Three-layer IoT edge system cake: Add specialized hardware, bake at low latency

“Internet of things” edge devices are causing quite a few headaches for technology vendors and businesses alike. Their whole selling point — intelligent, real-time decision-making at the edge of computing networks — is defeated by the latency of moving data back and forth to a cloud or physical data center for analytics. But edge devices can’t hack all the compute work themselves. Will edge systems connecting primary, secondary and tertiary data levels with low latency evolve to solve this snafu? “The software and the devices need to be a single unit. And for the most part, they need to […]
