Mobile Edge Computing

  • What is it?
    Mobile Edge Computing (MEC), or Multi-access Edge Computing, is a network architecture that enables cloud computing capabilities and an IT service environment at the edge of a cellular network. MEC technology is designed to be implemented at cellular base stations or other edge nodes, and enables flexible and rapid deployment of new applications and services for customers. MEC is ideal to be used for the next generation of 5G cellular networks.

  • Why you need it? Who needs it?
    MEC implements the ethos of Edge Computing for cellular phone networks, allowing content such as movies, video games, VR / AR applications and other multimedia content to be placed closer to the user at the periphery of the network, reducing latency and bandwidth requirements. For example, popular video content can be saved at the cellular base station, reducing network backhaul and transport requirements and improving loading times.

    In addition, a MEC server can be used to implement applications such as Intelligent Video Analytics – video steams can be analyzed in real time without the need to be transmitted back to a central data center, accelerating detection and response times and trigger events automatically (e.g. abandoned bags, facial recognition of wanted or missing persons etc.), or for Augmented Reality – the MEC server will provide local object tracking and local AR content caching to overlay augmented reality content onto objects viewed on a cellular device camera.

  • How is GIGABYTE helpful?
    GIGABYTE has partnered with ITRI (Industrial Technology Research Institute), working together in developing the hardware and software architecture required to implement MEC. A demonstration of this architecture was showcased at MWC 2019 (Mobile World Conference) in Barcelona and will be implemented as part of a VR concert viewing system in the new Taipei Center for Popular Music.

    新一代通訊商機:3項高潛力 5G應用實例

    5G通訊技術近期不斷地在各大產業間被談論著,似乎所有事物都要與5G連結上,才算跟上科技潮流! 談到5G技術必定會提到大頻寬、低延遲、大連結等特性。而5G的到來能改變未來生活的樣貌,我們直接從生活實例中更明確地了解什麼是5G吧! 而技嘉在5G新世代通訊中扮演什麼關鍵角色呢?

    5G元年 不能不知道的關鍵概念

    5G通訊技術是近來討論相當熱烈的話題,由於訊號傳輸速度更快、低延遲性還有大連結等特性,讓人們開始能發展包括工業4.0、自駕車、智慧城市等等應用,不再侷限於通訊;到底什麼是5G,它與 4G 有什麼不同?在技術上有何創新、又會對未來生活帶來多大的變化?

    適合5G應用的伺服器並不是只有頻寬更大這麼簡單

    行動網路畢竟只是「道路」,路變寬,車子也要快,不是單純佈署5G網路就可以了,提供服務的伺服器需要「靠的更近」。

    啟動5G解決方案 技嘉創造智慧生活圈

    智能全聯網的5G時代,與眾多合作夥伴提供企業完整配套與解決方案,打造因應未來的垂直市場整合,應用於多樣場域。
