In many industries, companies generate a plethora of data that is stranded, in geographically dispersed assets. This data is neither easily or instantly accessible.
An average offshore oil platform creates 1-2 TB of data every day. In order to steam data, it transmits via satellite at a speed of between 64 Kbps to 2 Mbps. It will take 12 days to upload 1 day’s worth of data.* In other instances such as maritime and midstream oil and gas, assets are often disconnected or in remote locations.
Edge computing allows users to stream and analyze data from any asset, wherever it is. Edge computing is a distributed information technology architecture whereby data is accessed, aggregated, filtered and analyzed at the periphery of the network. Edge technology does not replace the cloud or a control system, rather it augments existing systems in a cost-effective manner.*
