Product Overview


iMEC is an edge platform product provided by ZTE for operators' edge cloud applications. It provides all functions of enhanced edge integration except for third-party APPs (IT). At the same time, iMEC works with the O&M management products of ZTE MEC, MEPM and MEO, to provide installation and deployment, associated configuration (such as traffic distribution configuration and route configuration) and O&M hosting functions of third-party applications, providing comprehensive support for third-party applications. iMEC = (connection + computing) x capability, connection is the grip, computing is the foundation, and capability is the value. iMEC realizes the innovative integration of 5G communication technology and industry applications, and promotes the network to leap from access channel to information service enabling platform.

To meet operators' needs for rapid deployment of MEC, ZTE provides iMEC Solution. 1.Hardware integration for one-stop delivery: The MEC servers, switches, firewalls, MECs, and software are pre-integrated in the integrated cabinet. The integrated cabinet can be used immediately after it is powered on and goes online in 15 minutes. With small footprint, high integration, and low equipment room requirements, the MEC service can be rapidly deployed in enterprise parks. 2.Software convergence for best service experience:The 5G UPF and MEP are integrated to implement one-hop direct access, providing the best forwarding performance and the minimum forwarding latency. Dual-core convergence of OpenStack and Kubernetes provides operators with a unified view of edge cloud management and services, and provides MEC services with light and flexible VMs, containers and bare metals. The management components of the edge cloud are integrated and simplified to save more than 60% management resources. 3.Unified O&M for unattended on edge:The AI-based unified cloud management platform provides unified management of central cloud and edge cloud to achieve unattended edge and automatic O&M. A large number of distributed MEC resource pools are managed uniformly. The IT and CT services are orchestrated in a unified manner to achieve the rapid provisioning of third party services.
