User-centric, multi-level network architecture “key to smart cities’and digital world development”
Presenting his remarks at the Global 6G Development Conference in Shanghai and IECN conference in Shenzhen, Dr Yang Yang, Chief Scientist at Terminus Group, outlined how 2023 will see a surge in 6G R&D, with several innovations crucial to the smart transformation of a future digital world.
Noting that while requirements are ever-changing, network architecture customized for each user has been identified by Terminus Group as the next step in smart city process and is encouraging others to create new network architecture – based on smart IoT infrastructure. For its part as a pioneer and leader in the increasingly combined sectors of artificial intelligence and the Internet of Things (AIoT), Terminus Group has also set about to analyze user demands across the digital world.
Dr Yang said: “The challenges of large digitalization, network transmission and expensive centralized computing have accelerated a new direction of decentralized computing and full resource sharing.
The contradiction between personalized demand, fragmented service and formalized process has spawned new demands for integrated service and end-to-end experience guarantee.
“To address these demands, Terminus Group's city-level operating system TacOS (Terminus AI CITY Operating System) can comprehensively enable the management of software and hardware resources and digital functions, effectively solving core problems in digital world operations. This includes areas such as whole-domain digital perception, real-time fault warning, collaborative problem resolution, process innovation and reengineering, service iteration and optimization, through the system's technology and business integration, among other things,” Dr Yang added.
Introducing TacOS 3.0, the latest version of the operating system (OS) to the assembled conference guests, Dr Yang outlined how the new OS will effectively become the nerve center at the heart of any smart city’s digital foundation and ensure the best user experience for all kinds of urban space applications and services.
As 5G has widespread commercial used, 6G is increasingly becoming the focus for the global scientific and technology community. Backing Dr Yang's assertions, results of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers’(IEEE) global research paper, ‘The Impact of Science and Technology in 2023 and the Future’ has stated that next generation technologies will take center-stage in technological development.
Dr Yang also emphasized that the development of 6G mobile communication will evolve from a technology-driven model to a service-oriented, digital world model. The realization of this vision is driven by a need to not only to improve the network KPIs in different application scenarios, but also to make rational use of heterogeneous network resources and universally available AI algorithms. In doing so, more effective integration, analysis, and collaboration on large amounts of information in the digital world can be realized. In turn, this will comprehensively address the personalized and customized needs of each user.
Terminus Group's smart, user-centric network architecture is intended to serve that goal through a series of measures, including a Service Requirement Zone (SRZ) and User Satisfaction Ratio (USR).
The SRZ describes multi-dimensional customized service requirements by assessing user service performance, which determines the users’ overall end-to-end experience. The USR calculates the satisfaction ratio of all users by comparing each dimension of the user SRZ, and then delivering final system performance results.
In order to achieve higher quality of experience (QoE) and USR, Terminus Group has introduced a multi-level network smart architecture with multi-functional node (mNode) as the basic network element. This also includes integrated local heterogeneous system resources, providing a smart endogenous AI localization service platform, which supports the personalized and customized service requirements of different users for various businesses.
Commenting on the new multi-network architecture, Terminus Group Founder and CEO, Victor Ai, said: “We have a responsibility and obligation to bridge the digital gap through AIoT technology, so that vulnerable groups - such as the elderly - can benefit from the dividend of scientific and technological development and the digital economy.
“As the leading enterprise of AIoT technology, Terminus Group will connect the virtual and real world with smart technologies and enable cities of the future with the latest innovations in technology. By creating a smart and proprietary multi-level network architecture, we have provided a platform for user-centric and customized services for the future smart city and the digital world. Ultimately, this will all lead to increasing well-being for urban citizens.”
