The promise of fifth generation 5G wireless networks has been dangled in front of businesses for years. Large IT vendors and mobile carriers have been promising next-generation solutions that are poised to enable dozens of new use cases that will transform the enterprise. Finally, at the end ofsome of the power of 5G began to unlock as carriers began offering service in select markets. From a practical perspective, the benefits of 5G can be boiled down to a simple statement. In best case scenarios this can mean gigabit download speeds, but more typically the hope is for a few hundred megabits per second. Whatever the case, businesses are on the verge of being able to not only accomplish mission critical tasks more quickly, but there is also an entire world of new opportunities that can be leveraged by organizations that are forward thinking enough to take advantage of them. One of these opportunities is not just edge computing, but specifically, outdoor edge computing. In use cases like military, oil and gas exploration and others, there may either be no public network to connect to or there is a clear need for increased security. Under these circumstances, many more organizations can benefit from capabilities of 5G. In either case, the rules surrounding how 5G networks are put together are a little different from existing infrastructure is supported. For this reason, new hardware solutions have to be developed to address these changing needs. One of the key reasons 5G is faster than current networks is due to reduced latency in the round trip path data takes from the service provider, to the device, and back to the service provider again. To enable this lower latency, existing tower infrastructure needs to be modernized. Because 5G often uses higher frequency bands, there is a shorter transmission distance capability, which translates into a need for more 5G antenna sites. At the same time 5G is hitting the market, carriers are also going through a major overhaul in their infrastructures. This change is highlighted by the broad adoption of virtualization and containers to allow for a more distributed and adaptable network. Supermicro has recently released a unique solution to this problem, an all new Pole Server. Expansion capability takes the form of three PCIe slots and support for a range of storage formats and form factors, including SSDs in both M. The servers are configurable and ready to stand up to the harsh environments that 5G antennas experience as they rarely have any shelter from the elements. While the overall Pole Server solution is new, the units are based on existing Supermicro edge server building blocks, like the popular E This support gives this family of edge servers the ability to excel in servicing emerging use cases like real-time edge AI inferencing. Of course the hardware is also well-suited for more traditional tasks like supporting content delivery networks or acting as a repository for surveillance video. Of course these towers need to be able to connect back to the core data centers as well, where the 5G opportunity is entirely different. Within the datacenter, carriers need solutions to address flexibility in storage and network. Much of this is happening at the same time as virtualization is penetrating the core data centers of carriers, in favor of proprietary solutions. In these cases, Supermicro is well positioned with their existing enterprise solutions like the SuperBlade and BigTwin platforms. The SuperBlade has a long history of adoption in the enterprise datacenter, offering an extremely dense compute platform. This 5G portfolio is clearly punctuated by the brand new Pole Server. With the Pole Server Supermicro is flexing their engineering muscles by delivering a clear vision for what outdoor edge computing can be. While edge computing needs for 5G are widely discussed by the industry, Supermicro has put a stake in the ground with this effort, or perhaps more aptly, a server on an antenna in the ground. Either way, Supermicro is taking a commanding leadership position in the outdoor edge use case with this solution. This is vitally important as carriers migrate away from proprietary solutions, to standards-based solutions. As carriers and those in need of a private 5G network look for a partner for this journey, Supermicro stands out by delivering innovative solutions for these emerging needs. Supermicro Outdoor Edge.

The portfolio provides three fundamental design choices for customers. The new servers are also more power efficient than the traditional systems and have hot-plug capability for improved serviceability and availability. S SSDs. L server. Petascale E1. All-Flash NVMe. Contact us. All-flash NVMe storage enclosures bring additional flexibility and capacity expansion to enable advanced deployment scenarios. Optimized for mission-critical, enterprise-level storage applications, Supermicro's innovative Super SBB Storage Bridge Bay features a fully redundant, fault-tolerant "Cluster-in-a-box" system. With heartbeat and data connection between the redundant nodes via the midplane, if one node fails, the standby node takes over and gain access to all drives both controllers can also work as active-active modeand keeps the system up and running. Storage management software is the key to enable this feature, which is available from other partners, please contact your Supermicro sales representative for more information. Optimized for:.
