Edge computing allows data collection and analytics to take place at the source of the data. It drives the frontier of services, data and away from centralized nodes to the logical extremes of a network. Edge computing optimizes cloud computing systems by means of performing data processing at the edge of the network, near the source of the data.Edge computing architecture is suitable for a number of situations which contains poor connectivity of IoT devices.
Proliferation of IOT is one of the main reasons driving the growth of global edge computing market. Internet of things (IoT) has transformed every aspect of human life.
