Edge Congress Europe Launches 'The Edge Enterprise Forum' Precon on March 25th


The speed and volume at which data is shared and processed has become a critical factor for users close to the network. How Edge will develop in Europe in its early deployment is the subject of a new Precon to the Edge Europe event taking place on the afternoon of 25th March. 

Current cloud models will not be able in the coming years to manage ultra low-latency that businesses require and in the drive towards immediacy of data sharing and processing, Edge will in its initial stages of growth impact most the more complex enterprises in the initial stages of growth. 

Sectors such as auto manufacturing, utilities, oil and gas, gaming and retail are turning to Edge technology with Germany boasting a first mover advantage when it comes to regulation, technological adoption and standards.

The focus of Edge in Europe at present is in deploying within complex manufacturing plants, and in developing automated car systems and motorways.

Smart factories offer a very interesting case study as technologies and devices within a typical manufacturing plant delivering precision engineering, the storage and security of data necessary to facilitate this becomes more and more critical.

In the automobile sector develops self-drive and semi-automated vehicles (think self-parking) the speed at which these devices need to communicate with each other, local devices and the environment around them becomes critical and for purposes of safety, extremely fast.

Beyond these developments, Edge infrastructure deployment is evolving to enable full deployment of 5G.

Edge Europe 2020, will be hosting this year's European event in Frankfurt, Mainz, Germany with the Precon on afternoon of 25th March, and the main conference on 26th March. The premier gathering of Edge technology manufacturers, early adopters of Edge and the new wave of Edge deployers.
