The Edge in the palm of your hand

Edge computing is becoming a regular feature of today’s IOT network strategies. The explosion of data processing requirements has caused providers to rethink how to position themselves in this rapidly developing market.

Edge data centres are generally smaller facilities that exist at the edge of the internet network. They are designed to deliver seamless, ultra-low latency computing of large volumes of typically real time data as close to the source as practically possible.

Typical examples of Edge data centres might include those for localised traffic management of autonomous vehicles or for faster transfer of recreational video traffic across the cellular network

Fifth generation mobile networks with their much faster data transfer rates are being used to extend the reach of the internet with data transfer speeds approaching those of hard-wired systems and Edge computing will be the interface between those networks and Cloud computing.

Edge data centres will be located in all manner of places and often with extremely rapid deployment.

Simplicity, reliability and resilience will need to be the hallmarks of any Edge data centre.

For Edge data centres to economically provide more expansive services on an on-demand real-time basis, they must be unmanned, exhibit extremely high availability and offer remote access to monitor the performance of the supporting infrastructure.

The Piller CPM 300 has been designed to address the UPS demand in an Edge data centre and is matched perfectly for use with a modern generator or for standalone operation.

It offers a one box solution with built-in dependable energy storage and state-of-the-art efficiencies in all operating modes. Batteries are not required, eliminating one of the more intense maintenance elements of other systems, the operating temperature range is wider, often eliminating the need for additional cooling and the system can be rapidly deployed without the need for any additional assembly.

And finally, the user can securely access the operating status of every Piller CPM through the use of mobile IOS and Android devices, anywhere in the World, anytime.
