The convergence of cloud and edge is bringing cloud services closer to the end-user for richer, higher performance, and lower latency experiences. At the same time, it is creating new business opportunities for cloud service providers and telecom providers alike as they deliver localized, highly responsive services that enable new online applications.
Edge computing applications include information security, traffic and materials flow management, autonomous vehicle control, augmented and virtual reality, and many others that depend on rapid response. For control systems in particular, data must be delivered reliably and with little time for change between data collection and issuing of commands based on that data.
To minimize application latency, service providers are moving the data collection, storage, and processing infrastructure closer to the point of use—that is, to the network edge. To create the edge computing infrastructure, cloud service providers are partnering with telecommunications companies to deliver cloud services on power- and performance-optimized infrastructure at the network edge.
Synopsys’ DesignWare® Foundation IP, Interface IP, Security IP, and Processor IP are optimized for high performance, low latency, and low power, while supporting the most advanced process technologies.
