The edge computing market size is expected to grow from USD 1.47 Billion in 2017 to USD 6.72 Billion by 2022, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 35.4% during the forecast period.1
A voluminous increase in the amount of data generated from millions of devices streaming music, videos, social networking, is creating a high network load and demand for more bandwidth. Edge computing is one of the most feasible solutions when it comes to improving user experience and optimizing bandwidth usage.
Increased load on cloud infrastructure, growing application range in various types of industries, and an increase in the number of intelligent and connected devices are the main driving forces for the Edge Computing Market.
Amongst this growing market for Edge Computing, organizations need to equip themselves with information about the latest and upcoming trends in the edge computing and edge datacenters, the strong market players, opportunities etc.
To explore how computing data at the edge will connect everything, BroadGroup is conducting Edge 2018 on October 24-25, 2018 at Austin, Texas.
Let’s quickly take a sneak peek into Edge 2018
