My question about edge computing was closed as opinion-based.
Here is the relevant help page:
Opinion-based - Discussions focused on diverse opinions can be great, but they just don't fit our format well.
This question is likely to be answered with opinions rather than facts and citations. It should be updated so it will lead to fact-based answers.
It’s often possible to rewrite opinion-based questions to focus on a more fact-based line of questioning. If you see a way to do this, consider editing the question.
I don't see, how this applies to my question. I am not asking for personal opinions, I am interested in purely factual information about the real world implementation details of this approach to internet infrastructure.
If my question is actually opinion-based, please explain how so.
If it is not, I would like to know if the question can be reopened.
