at the Technology Forum on October 11, providing insight into the growing need for powerful data processing at the network edge. Forwarding all traffic to large data centers for processing overloads the network with redundant traffic, increases transport costs, and degrades the user experience. Moreover, relying on CPUs to process such large amounts of data demands additional power and space, which are especially expensive at the network edge. With these drivers, the business case for hardware-based edge computing data acceleration is clear, and the industry is trending in this direction. In particular, the values of all-programmable FPGA-based data acceleration for edge computing are more than evident.
