The Third Wave of the Internet

August 5, 2021

The third wave of the Internet is marked by substantial growth of more mobile, powerful, intelligent, and automated devices on the emerging edge network. In this environment, IT and OT will be converged and contribute to the increasing volume of data creation. This growth will outpace the growth of the core infrastructure capacity and create congestion points in the end-to-end application delivery chain, causing massive latency. Delay will bring near fatal blows to system stability and the application experience. Security challenges will also increase significantly. These conditions require a new approach—one centered around holistic application distribution and based on a different set of technology design principles. This is the essence of the Edge 2.0 era.
