Multi-Access Edge Computing Accelerates the Services Innovation
The ZTE Common Edge MEC (Multi-Access Edge Computing) solution includes a MEP capability exposure platform, a lightweight edge cloud, a full range of edge-oriented servers, and edge acceleration.
The ZTE Common Edge MECsolution focuses on 4C:
1. Capability of edge computing : The exposure platform for the joint construction of an ecosystem
Edge ComputingNetwork capability exposing: More than 100 kinds of edge network information and capabilities of ZTE edge computing solution such as LBS (high-precision location service), RNIS (Radio network information service), TCPO (TCP optimization service) and VO (video optimization service) are exposed to the external, accelerating service innovation.
Edge Computing Application enabling: ZTE edge computing solution provides video identification services, low latency video services, and IoT equipment management services, and supports integrating third party services.
2. Connection of edge computig : Multiple models and fixed/mobile convergence
Oriented to full connection: ZTE edge computing solution integrates access of wireless network and fixed network, supporting multiple systems such as 4G/5G/Wi-Fi.
3. Cloud of edge computing : Cloudified deployment and unified O&M
Through in-depth integration of OpenStack and Kubernetes, ZTE edge computing solution provides operators with a unified edge cloud view, and a mature resource management system involving unified computing, unified network, unified storage and unified security, improving management efficiency and resource utilization.
Precise management components are jointly deployed with compute nodes. Lightweight edge cloud can save management resources by 60%.
The AI-based unified cloud management platform provides unified management of central DCs and edge clouds to implement non-attendance and automatic O&M of edge cloud.
4. Compute of edge computing : Dedicated hardware
Embedded MEC in BBU: Provides computing, storage and network resources on the NR BBU, and constructs NR-level edge computing platform for "one-hop through".
Embedded MEC in OLT: Constructs the edge computing platform based on the in-built OLT blade, requiring no extra space, to solve problems of insufficient space, power supply and AC cooling for the comprehensive access equipment room.
Integrated MEC in Cabinet: Completes software and hardware pre-integration in the factory for out-of-the-box and unmanned O&M. It is advantaged in flexible location selection, rapid deployment, and simple O&M.
Cloudified MEC in COTS: Uses cloud resource pool based on COTS to deploy edge computing platform.
Exposing the IaaS capability Exposing over 100 network capabilities Enabling services
Full Distribution of Computing
Distributed cloud platform MEC-oriented server Edge acceleration hardware
According to user needs, software and hardware of ZTE Common Edge MEC solution have been pre-integrated. It can be used out of the box with a few configuration imported. This greatly reduces the deployment difficulty and makes delivery quicker.
Multi-Access Edge Computing
ZTE Common Edge MEC solution provides a unified portal for tenants, allowing tenants to flexibly manage their applications and secure isolation between tenants. Each tenant can flexibly upload its own application image and design visual blueprints based on templates to enable applications to be provisioned in minutes.
ZTE Common Edge MEC solution provides unified management to achieve a consistent management experience. Operators can centrally manage a large number of decentralized MEC resources, realize unattended O&M at the edge, and significantly reduce O&M costs.
