  What is the use of the Internet? It is now estimated that everyone is aware of it and can talk about it. For example, the Internet can sell things, and it has spawned the world’s largest shopping festival...
  Then, what is the Internet of Things, how to use it? It is estimated that there are still many people who can‘t figure it out. Referring to the edge calculation, it is estimated that many people are starting to circle. Today, let‘s talk about the things of the Internet of Things and edge computing.
  What is the Internet of Things? In short, it is one of the largest networks in the world so far. It is all-inclusive, from telecom base stations to small smartphones, which can be used for computing, storage, and data analysis...
  Statistics show that by 2020, there will be more than 50 billion terminals connected to devices worldwide; in the future, more than 40% of data needs to be analyzed, processed and stored on the edge of the network.
  One of the characteristics of the Internet of Things is where data is generated, where computing, storage, and analysis are done, without having to pass all of the data to the data center or cloud for centralized processing. Distributed, nearby processing will become the "new normal." So, when it comes to the Internet of Things, one has to say that a concept is "edge computing."
  The story that has to be said between the Internet of Things and edge computing
  What is edge computing? It is a distributed open platform that integrates network, computing, storage, and application core capabilities on the edge of the network near the source or data source. Provide edge intelligence services in the vicinity to meet the key needs of industry digitalization in agile connectivity, real-time business, data optimization, application intelligence, security and privacy protection.
  The Internet of Things is the foundation and driving force for the development of edge computing. In turn, edge computing is the technical basis for supporting the Internet of Things. If the Internet of Things is likened to an application, then edge computing is its technical core.
  In the coming era of Internet of Everything, the physical objects connected by the Internet of Things will be diverse and the application scenarios will be rich. The connection functions, the real-time and diversity of data will pose new challenges to the deployment and implementation of the Internet of Things. This is also the key issue to be solved by edge computing.
  The story that has to be said between the Internet of Things and edge computing
  As the number of devices joining the network continues to increase, the scale of the network continues to expand, and the real-time analysis of massive amounts of data is increasingly demanding, and the characteristics of efficient, timely, and secure processing of distributed data by edge computing just meet this requirement.
  In the past, data in the data center or data outside the data was transmitted to the data center for centralized processing, which increased the pressure on transmission and increased storage costs. The advantage of edge computing is that the data is stored and processed on the edge of the network, which will greatly reduce costs and improve processing efficiency.
  As a key part of edge computing, operators have made in-depth preparations in terms of hardware solutions and software solutions. It is understood that China Mobile has done a number of technical research in the field of edge computing, and also has long-term planning in the preparation of hardware equipment and the deployment of future edge computer rooms.
  On October 30th, China Mobile Edge Computing Open Lab was formally announced at the 2018 Edge Computing Technology Summit jointly hosted by China Communications Society and China Mobile. According to Duan Xiaodong, director of China Mobile Network and IT Technology Research Institute, this open laboratory will further accelerate the technological innovation, industrial cooperation and hatch of edge computing. At present, China Mobile has launched a variety of edge computing application pilots in the existing networks of more than 20 cities in 10 provinces across the country. There are content cache / CDN (Shandong, Zhejiang, Hubei, Beijing), positioning applications (Beijing, Sichuan, Jiangsu, Guangdong), local network / live broadcast (Shanghai, Zhejiang, Anhui, Jiangxi), cross-layer optimization (Zhejiang). In the future, China Mobile will further expand the pilot scale and promote the application of edge computing.
  In the future, the Internet of Things and edge computing will penetrate into various fields to provide end users with a more convenient life and provide new growth points for traditional industries. In the future, various applications based on user depth requirements will be splendid. The scenes depicted in science fiction are about to become a reality.
