How Edge Computing Complements Cellular Connectivity

March 18, 2021 at 11 AM EDT / 10 AM CDT / 8 AM PDT / 3 PM GMT

Power utilities and other energy-related organizations have long made use of cellular connectivity in their operations. They use it to monitor power continuity, balance loads, ensure public safety and enable the smart grid. Capturing data at the edge of the network is a significant part of that cellular strategy. But uploading all of the data from the field can be overkill, since so many of the readings are virtually identical. This “heartbeat data” makes a strong case for edge computing models that can distinguish between data that says “all is well” and conditions that demand your attention. This webinar will explore ways that organizations can implement edge computing technology to increase their network efficiency while lowering costs.

Implementing sophisticated software solutions can help address these challenges. Join our webinar to learn more.
