The Internet of Everything creates a new business model. Relay2 edge computing cloud gives WiFi a new mission. The Internet of Everything (IoE) brings us into an era full of personalization and interaction.
Smart devices such as mobile phones, wearable devices, and sensors are showing explosive growth, but if the data transmission and application processing generated by these devices are delivered to the cloud, it will undoubtedly put tremendous pressure on cloud computing centers and transmission networks.
For this reason, the concept of edge computing came into being. Relay2 demonstrated a WiFi-based enterprise-level distributed edge computing platform at the China Mobile Global Partner Conference, which can significantly relieve cloud pressure, improve network efficiency, reduce latency, and promote the trend of interconnection of everything Business model innovation.
“If cloud computing will be the human brain, then the edge computing that supports the access of all things is the neural network of human limbs:” explained Lu Wei, vice president of Relay2 Asia Pacific.
Big data + high-latency Internet of Everything tests enterprise WiFi construction
The landing of cloud computing has brought unprecedented innovation to enterprise network construction. Cloud delivery has improved the intelligence and flexibility of applications, and has also allowed smart devices to derive richer functions in real-time interaction.
However, for retail, financial, transportation, medical and other enterprises, as well as users of large conferences and exhibitions, applications such as the Internet of Things, the Internet of Vehicles, VR/AR, high-definition image processing, and video transmission are generating a large number of applications almost every moment. The data processing delay of these businesses is almost intolerable.
In the traditional cloud computing model, these data must be stored and processed in the cloud without exception. Not only are companies facing increased network costs, but also unfavorable factors such as network delay, jitter, and stalling still exist.

On the other hand, in most enterprise scenarios, WiFi has become a mandatory choice for enterprise wireless access technology, and is widely accepted by the market and users, and has become an important portal for users to access the Internet. The latest GSMA report points out: By 2020, there will be 25.6 billion connected devices worldwide, of which the number of WiF connected devices will exceed 45%.
The WiFi scene itself contains huge data value. The user, location, and business data generated after the connection can be mined through big data to accurately understand and track user needs, thereby providing more accurate user services. This is also the key to realizing traffic monetization and transforming the corporate network from a “cost center” to a “profit center”.
Lu Wei said: “Under the trend of Internet of Everything, low network latency and high bandwidth are in contradiction with the ever-increasing TCO cost. To solve this problem, not only the local local area network must have strong data storage and processing capabilities, but also Flexible remote control and management of the edge computing platform.
Therefore, we choose to build an integrated edge computing platform based on WiFi access on the side closest to the user, and achieve complementary and mutual coordination with the centralized cloud platform to meet the needs of intelligent data interaction Under the premise of supporting low-latency, high-traffic services.”
Distributed + Scenario-based Relay2 assists enterprises in restructuring WiFi networks
Based on the concept of edge computing, Relay2 first adopts a highly innovative cloud WiFi architecture, removing the traditional AC physical nodes, and elastically accessing the computing platform through WiFi, using distributed AP devices to achieve real-time dynamic interaction and wireless management, thereby eliminating end Management and data bottlenecks in the end-to-end system.
In addition, the cloud platform also provides remote management and operation and maintenance services, as well as centralized data analysis services to visualize and manage WiFi services.
Application is the core driving force driving the development of edge computing. Relay2 builds a powerful business engine, software container and proprietary hardware in the wireless AP, innovates with partners and customers, combines the characteristics of customers in different industries, integrates and provides mobile value-added application delivery.

Also included are the online interactive advertising, DPI , Ultra-clear video-on-demand/multicast, Internet content acceleration, non-business venue data security, and second-generation identity authentication and identification functions, high-performance, lightweight platform and flexible management are practicing the value to corporate customers.
Edge computing is integrated with user scenarios. Relay2 provides customers with integrated software and hardware integration services such as connection + value-added enterprise applications in retail, exhibition, banking and other industries.
In the retail industry, the Relay2 enterprise-level distributed edge computing platform can help users simplify the complexity of store network and business deployment, as well as the requirements for IT on-site personnel, and centrally manage the data, network, and business of all stores in the headquarters.
In addition, the platform also supports a flexible edge platform for distributed storage and computing. It can also make full use of in-store electronic screens to help companies efficiently carry out digital marketing through data analysis, content caching, and remote management. In the business practice of Dixintong, the Relay2 platform was deployed in 1,000 stores across the country and successfully achieved profitability within one year.
In the exhibition industry, the Relay2 edge computing platform provides comprehensive end-to-end exhibition networks and services based on WiFi integration, and with the powerful wireless AP hardware capabilities of up to 1G memory and 128G SSD hard disks, it can provide exhibitors and visitors to Kunming International Convention and Exhibition Center.
It provides interactive services such as WLAN business self-management, entrance diversion advertising, multi-screen interaction, WeChat plus fans, and APP distribution. While improving user experience, it also builds an efficient platform for exhibitors to promote.
In the financial industry, the Relay2 edge computing platform integrates hot banking applications. Consumers can connect to the bank’s WiFi to run cross-screen lottery, interactive games and other applications to improve the service experience for consumers.
In addition, the platform can also help banks develop outreach services in communities and target customer activity areas, and quickly and safely handle business, so that banks can quickly promote business expansion without requiring large-scale information expenditure and operation and maintenance costs.
Currently, the Relay2 edge computing platform has successfully helped Bank of Shanghai save 20%-50% of its total cost of ownership while improving its precise and interactive service capabilities.
Lu Wei said: “In the future, with the further development of the Internet of Everything trend, the Relay2 enterprise-level distributed edge computing platform will be a flexible, secure, stable, and cost-effective network solution that will meet the needs of industry digitalization in agile connectivity.
The key requirements of real-time business, data optimization, application intelligence, security and privacy protection, etc., help enterprise customers achieve business innovation and enhance value.”
