Phil Belanger, chief marketing officer at mimik, explained that the edge cloud platform provides the core authentication, authorization, and communication features that allow the distributed nodes running the edgeSDK on those edge devices to communicate with each other. That communication can be either back through the cloud platform or device-to-device, which is the part that reduces the need to access cloud resources.
The edgeSDK is deployed as a container into applications that can run on mobile-focused operating systems like Apple’s iOS and Google’s Android. Belanger said this allows a microservice to basically be run on a mobile phone.
