DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/2drh82/going_to_the_edge) has announced the addition of the "Going to the Edge with Security " report to their offering.
In this SPIE, we examine an alternative approach of pushing security processing outward to the edge of carrier networks.
More than Protection
The prospect of moving security processing to the edge of carrier networks is not exclusively for the benefit of optimizing the performance experience of connected users, and reducing costs, but also has a bearing on the changing nature of network traffic flows and the implications on congestion.
Conceptually, a looming issue with changing network traffic flows is the rising bandwidth capacity and use of access networks (wireless and wired) relative to the capacity of core networks.
Simplistically stated, is the cumulative effect of escalation in the number of connected endpoints (e.g., mobile devices, homes, business locations, and the Internet of Things-IoT) and destinations (e.g., Web sites and cloud), changes in high-bandwidth traffic patterns (e.g., cloud-to-cloud, on-premises data center-tocloud), plus generational leaps in mobile(from 3G to 4G and then to 5G) and wired (from megabit TDM to gigabit and beyond with Ethernet) access networks outstripping the capacity of core networks.
