Traditional cloud-based media services often face latency issues, particularly when catering to bandwidth-intensive applications such as content delivery, multimedia streaming, cloud gaming, and video analytics. Conventional cloud deployments struggle to meet the stringent latency requirements, resulting in compromised user experiences and operational inefficiencies.

The integration of AI acceleration into the MEC platform at network edge significantly reduces the latency associated with media services, ensuring a more responsive user experience. This decentralized approach not only minimizes latency but also enhances the overall efficiency of media service deployments.

MEC Platform

The Lanner Edge Server ECA-5540, validated on Intel's Intel® Data Center GPU Flex Series and Intel’s Converged Edge Media Platform, facilitates the seamless deployment of orchestrated cloud-native media services. This ensures an integrated approach to media service delivery, enhancing the overall reliability and performance of the services.
