Core to Edge: How Internet of Things Is Shaping the Future of Infrastructure

By: Hugh UjhazyVice President, IoT and Telecommunications, Abhishek MukherjeeSenior Market Analyst


Internet of Things (IoT) has become an accepted term finding its applications across different industry verticals. Although the quantum of connected devices in IoT platform are increasing, price, throughput, and latency become key considerations for a successful deployment. Hence, to ensure IoT solutions to be robust and responsive, it is evident to rethink on the IoT integration platform. An IoT platform provides the foundation for connecting devices to the Internet, acquiring the generated data, storing it in the manner and location which aligns with utilization requirements in the business and processing them in a meaningful way to get the desired output. Thus, an IoT platform offers unified management of connected devices, leaving developers to focus on the added value of a particular solution. However, even though IoT platforms can be described with one common definition, their actual implementation and structure can greatly vary.

This perspective discusses the evolution of IoT solutions as they engage two approaches to the creation and management of IoT platform architectures, namely cloud computing and edge computing, and summarizes their suitability for specific environments.

"With the inclusion of data processing and analytics requirements, technology suppliers need to focus on the vertical-specific solution and take a multifaceted approach to deployment," says Abhishek Mukherjee, senior market analyst, IDC India." Depending on the data processing and latency requirement, the IoT infrastructure can be laid out in terms of light and heavy edge, it is imperative to align the data governance, risk and compliance (GRC) policies across core and the edge infrastructure," he adds.
