Outdoor Edge Systems

Servers Built for Extreme Conditions

An outdoor server edge system refers to a specialized computing infrastructure designed to be deployed outside traditional data center environments, directly at or near the location where data is generated or used. These systems are built to withstand various environmental conditions such as extreme temperatures, moisture, dust, and vibrations, making them suitable for use in a wide range of outdoor and harsh environments.

Outdoor Edge Servers Powering Industries Everywhere

Outdoor server edge systems are applicable in numerous industries and scenarios, including:

  • Smart Cities: Enhance traffic management and public safety through real-time data processing at the source.
  • Telecommunications: Support 5G infrastructure deployment with localized data processing and reduced latency.
  • Energy Sector: Enable monitoring and control of remote assets, improving operational efficiency and response times.
  • Agriculture: Facilitate precision farming techniques by analyzing data on-site, optimizing resources and crop yields.
  • Industrial IoT: Power real-time monitoring and predictive maintenance in manufacturing, reducing downtime and increasing productivity.
  • Environmental Monitoring: Collect and analyze environmental data in real-time for better resource management and disaster response.
  • Public Services: Improve efficiency in public transportation systems through immediate data analysis and optimization.
  • Retail and Hospitality: Enhance customer experience with immediate data insights for service personalization and operational efficiency.

Outdoor Edge Systems Key Characteristics

  • Durability: They are housed in rugged enclosures that protect the internal components from the elements and potential physical damage.
  • Compactness: These systems are often designed to be compact and efficient, taking up minimal space while providing the necessary computing power.
  • Connectivity: Equipped with advanced networking capabilities, they can connect to various devices and sensors, enabling real-time data processing and decision-making at the edge of the network.
  • Energy Efficiency: To accommodate the constraints of outdoor deployment, these systems are typically energy-efficient, possibly incorporating renewable energy sources like solar panels.
  • Low Latency: By processing data locally, they reduce the need to send data back to a central data center for processing, resulting in lower latency and quicker response times for critical applications.

Outdoor Edge Allicance Enable 5G &
WiFi 6 Connectivity for AI Smart City Applications

Intelligent Transportation System, and smart traffic management systems are an indispensable component in developing Smart Cities. In any city, mobility is a key concern, and not just limited to traffic congestion control and information, but also road safety and efficient infrastructure usage. These technology solutions prepare Smart Cities for coming technology evolutions, including Connected Autonomous vehicles (CAVs) and full deployment of 5G networks.

These systems are utilizing connected networks, cameras, and in-vehicle sensors such as GPS, to cloud-based data sources of weather data, street conditions, situational awareness, video surveillance for automatized data collection with precise location information. Then the connected data sources are combined with sophisticated data analysis and artificial intelligence (AI) capability for an interconnected system that can power smart decisions, in real-time.

This combination of data information and communication technologies of hardware, software and cloud solutions can greatly improve the safety, efficiency, and sustainability of transportation networks, to reduce traffic congestion, air pollution and to enhance drivers’ experiences. The possibilities are endless.
