Infrastructure Implications for Edge Deployments

Moving compute functions to the Edge makes infrastructure more critical. Edge compute is changing the way that network and compute resources are being deployed. Many new and unfamiliar decisions will have to be made to have a successful Edge compute deployment. Physical infrastructure is foundational to Edge deployments. Robust, standards-based physical infrastructure solutions enable consistency and reliability across a geographically distributed Edge footprint. This white paper explores Edge computing and the physical infrastructure impacts it can have.
