Deutsche Telekom subsidiary T-Systems recently unveiled EdgAIR, an Edge Computing platform that delivers low latency for IoT applications at enterprise facilities. Edge Computing brings computation and data storage closer to the location where the data is generated in order to reduce latency, maintain network reliability, save bandwidth and comply with data security regulations. This enables companies to use innovative, real-time applications in production, logistics and retail, and includes automated, guided vehicles and augmented and full virtual reality.
Supermicro’s wide range of embedded and storage solution technologies appealed to the EdgAIR development team for a number of reasons: the Intel® Xeon® D Edge-based architectures with the Intel® FPGA Programmable Acceleration Card N3000 are able to manage the heavy workloads that T-Systems requires to deliver low-latency applications, powerful processing, reliability in the field, and a highly-responsive support team.
This session will present a high-level overview of EdgAIR and T-Systems’ criteria for hardware partner selection, and how the project is going, followed by a live panel discussion including participants in this innovative effort.
