Cable network bandwidth demands are growing exponentially as video becomes ubiquitous, Internet of Things (IoT) devices proliferate, and new wired and wireless access technologies come online. Gartner estimates 90 percent of the data generated by the massive number of Internet-connected devices is sent to regional data centers for processing, further stressing network infrastructure and increasing average response times for everyone.

With edge computing, there is an incredible opportunity for broadband connectivity providers and those offering over-the-top (OTT) applications and services to make sense of and take action on the data coming from cars, cameras, factories, enterprises, and homes. It enables entirely new categories of services requiring ultra-low latency (i.e., augmented/virtual reality (AR/VR)), enhanced data privacy (i.e.,medical records), or bandwidth optimization (i.e., video surveillance).
