Edge computing

Edge Processing is a distributed computing paradigm which brings computation and data storage closer to the location where it is needed, to improve response time, network efficiency and save bandwidth. It mainly refers to pushing the frontier of computing applications, data, and services away from centralized nodes to the logical extremes of a network.

Edge enables analytics and data gathering to occur at the source of the data. It is the deployment of data-handling activities or other network operations away from centralized and always-connected network segments, and towards individual sources of data capture.
