Edge computing, sensors, 5g bring IOT closer to us

the word IOT is no longer unfamiliar to most people. Even 5g, a technology that has not yet been commercially available, has become well known because of media reports that it is closely related to people's lives. However, compared with ordinary consumers, sensors and edge computing seem to be vocabulary that can be learned. As for the recent emergence of edge computing, It seems even more confusing, so what technology do these terms represent and what impact do they have on IOT

edge computing

the 12 months in 2016 can be said to be the dissemination period of the concept of edge computing, and many manufacturers have made great efforts in edge computing. According to the official interpretation of arm, edge computing is an open platform that integrates the core capabilities of network, computing, storage and application at the edge of the network close to the object or data source. Previously, it was responsible for providing edge intelligent services for e-commerce projects in China's No. 5 mining industry, meeting the key needs of the industry's three-year expected annual yield of 5.5%, business intelligence, data aggregation and interoperability, security and privacy protection, etc

to put it simply, edge computing is to deploy the mobile off function and some third-party applications and content to the edge of the access side, without accessing the cloud, so as to save resources, reduce latency, improve computing speed, and improve resource conversion rate. According to the newly released white paper of edge computing industry alliance, edge computing has three development stages: connectivity, intelligence and autonomy

obviously, this mode has great significance for the realization of smart home and IOT. At the same time, on the contrary, from the perspective of cloud computing, some data is really not suitable for cloud computing. This edge computing method can also reduce the pressure on the cloud


according to Wikipedia, a sensor is a device or device that can feel the specified measured and convert into usable output signals according to a certain law, which is usually composed of sensitive elements and conversion elements. "Sensor" is defined as "a device that receives power from one system and usually sends power to the second system in another form" in the dictionary that determines the structure of the tension machine

in the process of people's continuous progress towards the IOT, sensors play a very important role. Even in the process of unmanned vehicle research and development, sensors have become the most critical science and technology for the realization of unmanned driving. To achieve the research and development of unmanned vehicles, sensors, ranging from voice controlled lights to induction lights, are acting as "switches"


4G networks have not been popularized in many rural areas of China, but 5g can't stand loneliness and hopes to get a place. Whether it is the proposal of the concept of smart city, the popularity of live video platforms, or the general trend of IOT, 5g is advancing rapidly

the fifth generation mobile communication system (English: 5th generation mobile networks or 5th generation wireless systems), referred to as 5g, refers to the fifth generation of mobile communication technology, which is also an extension after 4G. It is currently under active research and development. At present, the general prediction for 5g is that 5g commercial use will be achieved in 2020

in terms of technological maturity, 5g can indeed provide lower delay, higher reliability, higher compatibility when dealing with high user peaks, and at the same time, it has the characteristics of power saving and flexibility. The spectrum that 5g may use is 28ghz and 60GHz, which are more mature than 4G and 4.5g in the transition period. In the future, clothing, shoes and hats, building energy conservation and other fields will have huge utilization prospects, with obvious advantages

the above three technologies are important evidences for us to move towards smart family, smart city and IOT world. Of course, as the author mentioned earlier, these technologies are still in the immature stage, and it will take at least three years or more than ten years for the real product to be launched
