Experts Panel: Edge Computing and
The Modern LAN

Most on-premises security system applications are running on technology infrastructure (computers and networks) whose architectures are 30 to 40 years old. They have a high total cost of ownership (TCO) and Total Cost of Service (TCS), and low performance capabilities compared to current-day technology.

Learn how today’s edge computing – based on efficient high-performance cloud technologies, modern networking, and intelligent security devices – is significantly improving the cost-effectiveness and security-effectiveness of electronic physical security system deployments.
