What Is Intelligent EdgeFabric?

Cloud computing capabilities are centralized, which are far from devices such as cameras and sensors. It will cause long network latency, network congestion, and service quality deterioration in scenarios where high real-time computing performance is required. Furthermore, the computing capabilities of devices are insufficient and far behind those in the cloud. This is where edge computing comes in. By deploying edge nodes near devices, the computing capabilities in the cloud are extended to the edge nodes.

By managing your edge nodes, Intelligent EdgeFabric (IEF) extends cloud applications to the edge nodes and associates edge and cloud data to meet your requirements for remote control, data processing, analysis, decision-making, and intelligence of edge computing resources. IEF also provides unified on-cloud O&M capabilities, such as device/application monitoring and log collection, to offer a complete edge computing solution that contains integrated services under edge-cloud synergy.

As shown in Figure 1, IEF delivers cloud capabilities such as AI applications and function computing to the edge node, which extends public cloud capabilities to devices, so that the edge node has the same capabilities as the cloud and can process device computing requirements in real time.
