Actually, edge and IoT are more than just good partners, so to speak: They are likely to increasingly depend on each other.
“Edge computing is what keeps our heads above the water in the massive flood of data streaming to and from IoT devices, where every millisecond counts – especially for use cases like healthcare monitoring and safety apps,” says Stephen Blum, CTO at PubNub. (read more)
