For consumers, the following use cases could benefit from edge computing:
Gaming: both hard-core multiplayer gaming and the growing area of cloud gaming would benefit from edge by reducing lag for the end-gamer.
AR/VR experience: to be able to provide rich experiences using augmented reality (on smart phones, headsets or digital signage), edge will be critical to reduce latency and optimise the end-user experience.
Healthcare: analysing data from IoT devices at the edge to reduce the amount of data transmitted over the network and avoid overloading central servers with raw data.
Media/CDN: optimising video streaming by caching media even closer to the end-user.
