Edge computing delivers information at the moment it is needed. Edge computing, simply said, is about reducing the information located in a centralized server, so it is freed up from the issues surrounding latency, bandwidth and geographic distance, making applications such as AI, IoT and 5G much easier to successfully accomplish. By definition, edge computing is moving user data away from a server of origin and closer to the user who needs it – at the edge.
