Industry Sector

HealthCare, Education

Business driver

With corona virus spreading worldwide, 62% Rural kids are missing their classes since the Pandemic started, due to no or very low internet bandwidth. While teachers and students are predominantly from surrounding areas, there is no need for the video feeds to be processed 100s or 1000s of miles away from the rural network. Processing at the edge will allow localized educational platform to operate with low internet bandwidth.
Patients and doctors need very high definition video to engage with real impact. 5G provides low latency/high bandwidth opportunity but unless the processing is done at the edge, near to where the doctor and patient is, the opportunity can't be utilized to improve doctor-patient engagements.

Business use cases

  1.  Video Processing : Enhance Engagement Quality, Augment Video with information, Create Virtual environment, Transcribe engagements
  2.  Telehealth : Appointment Scheduling, Payment Processing, Electronic Health Records
  3.  Gamification : Reinforce Corrective Behavior, Track Progress, Generate Trends
  4.  Learning Management System : AI Teacher Assist, Early Progress Prediction

Business Cost - Initial Build Cost Target Objective

Host Video applications, Health Application, LMS on the edge, control plane on the cloud, and media plane close to customer site such as MEC servers in telco central offices.

We choose X86 server to deploy the MEC platform to reduce the cost.

•2 X86 Nodes ( The PowerEdge XE2420 provides a short-depth, dense, Dual-socket, 2U server)

•Kubernetes v 1.17 (Open Source)

•GPU (NVIDIA V100/s or NVIDIA RTX6000) for AR/VR and AI 

Business Cost – Target Operational Objective

It more like a cloud platform, but it's specific for the edge site.  

•It needs Helm and Ansible for the automation and management tools to keep operational cost lower

•Maintain a mixed edge platform including x86 and ARM. 

•Kubernetes v1.17 

•Android, IOS 

•GPU ( NVIDIA V100/s or NVIDIA RTX6000)

•Both ARM and X86 can support it.

Security need

Security mechanisms that can be implemented at each layer of abstraction.
