Edge infrastructure is slowly moving from a buzzword to the norm within many different sectors. With the low latency it provides, companies are finding ways to digitize, automate, and improve their operations by bringing their compute closer to the Edge.

But while progress is being made, the development and utility of the Edge is limited by a variety of factors, including its financial viability and task complexity.

The concept of the ‘Edge’ is also blurred. There is no one-size-fits-all approach, and the version of the Edge for a specific application can look entirely different.

This supplement picks three very different sectors, each in its way a pioneer exploring its own distinct vision of the Edge.
