The world is producing greater amounts of data applied for increasingly smart applications which require massive amounts of processing and computing. These smart applications are utilizing a diversity of hardware with billions of connected devices in the world capturing and exchanging data in use cases across a spectrum of verticals. The Internet of Things has become nearly omnipresent in our environment. The new generation of smart IoT applications face challenges in legacy systems and require decision-makers to pursue optimizations to issues like latency, security, privacy, connectivity and cost.
A new generation of innovative technology solutions that lower latency are converging to empower an industrial transformation upon which tomorrow’s world will be iterated and dependent. This is driven by the need of seamless high data exchange applications that currently experience challenges in the latency of their network connectivity, meaning the amount of time it takes for data to travel between sender and receiver is too long. There is a growing portfolio of solutions aiming to lower latency making far-reaching new applications possible and existing use cases more efficient.
