Edge computing plays a crucial role in the Internet of Things (IoT), enabling real-time data processing and analysis at the edge of the network. In IoT, vast amounts of data are generated by connected devices such as sensors and cameras. Edge computing brings computation power closer to these devices, allowing for faster response times and reduced latency. By processing data locally, edge computing minimizes the need to transmit all data back to a centralized cloud server. This not only improves efficiency but also reduces bandwidth requirements.
