Data at the Edge: Evolving Your Network Infrastructure to Support the Growth of IoT & Cloud

Author

Abstract

The Internet of Things as well as the evolution and continued utilization of cloud technologies are dependent upon the underlying infrastructure of the modern all IP-based Internet over which these services and data are delivered. Real-time communications and streaming data as well as a host of next- generation, cloud-based applications must all be provisioned with the lowest latency possible.

This discussion will focus on how the localization of peering points and the selection of tactical “edge” colocation facilities in close proximity to the end-user will reduce costs, increase performance and better meet the latency and security needs of the network and its stakeholders.

Today’s bandwidth-intensive and latency-sensitive cloud content requires a new infrastructure – The Internet of Everywhere. Latency affects the maximum rate data can be transmitted efficiently and effectively and is determined by speed and distance. The Internet of Everywhere eliminates distance and delivers content faster while improving the user’s experience and enhancing security.

The Internet’s design will completely change over the next five years to address the new needs of content and the demands of users. This presentation will reveal to attendees how that’s going to happen and why they need to adapt their thinking or prepare to have their business models disrupted.
