Server manufacturer Inventec has unveiled its latest ‘high-efficiency’ Artificial Intelligence of Things (IoT) Edge box system E200G4.

A ‘high-performance’ edge AIoT device, the Inventec E200G4 is backed by an 11th Gen Intel Core TigerLake-UP3 CPU that supports high performance and reliability for IoT systems and Intel Iris Xe graphics that can decode over 40 video streams at 1080p resolution and 30fps. It provides multiple internal M.2 expansion slots and wireless modules, supporting 4GLTE or 5GNR (sub-6G) and WiFi-6 modules for IoT applications or SSD NVMe modules for general storage.The system is equipped with two slots for AI accelerators of up to 70 TOPS. The E200G4’s high-bandwidth network communication capabilities can cater to the demands of different application procedures, the company described in a statement

E200G4 supports Fixed Wireless Access (FWA) technology that delivers 5G/LTE broadband services to residential subscribers and enterprise customers. E200G4 is Microsoft Azure certified device, which allows for quick and efficient deployment as an edge device for Microsoft cloud services.

E200G4 can also run Canonical’s open source NFV stack, designed for hosting VNFs with optimum performance and security requirements, to become an NFVI (Network Functions Virtualization Infrastructure) platform.

The E200G4’s sturdy and industry-level system is claimed to make it perfect for a wide variety of typical IoT applications, including intelligent video surveillance, extensive data analysis, Industry 4.0, and smart healthcare. This is enhanced by Intel Time Coordinated Computing-enabled processors that deliver optimal compute and time performance for real-time IoT applications.

“Our latest AIoT, the E200G4, is an ideal uCPE or edge device for integrated AI acceleration while supporting applications that demand high-speed processing, computer vision, and low-latency deterministic computing,” said George Lin, general manager of business unit VI, Inventec.
