over cloud computing and various types of edge computing. We will also present various challenges in the field of edge computing as well as its future scope.
