Multi-access Edge Computing | 多接取邊緣運算架構

  • 多接取邊緣運算架構是什麼?
    多接取邊緣運算架構(Multi-access Edge Computing)或稱行動邊緣運算(Mobile Edge Computing),是一種新型態的網路服務架構,在行動網路的邊緣,提供雲端運算能力和 IT 服務環境。MEC 技術旨在直接由基地台取得數據資料,減少核心網路的負擔,在本地端進行高解析度的影像處理和數據發送,不需等待遠端伺服器回應,因而降低延遲,能夠靈活、快速地提供新的應用與服務,讓使用者獲得較好的體驗。

  • 為何需要?
    隨著智慧型手機普及,串流影音、通訊軟體等網路服務的成長,行動網路的流量持續增長;MEC 實現邊緣運算的理念,讓電影、電玩遊戲、VR / AR應用程式和其他多媒體內容等,不用放置在遠端的資料中心,而是在本地邊緣雲,讓資料更接近使用者,因此減少延遲、也降低對頻寬要求。例如,熱門的影片內容可以在無線基地台保存,減少資料因網路傳遞、處理而產生的延遲和成本,還能縮短下載時間。

    此外,MEC伺服器還可運用在實現智能影像分析,即時擷取影像、分析影像內容,不需將資料傳輸回資料中心,加快檢驗與反應時間,更能自動進行人工智慧判讀,如尋找被遺棄的袋子、對被通緝或失蹤者等的臉部識別等應用。

  • 技嘉的特色
    技嘉與工研院(工業技術研究院,ITRI)合作,共同開發實施 MEC所需的硬體和軟體架構。

    身為台灣5G領航隊成員之一,技嘉在2020年6月即將營運的台北流行音樂中心,參與了沉浸式360度虛擬演唱會的場域建置,領航隊運用技嘉伺服器部署邊緣運算平台,在本地端進行高速、大量資料處理,提供即時的運算回饋,達成同步呈現360度虛擬演唱會的現場體驗。

    GIGABYTE 5G and Edge Solutions at MWC 2021: The Servers of Choice for Taipei Music Center, ITRI and New Taipei Police, NVIDIA Aerial SDK
    GIGABYTE’s E-Series Edge Servers are the highlight of MWC Barcelona 2021. This product line is the fruition of GIGABYTE’s long history of providing 5G and edge computing solutions for key clients, including Taipei Music Center, which wanted to stage VR concerts, and ITRI and New Taipei Police, which needed to maintain order during the Pokémon GO craze. The E251-U70, the first model in the E-Series, exemplifies industry know-how and design philosophy distilled from previous success cases. It has been chosen by NVIDIA to be part of its Aerial Developer Kit.

    Large scale events can lead to a sudden surge in crowds, creating cellular network congestion. Even if the user capacity of a cell tower user is upgraded, the network operator is still unable to cope with an abrupt increase in demand. In 2019 Industrial Technology Research Institute (ITRI) therefore designed and built a “Private Cell Mobile Command Vehicle”, which can deploy a pre-5G private cellular network to avoid the problem of commercial network traffic jams. The vehicle provides the New Taipei City Police Department with smooth, uninterrupted cellular network service, allowing the police staff to remotely monitor real time footage of large scale events and deploy police resources where needed, increasing the efficiency of providing event security and safety. GIGABYTE’s H-Series High Density Servers are also helping to support ITRI’s “Private Cell Mobile Command Vehicle” by reducing the complexity of back-end infrastructure – each server combines computing, storage and networking into a single system, allowing for resources to be centralized and shared across different applications. The servers also optimize the use of time and manpower by combining and centralizing applications to simplify management procedures.
