What does "5g+ edge computing" rely on to break the game

with the large-scale deployment of new infrastructure, a new round of digital transformation is coming. Business real-time, intelligence and security have been widely concerned, so the voice of edge computing that can provide computing services near the data source is rising

in recent years, edge computing has gradually become the focus of the industry. However, behind the prosperity, the commercialization and industrialization of edge computing has not yet ushered in a key breaking point. What kind of problems are we facing? What kind of sparks will be generated by the collision between 5g and edge calculation? Can it really push the whole industrial chain to the edge of breaking the situation? During the world telecommunication and information society day this year, the experts attending the 5g+ edge computing technology and industry conference conducted in-depth discussions on the above issues

edge computing is in the ascendant

the so-called edge computing refers to the use of an open platform integrating network, computing, storage and application core capabilities on the side close to the object or data source to provide services nearby

in fact, edge computing is not a new word. After several years of development, it has gradually moved from concept to implementation. However, the maturity of this technology still needs to be improved. Major, a second-class researcher of the network development division of the information and Communication Development Department of the Ministry of industry and information technology, pointed out that as an emerging technology, edge computing is not only a network edge virtualization technology platform, but also involves many aspects, such as the overall network architecture, third-party application deployment, 5g network capacity opening, management and arrangement

from the perspective of network architecture, edge computing requires the network to be further enhanced in forwarding control, session continuity, network capability opening, policy framework and billing capability, reconfigurable and expandable; In terms of network deployment and operation, the problems of edge deployment, cost control and traditional network compatibility of different systems need to be further solved. Said major

although insiders generally believe that the arrival of 5g has seen more possibilities for the commercialization of edge computing. However, tangyunbing, head of Tencent cloud edge computing technology, pointed out the problem: on the one hand, the current cost of 5g is still relatively high; On the other hand, many 5g capabilities, such as network slicing technology, are still in the process of gradual iteration. There is still some distance between the expected 5g and the 5g available now

at present, the fixture will be damaged: generally, the electro-hydraulic servo experimental machine is only equipped with the fixture for standard samples. The edge calculation is mainly developed in the local side of the industry. In the next step, there are challenges in the customer's local side automation operation and maintenance capability, as well as the convergence of industry capability and operation capability. Liujinglei, deputy director of network and it Technology Research Institute of China Mobile Research Institute, said frankly

houzhiqiang, technical director of Intel China operator business unit, said that edge computing has made great progress, and many application cases are moving towards large-scale

in fact, 5g edge computing has experienced the transformation from 0 to 1 last year. Later, more replication and promotion will be done to achieve the goal of 1 to n. Said tangyunbing

5g is the key to breaking the game

how an emerging technology can quickly realize its commercial value is the focus of the market. 5g and edge computing promote and achieve each other. 5g provides characteristic capabilities through edge computing, and edge computing further reduces delay through 5g. Tangyunbing said that 5g network architecture can sink some elements of the core and also produce edge computing

5g+ edge computing will drive an industry-oriented local ecosystem to meet the network, computing and data processing needs of enterprises and factories, and promote the digital innovation of the industry. Houzhiqiang said that this will bring about a change in the computing mode. Each node in the network will become a complete distributed computer, which not only forwards data, but also completes computing, and finally realizes the integration of network infrastructure and computing infrastructure

from the perspective of industry scenarios, autopilot is a natural 5g+ edge computing application scenario. The calculation and calculation of the car in the driving process cannot all rise to the cloud. A larger part is done in the car itself, so the edge only works in the movement process, and the calculation is widely used in the car itself. Caojiguang, deputy director of the Institute of technology and standards, China Academy of information and communications, said

first of all, automatic driving has very strict requirements on network bandwidth. If all the information encountered by the vehicle is transmitted to the cloud for processing, it needs at least more than 100mbit/s to meet the requirements. Secondly, when the vehicle is running at a high speed, the time delay must be kept between 1ms and 10ms. In addition, automatic driving will also produce a large amount of data, and the requirements for computing power are also very high. 5g+ edge computing can well meet these requirements

industrial scenario is also one of the scenarios where 5g+ edge computing is widely used. Houzhiqiang believes that the landing of 5g+ edge computing in industrial scenes is mainly concentrated in the six scenes of machine vision HD video remote field remote control equipment collaboration and information collection

houzhiqiang said: the core driving force driving edge computing is not the industry's need for a wireless network connection, but its own digital transformation needs. Therefore, when mining 5g edge computing capacity, we should start from the industry itself, find the scenarios that are strongly related to network attributes in the industry's digital needs, and then start from these scenarios to explore opportunities

according to the IDC Research Report, by 2024, the global edge computing market will reach $250.6 billion. By the end of 2022, more than 60% of China's top 1000 enterprises will deploy application scenarios based on 5g and edge computing

according to caojigong, from the perspective of industrial chain composition, the current 5g+ edge computing players can be basically divided into three categories. One is the edge computing product manufacturers in the upper reaches of the industry, such as Huawei, Lenovo, tree root Internet, Inspur, etc. they do edge platform, edge cloud server, edge gateway, edge controller, chip module and other applications based on edge computing. One is the infrastructure operators in the midstream of the industry, including telecom operators, cloud computing service providers and CDN manufacturers, who transform and upgrade the original computer rooms and deploy edge computing basic services. The other is the downstream application and terminal providers, such as Fangda intelligent control, Hikvision, Xiaomi, Gree, etc

among them, operators are not only technology innovators and standard setters, but also application developers and industry promoters

it is understood that the practice progress of China Mobile's edge computing includes three parts: a top-level design, three key platforms and business practices in 15 industry segments. Firstly, the edge computing technology system of edge cloud fusion is formed. Secondly, three important focuses have been formed, including promoting 5g N4 interface and openupf plan, building openupf all-in-one machine and open sigma general platform. The third is the industry practice in the process of diversified edge computing. Liujinglei introduced that about 60% of China Mobile's 100 leading demonstration projects have clear network + edge computing needs

China Unicom takes MEC edge cloud platform as the starting point to enable digital transformation. Chen Dan, senior director of edge computing of China Unicom Group, said. From the perspective of commercial promotion, China Unicom has built more than 200 layout nodes and more than 300 field nodes nationwide this year, and created more than 300 lighthouse projects and more than 2000 application scenarios

as an operator that started edge computing earlier, Chinatelecom has established a 5g industrial innovation alliance to empower the industrial ecology in a 1+1+1 mode. For the application of 5g+ edge computing in the industry, each industry and even each customer will have different needs in recent years. Lei Bo, director of the future network research center of Chinatelecom Network Research Institute, said

is it enough that the entrants have operators? Houzhiqiang believes that all participants in edge computing should go out of their comfort zone and enter others' fields to explore opportunities

edge computing is directly oriented to many application scenarios, and Intel is integrating edge computing into its core product line. Intel edge software center can provide rich resource allocation for innovative R & D in the fields of industrial interconnection, intelligent robot, intelligent retail, intelligent medical treatment, intelligent city and intelligent transportation

5g+ the future of edge computing has come

5g era, and edge computing has stood on the air port of takeoff. According to frost Sullivan's report, the multi access edge computing (MEC) market is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 157.4%. It is expected that by 2024, the revenue will increase from $64.1 million in 2019 to $7.23 billion. Gartner has evaluated various new technologies in the field of infrastructure and operation (I O) and believes that edge computing will become one of the ten mainstream technologies that will have the greatest impact on I O in the next five years

however, it is unknown whether 5g+ edge computing price can break the deadlock of industrialization and scale. Houzhiqiang frankly said: there will be more and more deployment nodes for edge computing, and the technical complexity will greatly increase. The maturity of the technical system and the breadth and depth of ecological construction will become important chips for edge computing to win

how to move forward and catalyze the commercial value of 5g edge computing? Houzhiqiang suggested that: first, we should reduce complexity, face scenario integration, integrate cross domain solutions, and speed up the establishment of 5g industry standards at the same time; Second, to control the cost, we can reduce the cost through the standardization of scheme hardware and software reference framework, improve the replicable and scalable platform capability, and adapt to more scenarios; Third, efficient development, such as rapid completion of solutions to the industry at the edge

major also put forward three development suggestions for the future development of edge computing. The first is to accelerate the progress of technology and product research and development, the second is to strengthen the promotion of application demonstration, and the third is to promote the establishment of a perfect standard system to promote the integration and development of industry technology and standards
