Edge services: How will they affect video delivery?
2021 Outlook for Edge Services
Edge computing deploys infrastructure and apps outside of centralized data centers and clouds and closer to where the data is generated and consumed. But why be at the edge?
Well, a reduction in latency will make for rich media experiences through bandwidth-intensive applications. Resiliency in operations will ensure the availability of data and apps during limited network connectivity.
Improved security and compliance will give these organizations the confidence they need to innovate. For video delivery, this spells a boom.
