Edge Computing Technology and Business Impacts, Challenges, and Opportunities

The evolution of cloud computing systems includes an expanded the role for computational infrastructure to encompass an increasing workload for edge computing equipment. This will especially be the case in Internet of Things (IoT) networks and systems as well as cellular communications networks. In the former, edge computing is sometimes referred to as Fog Computing, and in the latter, the term is Mobile Edge Computing (MEC), which is also known now as Multi-access Edge Computing to include means of access other than cellular such as WiFi and even some fixed network methods.
