GPGPU Computing for Next-Generation Mission-Critical Applications

Recent developments in artificial intelligence (AI) and growing demands imposed by both the enterprise and military sectors call for heavy-lift tasks such as: rendering images for video; analysis of high-volumes of data in detecting risks and generating real-time countermeasures demanded by cybersecurity; as well as the software-based abstraction of complex hardware systems. While IC-level advancements in compute acceleration are not sufficiently meeting these demands, this discussion proposes heterogeneous computing as an alternative.

Among the many benefits that heterogeneous computing offers is the appropriate assignment of workloads to traditional CPUs, task-specific chips such as graphics processing units (GPUs), and the relatively new general purpose GPU (GPGPU). These chipsets, combined with application specific hardware platforms developed by ADLINK in conjunction with NVIDIA provide solutions offering low power consumption, optimized performance, rugged construction, and small form factors (SFFs) for every industry across the globe.

Balancing new apps and privacy on the 5G Edge: Opinions and views of Millennials

5G networks are the next step forward in mobile/cellular networks. They are characterized by very high downlink (and uplink) speeds, low latency, a flat network architecture with split control and user planes, and a services-oriented focus. 5G networks leverage a bevy of new technologies: fronthaul, CRAN, virtualization (NFV), software defined networking (SDN), edge computing, Massive MIMO, etc.
There are three fundamental 5G use cases and applications: enhanced mobile broadband (eMBB), massive machine type communications (mMTC) and ultra-reliable low latency (URLLC).

For this white paper, iGR has measured interest in several specific 5G services and applications that rely on at least one of the aspects of 5G functionality – enhanced mobile broadband (eMBB), ultra-reliable low latency (URLLC), or massive IoT. Some of the services, such as mobile gaming with Augmented Reality (AR) or Virtual Reality (VR), are not possible without 5G; others are simply enhanced by 5G functionality.
