As the number of internet-connected devices increases exponentially, local Edge processing is becoming critical to managing the vast amounts of data being generated and supporting innovative, targeted applications. Supermicro is leveraging advanced product design to provide flexible low-power, ultra-reliable computing, and partnering with forward-thinking software platform partners to build complete solutions for an array of vertical markets, including Industry 4.0, Intelligent Retail, Smart Cities, and more.
Intelligent Retail Edge
Retailers and the hospitality industry have the opportunity to combine their physical presence with innovative technologies to create unique and valuable customer experiences, while they leverage new systems to optimize inventory and operations.
Edge computing capabilities including artificial intelligence, machine learning, virtual and augmented reality, and local analytics will make these new services happen. Supermicro has forged partnerships with retail IoT experts to bring complete, compelling solutions to market.
The increase of factory automation yields opportunities to drive new levels of efficiency. Process monitoring, continuous diagnostics, supply tracking, and robust security will keep production lines humming and intelligent systems will ensure quality control. Workers will utilize augmented and virtual reality to install, maintain and upgrade equipment.
All of these applications require on-premises, real-time processing, via compute engines and AI inference. Factory environments can be challenging for these systems, and Supermicro provides servers in a range of sizes to meet the specific needs of each location, including ruggedized, fanless boxes. Although these servers can deliver the needed computing power to the right places, software must be deployed and managed remotely, via the cloud. Supermicro’s software platform partners leverage their expertise in Edge computing and container technologies to create optimized solutions for the newest industrial revolution.
Smart Cities, Places, and Venues
Smart Cities are technologically modern urban areas that use advanced surveillance systems to collect specific data and use that data to manage assets and resources, provide services efficiently, and improve the operation of the city as a whole. Audio, video, and other data are collected from multiple sources, including citizens, devices, buildings, and camera assets. The smart city concept focuses on using data and AI to improve QoE for citizens, better traffic analysis and management, increased security, 1st responder responsiveness, and more. New forms of connectivity help optimize the efficiency of city operations and services and connect to citizens.
Supermicro Edge integrates with core networks using WiFi 6, wireless LTE, and 5G, creating a common AI platform for inferencing. Supermicro has joined with several ISV and silicon partners to efficiently incorporate Edge compute capabilities such as audio and visual detection and interpretation, Artificial Intelligence, Augmented Reality, and training.
