Is modularity the mainstream of edge data centers in the 5G era?

The world is moving from 4G era to 5G era. environmental protection

With the rapid development of the new generation of mobile network communication technology, the application and breakthroughs of 5G in various industries are frequently seen in newspapers, such as finance, tourism, manufacturing, medical treatment and so on. Taking 5G telemedicine as an example, these application scenarios need not only very low and stable network delay, but also massive, heterogeneous and diverse data access. Therefore, the traditional centralized computing processing mode will face difficult bottlenecks and pressures. Edge computing multiplies the potential and becomes a new solution in these application scenarios.

Like cloud computing, edge computing ultimately needs the support of infrastructure level to achieve real promotion and application through data centers. In order to promote edge computing in the future, it is necessary to build a service platform near the edge of the network, provide storage, computing, network and other resources, and sink some key service applications to the edge of the access network in order to reduce the bandwidth and delay loss caused by network transmission and multi-level forwarding.

Different from the existing centralized cloud data center, this edge data center is located between the client and the cloud data center, providing a miniaturized, distributed and user-friendly data center environment.

(1) Ultra-low delay. Massive data no longer need to be uploaded to the cloud for processing, greatly reducing network latency, making feedback faster, but also improving the user experience, reducing the network congestion in other parts of the possible.

(2) High bandwidth. Because the edge data center is close to the information source, simple data processing can be carried out locally without uploading all data to the cloud, which reduces the transmission pressure of the core network, reduces network congestion and greatly increases the network transmission rate.

(3) High real-time computing capability. Edge data center is the first entrance of data. It can undertake environmental protection massive, heterogeneous and diverse data access. It is responsible for simple business processing. It should have the ability of real-time analysis and processing of massive access data.

(4) High safety and reliability. After receiving the data, the edge data center can encrypt the data and then transmit it, which improves the security of the data. The reliability of edge data center processing and transmission is very important for real-time business, and has direct and obvious impact on user experience.

On the one hand, the edge data center is of great benefit to the landing of 5G application scenarios. On the other hand, at the deployment level, the influence factors of the edge data center are not less than those of the traditional cloud data center.

Edge data center is close to users and is the first entrance to data. It is possible to deploy in residential areas, roofs, warehouses, wireless base stations or other complex and harsh environments. Enterprises and other organizations have a large number of edge data centers, which can not be separated. They need unified management, dynamic scheduling and rapid deployment. Edge data center is small in scale and bad in environment, but it involves real-time business and a large number of user privacy data, so business interruption risk is high and security level is high. Based on the above factors, some industries that have deployed edge data centers try to use modular data centers as their edge data center construction mode.

First, the equipment for the unified manufacturers, highly compatible. The integration of the four subsystems can achieve the overall delivery, simple construction, small area, reduce rent environmental protection and other costs.

Secondly, prefabricated modules are used to reduce the workload of field projects. The construction time is short, it can be simply replicated, and a large number of deployments can be realized quickly.

Thirdly, it is flexible to support IT change, flexible to configure, and strong adaptability to scenarios.

4. Intelligent operation and maintenance, centralized management, unified monitoring, real-time reporting of operation status, saving labor costs, saving maintenance manpower, and improving safety and fault resolution efficiency.

Thanks to the rise of 5G and edge computing, new edge data centers will become a trend in the future, which can solve many industry dilemmas. Modular data centers will undoubtedly become one of the trends of future edge data centers because of their convenience, efficiency, low cost and high reliability.
