On The Edge Powering Through The Fog

A Server Technology white paper by Marc Cram


Rapid growth in public cloud (centralised compute) adoption is leading to increasing “north-south” bandwidth demands as the proliferation of devices pouring data into the cloud and drawing data back out strain both the wired and wireless internet connecting the devices to the cloud.

Edge, mobile edge, and fog computing are all approaches aimed at decentralising the compute infrastructure and improving the responsiveness observed by end client devices.

Edge computing of any variety requires coordination of widely dispersed assets, and is best supported with remotely managed intelligent power.

Data loses its value when it can't be analysed fast enough. This White Paper from Legrand, explores the data journey, and discusses how edge computing and analytics can help solve the challenge for enterprises doing the following:

  • IoT sensor data monitoring and analysis
  • Retail consumer behaviour analysis
  • Mobile data thinning
  • Compliance analysis of financial branch transactions (ATM)
  • Remote monitoring and analysis for oil and gas operations


In conclusion, this paper suggests that ongoing growth in the creation, storage, processing, and consumption of digital information is driving change in the design of the infrastructure tasked with delivering that content. Delivering reliable distributed computing performance in the form of edge, mobile edge, and fog computing requires the usage of intelligent power management that supports both AC and DC power distribution.
