Many people call 2019 the first year of 5G. In fact, 2019 is also called the first year of edge computing. This year, after the official commercialization of the 5G concept, edge computing makes 5G possible, and 5G "ripens" edge computing, the two complement each other. It can be said that the entire industry is full of confidence and expectation for the deep integration of IT and IOT. In the cloud computing industry, edge computing also brings new opportunities. In China, Alibaba Cloud proposes to build a digital economy, and Tencent Cloud proposes the Industrial Internet, all of which say that traditional enterprises have become a tough battle for cloud computing manufacturers. Cloud computing vendors also hope to use edge computing to achieve cloud-side collaboration, so as to sink computing power, cover more user scenarios, and ultimately achieve "full cloudification".
What is edge computing Edge phone number list Computing and 5G Edge Computing and Cloud Computing Three application scenarios of edge computing 1. What is edge computing? Let's first look at the current definition of the mainstream of edge computing. European Telecommunications Standardization Association: Edge computing is to provide IT service environment and computing capabilities at the edge of mobile networks, emphasizing closeness to mobile users to reduce network operation and service delivery delays and improve user experience. Gartner: Edge computing describes a computing topology in which information processing, content acquisition, and distribution are all done closer to the source of the information. Wikipedia: Edge computing is a method of optimizing cloud computing systems where data processing is performed at the edge of the network, close to the source of the data.
Baidu Encyclopedia : Edge computing originated in the field of media. It refers to an open platform that integrates network, computing, storage, and application core capabilities on the side close to the source of objects or data to provide the most recent services nearby. Edge Computing Industry Alliance: Edge computing is an open platform that integrates network, computing, storage, and application core capabilities at the edge of the network near the source of things or data, and provides edge intelligent services nearby.This article will expand the following points, and finally show readers the entanglements of 5G, edge computing and cloud computing:
