Sensors at the Edge: Seeing the Big Picture While Feeling and Hearing It Too

On Demand Until June 11, 2021

Duration:60 minutes

Credits: 1 AIA LU/Elective, 0.1 IACET CEU*; 1PDH


With the number of edge sites on the rise, it’s critical for you to know what’s going on in the network at any given moment. However, it’s likely there are sites you have never visited. So, if you don’t know exactly what a site looks like, what security measures are in place, or even where it is located, how can you have true visibility into the physical environment? The answer is by having good sensors in place. Sensors act as surrogates for our senses and can, therefore, gather information to provide visibility. In this webinar, we will discuss the advantages of sensors, the main types that are available, and how to integrate them into a holistic solution to meet your needs.

Learning Objectives:
  • Identify the benefits of sensing at the edge.
  • List the main types of sensors.
  • Describe how sensors can work together.
  • Explain the differences between wired and wireless sensors.
