For some people, the Edge is defined as being located in either a Tier 2 or Tier 3 market, or it’s classified as being a small or micro data center. But, in fact, the Edge can really be a data center of any size, located everywhere and anywhere businesses and communities need to be connected to the wider world of communications, content, and cloud-based services.
EdgeConnex, as its name implies, specializes in connecting second-tier markets through edge computing.
