Edge computing will enable the property managers to process data close to the property with increased processing speed.
FREMONT, CA: Edge computing is improving the data processing capabilities of several industries. Real estate is one of the numerous industries that can potentially benefit from the potentials of edge computing. The technology promises a wide range of advantages to real estate as well as property managers. Edge computing can significantly offset the bandwidth requirement required to operate smart building deployments. The technology is especially advantageous for supporting in-building and campus networks as individuals on building or campus may need particular content or application. Moreover, in-building wireless systems are constantly being financed by third-party firms and then leased back to network managers. Thus, the property campus is expected to have a safe data center space, which is enough for the edge computing deployment.
Edge computing can gather data generated by IoT or smart devices and then process it near to the property instead of transferring it elsewhere. Such a setup allows closer and more localized data enabling users to save data and process applications locally. The channel for cloud computation can be almost anything, like a mobile tower, a mobile phone, a laptop, or even a car. The collected data can be processed close to the property in a micro data center.
Edge data centers have started to evolve near to high-device density places like stadiums and airports as the transmission requirements and data generation are high in such places. Smaller micro data centers are also emerging within office buildings to address ever-increasing data transmission demand due to increased applications and devices. The proliferation of edge computing will cover various domains of real estate, like property management and maintenance.
The essence of edge computing in real estate will rely on its deployment and the purpose for which the technology is being incorporated.
