Accelerated adoption of Internet of Things (IoT) with In-network computing and Cloud


Published on

In-network computing gives you the ability to compute at a particular point in the network where it can deliver maximum value. This opens new avenues of how applications and services are conceptualized or implemented, harvesting the benefits of distributed computing. In-network computing has significant benefits for the network infrastructure as it improves latency for end user/ devices while it also reduces the network traffic to a great extent. Emerging technologies like IoT and its application can immensely benefit by using In-network computing technology in conjunction with cloud technologies.

  11. 11. Renewable energy is changing the grid dynamics with more and more end users becoming power producers (Client = Consumers + Producers). Further proliferation in renewable energy sources will cause accelerated change in this phenomenon Renewable power needs to be handled differently, its dependency on external / environmental factors, consumption, generation, storage will generate a demand for computing infrastructure to manage such users / producers. In-network computing has the ability to address this Smartgrids:Newbreedofclients(consumers+producers) 11
