Panel: Edge Computing – A Must for 5G and IOT Success
As the federal government evolves into the “new normal” as a result of COVID-19, Federal data architectures have changed to adapt. Edge computing, alongside 5G and IOT, has created the opportunity for more efficient decisioning at the point of events. Data can be analyzed at near real-time speeds, accelerating decisions that impact critical missions and improve government operations. By collecting and processing data closer to the network edge, less data needs to travel across the network. Shipping less data means less data at risk. It also means less network bandwidth consumed or required.
With the rise of remote work it is of the most importance to secure data where it is stored and while it is in flight. Agencies need secure technology infrastructure that can be accessed anywhere, at any time. New data architectures are allowing government employees to securely access data wherever they may be. This past year has shown the need for zero trust data access that enables users to access the data they need to get their jobs done no matter where they are working.
