The opportunities for Edge are limitless…

Edge Computing overview

AR, IoT, ML, VR and AI all rely on low latency and a reliable, secure connection. That is why we’ve invested in our Edge computing network and have been recognised as the UK’s leading Edge provider. We’re determined to help guide our customers to find their Edge. Watch our short series of Edge Use Case explainers and see where Edge could make a difference to your business.


The possibilities of Edge are endless. Here are a few examples of how we are seeing customers take advantage of the Edge:


By utilising smart cameras and video analytics, retailers are creating more competitive supply chains whilst better consumer prediction, helps retailers with more lucrative promotions.


Drones can be utilised to help improve the efficiency and security of operations at ports. Particularly relevant with recent global supply chain issues. For data security and low latency processing of large data volumes a local Edge data centre is ideal.


The UK’s ambition is to be an early adopter and leader in Smart City development. From sustainability to Free Ports and Levelling Up, cities are developing ambitious projects where Edge computing can help reduce costs and improve efficiency whilst opening up significant opportunities for local businesses.


Maintenance inspections using drones to monitor high risk sites such as chemical, oil and gas production and storage facilities generate large quantities of hi-resolution image data. Edge data centres can keep the data secure whilst reducing transit costs.


Entertainment, gaming and e-sports continues to be one of the fastest growing markets in the UK and is expected to grow even faster with mobile VR gaming made possible by Edge data centres and 5G.


Video analytics is improving customer experience, security and efficiency in successful airport operations. Edge data centres can provide secure, low latency solution for these current and future applications.
