Edge Computing Will Deliver Insights Faster for Agencies

Edge computing will be particularly important for public safety and surveillance use cases, allowing agencies to conduct more data analysis at the network edge, on IP-connected cameras, without having to send that information back to central servers. That will deliver faster and more actionable insights for first responders, traffic managers and other government employees who monitor those feeds.
