Cyber Security Considerations for the Edge-Cloud (Part 2)

In Part 1, we discussed possible sources of cyber-attacks on the edge-cloud network. With the advent of edge and 5G technology and the more prominent use of IoT devices in our homes and cities, cybersecurity is more important than ever. In this article, we will see which design principles can be implemented at the core of […]

Cyber Security Considerations for the Edge-Cloud (Part 1)

Edge computing and local data storage offer a host of benefits to end-users and enterprises alike. Combined with the power of 5G, this technology can usher in a whole new class of applications. The characteristics of edge computing also support a wider implementation of IoT devices. However, edge servers and edge-based devices and applications are […]

Using 5G and Edge Computing to Optimize Crane Operations

When thinking about edge computing and 5G applications, we immediately think of cool AR navigation systems or smart homes and cities. But, for any city to exist, it must be built first, brick and mortar. The global construction industry constitutes 15% of the global GDP and is only set to grow in the future. It’s […]

Using Edge Computing for Easy Indoor Navigation

Imagine this: you’re wandering around a huge shopping mall, looking for that one, specific shop, and you only have 15 minutes to find it. Not an easy task, right? Big airports can also be a nightmare, and who can ever remember where they parked in a huge parking lot? GPS-based indoor navigation often fails. A […]

Edge computing – a new frontier for development

With the rollout of 5G networks and an increasing number of companies opting to develop edge computing services and devices, it’s becoming clear that edge computing will become a new platform for development. Bill Gates famously said that a company creates a platform once the value of the people using it exceeds the value of […]

How next-generation technologies are driving Industry 4.0

Empowering the fourth industrial revolution with smart communication technologies The fourth industrial revolution is underway, and it’s transforming the world of production and manufacturing. Lights-out manufacturing, in which factories can function with little or no human supervision, is helping industry become safer and more sustainable. Connected systems on production floors are being used to optimize […]

Multi-access Edge Computing is redefining social gaming

Keeping players engaged during quarantine with edge computing-enabled social gaming. With much of the world’s population facing stay-at-home orders or recommendations in the wake of Covid-19, many industries need to rethink how they deliver value to their customers. One of the lesser-known casualties of the pandemic is social gaming, which uses augmented or virtual reality […]

Why does a flying COW need edge computing?

In the aftermath of hurricane Maria, the flying Cell On Wings (COW) was deployed in Puerto Rico. This was AT&T’s first official deployment of the flying COW. The hurricane left Puerto Rico’s communication infrastructure in shambles. As cleanup efforts got underway, emergency services and the local population needed connectivity more than ever. When nature strikes, getting communication […]

A Platform for Mobile Edge Computing – White Paper from AWS, HPE & Saguna

What’s the “killer app”? A couple of years ago, this was a typical question in discussions about Mobile Edge Computing (MEC).  Today, things are changing. Edge Computing is gaining momentum across the industry with a proliferation of MEC use cases. Services targeted by MEC providers include initiatives like AT&T MEC AR, VR Test Zone,  Vodafone, AWS & Saguna’s […]
