An edge system is a computing system that is located at the “edge” of a network, close to the source of the data. Edge systems are built to process, analyze, and act on data in real-time, without transmitting all of the data to a centralized processing system. Edge systems are used in various applications, including the Internet of Things (IoT), where devices at the edge of the network generate and collect large amounts of data. By processing this data at the edge, edge systems can reduce the amount of data that needs to be transmitted to centralized systems, reducing latency, improving response times, and reducing the demands on centralized computing resources.

Edge systems may include a range of technologies and devices, including sensors, gateways, embedded computers, and smart devices. They may be powered by various processors and platforms, ranging from microcontrollers and single-board computers to powerful servers and cloud computing platforms. By processing data at the edge, edge systems can help organizations to make decisions in real-time, to respond quickly to changing conditions, and to provide a more responsive and effective service to their customers.
