Petaflops for 5G MEC (Mobile Edge Cloud / Multi-access Edge Computing)
The introduction of 5G is rapidly introducing new requirements for high performance GPU-enabled technology.
The low-latency (projected as low as 1ms) and high bandwidth (10Gbps with pathway to 100Gbps) available with 5G is making more possible.
Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality and Cross Reality (XR) solutions
This could include Rendering complex graphics or real time lighting and backgrounds remotely during visualisation or game play.
MEC servers will provide local object tracking and local AR content caching to overlay augmented reality content onto objects viewed on a cellular device camera.
Augmented reality applications include an overlay of business names and street names and numbers on video from your phone as you walk down a street.
You could also have augmented reality in museums where information is available in summary and in more detail as you walk past an exhibit.
Many of these are achievable now but the lower latency and higher bandwidth means that this technology can now develop to provide rich video and 3D images integrated into your reality.
|MEC server can be used to implement applications such as Intelligent Video Analytics – video steams can be analysed in real time without the need to be transmitted back to a central data centre.|
This accelerates detection and reduces response times and can be set to trigger events automatically (e.g. abandoned bags, facial recognition of wanted or missing persons etc.)
