5G & Edge Computing Enable High-Speed, Low-Latency Internet of Things (IoT)

(Auszug aus der Pressemitteilung)

The November 2020 edition of the Ericsson Mobility Report shows that 5G subscriptions are forecast to reach 3.5 billion globally by the end of 2026. As 5G coverage continues to expand, we can predict that all the new data generated by mobile devices, such as 4K videos and data from IoT devices used in smart cities and factories, will take up a lot of bandwidth. Conventionally, cloud computing means the data has to be processed by data centers before it is transmitted back to mobile devices. Needless to say, this exchange of data will delay response time, which in turn will negate the advantages of 5G communication.


In order to remedy this problem, GIGABYTE has announced the E-Series of Edge Server solutions, designed specifically for edge computing. Edge servers extend the processing power of data centers to the outer fringes of the internet – closer to the source of new data. Edge servers can process high-resolution images and other forms of data; they can also reduce latency and provide real-time, on-demand computing services. Internet users and providers alike can benefit from innovations in edge computing.

GIGABYTE’s 5G MEC (Multi-access Edge Computing) solutions are ideal for the era of 5G communication. Examples include Enhanced Mobile Broadband (eMBB) technology, which enables high bandwidth and low latency media streaming; Ultra-Reliable and Low Latency Communications (URLLC) technology, which can support the deployment of autonomous vehicles; and Massive Machine-Type Communications (mMTC) technology, which helps to construct the IoT used in smart cities. These solutions empower enterprises to discover new, useful applications for 5G and edge computing technology.
