The Edge Internet also improves your work site by improving the machines you work with. Equipment maintenance is improved through better monitoring and reporting on all construction equipment. Moreover, IoT enabled research and development will show insight into the improvements needed by various equipment.

Drones

Two drones flying at each other, one is flying at 30mph carrying groceries, the other flying at 20mph carrying a package – how long will it be until they crash? The Edge Internet not only enables autonomous drones for a variety of industries, but enables actionable insights for these drones to know to avoid each other by putting processing at the edge.

Offer drones a new level of connectivity and intelligence with the Edge Internet. On the Edge, you can manage your fleet with easy to use dashboards. Your drones can easily be integrated at the edge while integrating your own system to the edge in order to enable drones to preform new actions with the blink of an eye. 

eSports

Esports took the world by storm. Complete the conquest by adding second screen viewing, instant replay and live in game betting, putting your tournament a leg above competition.

Offer your attendees a truly reinvented experience; by upgrading your connection to the Edge, you upgrade your offerings. Venue displays can be streamed to second screens while offering pick and choose replay analysis on the same devices. Expand your advertisement capabilities through targeting specific attendees based upon location, activity and profile data.

Internet of Things

A refrigerator informing you what groceries are needed, A house controlling its own thermostat, a world where the devices around you think for themselves. The Edge internet allows devices to process and analyze real time data while seamlessly communicating with other devices without the need for human interaction.

The Edge Internet will increase the efficiency of the Internet of Things. The energy used by the network connecting the devices will reduce by 90%. Additionally, low powered IoT devices will have battery lives that last up to ten years.

Smart Cities

Imagine a city that reduces crime, waste, and traffic while optimizing the supply of power and water. Realize that same city through the Edge Internet’s efficient management of assets and resources; What was once a dream is now a reality!

With the Edge Internet cities will think for themselves. Cities can now constantly monitor both air and water quality ensuring the safety of residents. Parking with become more efficient with smart meters reducing operating expenditures and preventing theft while offering real time insight into availability.

 

Hospitals

Better serve your patients at the edge – enable new practices by matching technology and medicine. The usage of the Edge Internet in hospitals gives modern medicine a completely new meaning. Surgeons can utilize augmented reality to gain better visualization of a patient’s needs.

The Edge Internet revolutionizes modern medicine. Medical devices are improved through constant tracking of their durability. The presence of counterfeit drugs is reduced through active drug tracking.
