Cloud-Fog-Edge for Utilities

Successful digital business transformation requires putting computing power where it's needed

A more distributed power grid requires a more distributed IT and computing infrastructure, with data processing capabilities and applications platforms extending all the way to the grid’s edge. This requires computing and data processing power to be located in multiple levels of the network:

  • In the cloud (cloud computing)

  • At the field-area network level (fog computing)

  • Connected devices at the edge of the network (edge computing)

The optimal location and type of computing power is driven by the operational use cases and what they require in terms of bandwidth, latency, security and other factors. Read this complimentary white paper to learn more about this hybrid computing approach and how it can help you automate and optimize grid operations.
