How the Rise of Edge Computing will Reshape the Data Center Landscape

In the next decade, we will continue to see skyrocketing growth in the number of IP-connected mobile and machine-to-machine (M2M) devices, which will handle significant amounts of IP traffic. Tomorrow’s consumers will demand better online experiences and faster, smoother Wi-Fi service and application delivery from online providers. Also, some M2M devices, such as autonomous vehicles (self-driving cars), will require real-time communications with local processing resources to guarantee safety and avoid accidents.
