28 February 2019, Shenzhen, China - ZTE Corporation (0763.HK / 000063.SZ), a major international provider of enterprise and consumer telecommunications technology solutions, today released its ES600S MEC server at the Mobile World Congress 2019 .
With the rise of new technologies and data-driven services, the rapid growth of data requires advanced intelligence closer to the endpoints that generate and consume data. Therefore, the data processing and analytics functions of different applications must be placed closer to the data generating and consuming endpoints, that is, at the “edge.”
Compliant with OTII standard, the ZTE ES600S server is built on the Intel® Xeon® Scalable processor, Intel® Core™ i5 processor and Intel® Stratix® 10 FPGA for edge AI Deep Learning applications. The ZTE ES600S MEC server works at the “edge” to deliver more powerful services, while reducing latency and optimizing TCO by virtue of programmable software and innovative hardware.
The ZTE encode/decode acceleration card, which adopts the Intel Stratix 10 FPGA and Intel Core i5 processor, enables the ZTE ES600S server to implement facial recognition applications at 1200 frames/s on a single AI accelerator card, resulting in a detection rate of over 98% (source: ZTE). Furthermore, real-time AI analysis of 100+ HD video streams can be implemented on a single ES600S server.
ZTE will continue to deepen its collaboration with Intel to jointly promote artificial intelligence in the field of multi-access edge computing.
