Edge Computing brings new challenges for the lifecycle of facilities and for improving resilience in locations where there are typically no employees, and which are often deployed ad hoc.
Edge operators will need to look at four key issues, which will help them minimise downtime and risk in an infrastructure evolving from mission-critical to mission-critical.
To manage tens, hundreds or thousands of perimeter nodes that are impossible to control on site, innovative AI-based solutions are needed to provide real-time Edge information based on data about energy consumption and availability, thermal behavior, humidity, airflow, and environmental anomalies.
In this way. Users can "live" optimize consumption while minimizing risks by dynamically adjusting the optimal cooling and power modes.
A central panel to easily operate on the global and individual status of Edge sites, including alarms, metrics, environmental conditions that may compromise the site.
These operation visualization tools should be tailored to Edge objectives with AI-based alerts that help operators stay informed in real-time about the most critical operational factors.
Dashboard users must understand and anticipate key performance metrics through predictive and dynamic analytics. In short, anticipate what might happen at any remote location.
The distribution of the Edge in remote and unattended locations makes it necessary to control the physical security of sites. This is often less than in central environments.
When implementing an Edge computing strategy, it is necessary to consider a greater number of risk and accidental situations. For example, access, power outages and extreme environmental conditions.
You will need to have the ability to run workloads securely without interruption in the event of incidents, such as network connection disruption between data centers or downed power grids.
At TycheTools, we create artificial intelligence and machine learning tools to maximize operational visibility into the Edge to facilitate better decision making and automation.
Putting data analytics at the heart of operations, facilitating energy savings, increased robustness, and resilience of operations.
The knowledge of this data, its intelligent analysis, together with the identification of previous patterns, facilitates the development of business and operational strategies that adjust to different needs, substantially reducing errors and optimising resources.
The exponential growth of technology, digitization and IoT has increased the demand for Edge computing. Operators are facing new, increasingly complex problems and need to adopt new technologies to reduce the impact on their operational costs, customers, and the planet.
Any distributed network needs extra effort to be properly controlled. TycheTools puts its technology at the service of the operation to meet all these challenges in a simple way, whatever the network infrastructure.
