With the increase of our digital consumption and all connected objects, the large stream of data generated must be stored and analyzed closer to the consumer for an improved customer experience. Indeed, to communicate with a remote data center will increase latency, which is not favorable to some areas. With the arrival of 5G for example, which is a real boost for edge computing, there is a need to process information almost instantaneously, whether in everyday use, in transportation with the autonomous car or company in multiple industries like health, finance or manufacturing, where latency is crucial for users.

What Is Edge Computing?

Edge computing refers to computing that takes place at or near the physical location of the user or data source. By bringing computing services closer to these locations, edge computing allows users to take advantage of faster, more reliable services and gives businesses the flexibility of a hybrid cloud.

How Does Edge Computing Works?

Edge Computing is a method of processing data locally, close to users and devices. This saves bandwidth and reduces latency to give users the high-speed digital experiences they expect.

Simply put, Edge Computing brings data, information, and decision-making closer to the objects that use it, such as an IoT terminal or a user's computer. Rather than relying on a central location that may be thousands of miles away, the edge of the Internet will always be as close as possible to those “objects”.

This is how the physical world and the digital world interact at the edge of the Internet. Edge computing converts these interactions into data, which can be used to decide, search for patterns, or pass data to a storage or analytics application for further analysis. The goal is to ensure reliable and scalable deployment so that data, especially real-time data, does not experience latency that could affect the purpose or performance of an application.

Our Edge Computing Solutions

Rugged & Embedded Products

Our Tranquil range is composed of compact rugged PCs capable of handling extreme conditions: humidity, rain, sand, wind… our products are designed and manufactured to meet your most complex needs and last anywhere.

The benefits of our rugged edge computers are:

  • Capable of handling any type of weather
  • All rugged products are certified with a High Ingress Protection (IP) rating, which indicates the protection level of our embedded products (against both liquid and solid).
  • Cooled with passive cooling technology optimized for efficiency and durability. 
  • The aluminum we use for the chassis production is repurposed and recycled.

All Tranquil range products are fanless, which give them a lot of benefits, especially for edge computing and IoT needs.

  • No fans lengthen the lifespan of the rugged products because it eliminates the risk to draw in dust and dirt from the environment.
  • No moving parts enable our embedded computers to resist shocks and vibrations for increased reliability in any environment.
  • It also allows an important decrease in power consumption.

Tranquil Edge computers are classified in 3 ranges.

What is Edge Computing used for?

Edge computing can range from using mobile applications, online shopping, checking your bank balance and streaming media to interacting with a connected terminal, such as a lamp, doorbell, or car, to checking in for a flight or train ride.

All these services require real-time, large-scale information processing. These examples illustrate how edge computing can make the difference between a great experience and a slow, frustrating one.

Edge Computing is far from new, but for decades it has been too far ahead of its time to be taken fully seriously. Ultra-fast stock trading or the optimization and localization of services in branch offices have long been examples of this famous alignment of business logic and location. New technologies offer more opportunities to leverage the power of edge computing, such as enabling faster decisions for connected cars and other IoT devices or improving network processing speeds with 5G.

Top 4 benefits of Edge Computing

  1. Enhanced Speed: Edge computing brings devices closer to the data source, reducing the physical distance data needs to travel and minimizing transfer time. This approach also alleviates network congestion and lags, resulting in significantly improved responsiveness, speed, and service quality.
  2. Reduced Latency: Edge computing leverages a distributed network architecture, leading to decreased latency and enabling real-time responsiveness. This not only enhances the user experience, but also facilitates real-time decision-making.
  3. Uninterrupted Connections: By enabling IoT applications to utilize less bandwidth and function effectively even with limited connectivity, edge computing ensures uninterrupted operations under challenging network conditions.
  4. Cost Savings: Edge computing helps reduce costs through various means. It minimizes required bandwidth, replaces traditional data centers with efficient edge device solutions, and reduces storage requirements. These factors contribute to overall cost optimization.
