The Artificial Intelligence of Things (AIoT) is transforming businesses across industries becoming one of the main drivers of the fourth industrial revolution. Corporations are looking forward to Industry 4.0 and are increasingly integrating intelligence into their operations, building smart factories, grids, hospitals, stadiums, cities, and in general, smart enterprises. At the core of the smart organization, the so-called Industrial IoT (IIoT) creates an autonomous network of intelligent sensors and machines that collaborate to improve services and productivity without the need of human intervention.

The realization of IIoT and its AIoT vision relies by definition on the underlying network. Advantech provides key foundational building blocks for operators and enterprises to create edge, access and private network solutions based on 5G New Radio (5G NR) that support increasing number of mission-critical, intelligent, connected devices. Advantech 5G platforms have been specifically designed for the industrial and telecom edge and are supported by a vibrant software ecosystem, streamlining the deployment of next generation IIoT communication services that enable the smart enterprise of the future.


Industrial IoT Opportunities and Challenges

Increasingly smart organizations require reliable communication services that guarantee data security, real-time operations, massive device connectivity and broadband speeds

 Enabling the 5G Intelligent Edge

The development of an agile wireless network that supports a massive number of connected devices, low latencies, broadband speeds, network slicing, and edge intelligence is the result of a number of technologies that form the 5G vision. AI enabled 5G edge computing solutions provided as a service by operators or deployed onsite by the enterprise leverage these technologies to meet IIoT communication needs.

For Operators

Advantech SKY-8000 Series of 5G Edge Servers for the new Open RAN provides a wide choice of white-box hardware platforms that scale from pole-mount, extended operating temperature range configurations all the way up to high-performance designs that can be deployed as micro data centers at the edge or in virtual Central Offices. 

The SKY-8000 range can be deployed to run baseband vDU functions, as well as consolidate vCU functions or MEC services. These short-depth servers have been designed for high-density PCIe card payload to integrate vRAN acceleration, I/O and time synchronization technologies while optimizing performance per watt at the telecom edge.
