Smart Edge Data Centres
SmartEDge DC,s modular distributive sub millisecond Ultra Low Latency Edge Data Centre model proposes to be the Edge Gateway that will enable artificial intelligence, 5G, driverless cars , robotics , virtual reality , augmented reality and the Internet of Things to reach the parts that the present data centre and internet infra-structure cannot reach.
For years the Telecoms industry has talked about “The Last Mile “ The final connection with the consumer. This became more of a problem with the advent of the Internet with slow download speeds and virtually no upload speeds. Even today, the infra-structure installed and operated by Open Reach over copper will only achieve upload speeds of 1.2 mbs Optical Fibre to the building and 4G mobile connectivity has solved this bandwidth problem to a degree, but the “ Internet of Things “ will require the Processing of data and analytics to be within “ The First Mile “ of the data generated by the consumer , most of this data will not be human-generated but machine-generated.
The main applications said to be potentially best served by the “edge” are artificial intelligence, 5G, driverless cars, robotics, virtual reality, augmented reality and the things as yet not invented that will become part of the evolution of the Internet of Things, How do we achieve the infrastructure to supply the as yet invented Simple, supply a place with both power and fibre connectivity to locate it once it is invented.
SmartEdge DC has identified over 30,000 suitable sites within the UK to locate an “Ultra-Low Latency Sub-Millisecond Edge micro data centre “ infrastructure where the waste heat capture technology will benefit the public through local communities. At present, SmartEdge DC has over 1000 sites available and targeting 7000 sites over the next 5 years that cover the top 100 Towns and Cities with populations exceeding 100,000. (See interactive Map )
We estimate that eventually, the UK will require in excess of 50,000 Ultra-Low latency Edge DC’s just to serve the processing and analytics of the data generated by driverless cars, to achieve total UK coverage.
