What is Edge Computing? Definition and Cases Explained.
Edge Computing: computing performed physically or logically as close as possible to where data is created and commands are executed. Offering excellent advantages in latency reduction for applications relying on real-time decision making.
It Was Acceptable in the 80s – the First Kind of Edge Computing
The Re-Centralization of Computing in the Cloud
The history of centralized vs distributed computing.
Too Much Data, Not Enough Time – Bringing Back Decentralization
Edge computing is adopted for computing situations where any delay is not acceptable.
When Every Millisecond Counts
Edge computing is ideal for facial recognition systems.
Security and Privacy at the Edge
Edge computing is ideal where data privacy is paramount, such as for smart home devices.

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.
GIGABYT will illustrate the key functions and applications that made 5G a highly anticipated technology evolution, and the pivotal role MEC (Multi-access Edge Computing) plays in bringing 5G into our lives. Let’s take a digital tour to experience the splendid 5G future, enabled by GIGABYTE’s edge computing solutions!
Recently, 5G communications technology has been frequently talked about in relation to various major industries – it even seems that in order to keep up with technology trends, everything should be connected with 5G! When discussing 5G however, key features such as high bandwidth, low latency and high connection density must definitely be mentioned. As the coming of 5G will revolutionize our future lives, let’s understand more clearly about 5G directly from some real-world examples! And what key role does GIGABYTE play in this next generation communications technology?
