GIGABYTE’s “E-Series edge servers” are the fruition of GIGABYTE’s long history of providing 5G and edge computing solutions for key clients. The fist model of edge server was applied by NVIDIA to develop NVIDIA Aerial SDK, an framework for building 5G applications. In addition, GIGABYTE’s edge server solutions also played important roles in VR concerts hosted by Taipei Music Center and assisted New Taipei City Police Department to maintain public order during huge outdoor events.

 

 

The E-Series Edge Servers are the fruition of GIGABYTE’s long years of dedication to the mobile communications industry and the evolving 5G ecosystem. Since the first model of edge server, E251-U70, was first launched in September 2020, the product line has grown to support different processors and applications, including the E162-220 with Intel® Xeon® Scalable Processors, the E152-ZE0 with AMD EPYC™, and the E252-P30 powered by a single-socket Ampere® Altra® Processor based on the Arm architecture.

What are the Attributes of an Ideal Edge Server in the 5G Era?
At its core, an edge server is a solution designed to combine edge computing network architecture with 5th Generation mobile cellular networks, commonly known as 5G. 5G provides greater bandwidth and higher speeds of up to 10 Gbit/s—that is ten times faster than current 4G networks. Edge computing is a way to position computation as close to the end user as possible, further reducing latency and bandwidth consumption. The upshot is that mobile devices can now connect to data centers just as easily as if there were a physical cable between them.

The implications are groundbreaking. Ultra-high-definition video streaming and cloud gaming are just the tip of the iceberg. Radical innovations such as autonomous vehicles may soon become a fact of life, all thanks to 5G communications and edge computing solutions.

The International Telecommunication Union Radiocommunication Sector (ITU-R) defines the three main application areas for 5G communications as Enhanced Mobile Broadband (eMBB), Massive Machine Type Communications (mMTC), and Ultra Reliable Low Latency Communications (URLLC). In layperson’s terms, eMBB refers to the massively expanded bandwidth that will enable 4K or even 8K video streaming, as well as truly immersive virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR); mMTC stands for high connection density supporting an enormous number of devices (such as sensors on self-driving cars) that transmit small data packets sporadically; and URLLC offers a target latency of 1 millisecond and 99.999% reliability, which is critical for autonomous vehicles to respond to road conditions, to give one example. An ideal edge computing solution in the 5G era would need to be compatible with these three application areas.

In practice, GIGABYTE E-Series Edge Servers rise to the challenge by meeting multiple requirements. First and foremost, their processors offer superb computing power and contain a high number of cores to service multiple devices simultaneously. Second, an edge server can handle a diverse range of tasks, which is why it features numerous expansion slots to support GPU cards (which are ideal for parallel computing) or networking cards. This provides a degree of flexibility and multifunctionality for the edge server, which may be required to carry out a plethora of tasks in a wide gamut of locations.《Glossary: What is Parallel Computing?

The counterweight to these performance requirements is the matter of availability and cost-efficiency. The edge server must be able to physically fit in all kinds of tight spaces, such as in an office cabinet or at the base of a cellular site. It should offer good power usage effectiveness because the power supply may be limited or expensive. Since air conditioning may not be accessible, temperature control should also be considered. Also, the edge server should be easy to maintain and repair to ensure stable operations. On top of all these requirements, edge servers must also offer competitive CAPEX and OPEX, since a lot of such servers will be required to support the 5G communications infrastructure.

GIGABYTE was able to achieve such a succinct and in-depth understanding of how to build ideal edge servers for the 5G era because it has provided edge computing solutions for clients in different industries for many years. Two success cases pivotal to the creation of E-Series Edge Servers are the VR concert viewing system in the Taipei Music Center, which is a shining example of a micro data center that supports edge computing; and the “Private Cell Mobile Command Vehicle” deployed by ITRI and New Taipei City Police at the height of the Pokémon GO craze in Taiwan, which is exemplary of a 5G private cellular network analogue that supports computing, storage, and networking in a compact server system.
