Lenovo launches integrated Edge AI solutions

At Mobile World Congress, Lenovo announced custom AI applications for the global telco industry designed to help businesses efficiently deploy new AI use cases and turn data into faster insights. Launch customers include Deutsche Telekom, Orange and Telefonica.

The products are part of a larger pocket-to-cloud portfolio of Lenovo hybrid AI solutions officially known as Edge AI Solutions for Telco, and they’re designed to utilize data at the far edge of the network while reducing energy consumption. They include:

  • A new multi-cloud edge computing architecture with Telefonica that’s aimed at enabling mission-critical applications for smart cities, such as allowing a city to use AI for video analytics to identify smoke and fire, support public safety and improve emergency response times. This architecture combines Telefonica’s Telco Cloud with Lenovo ThinkEdge servers and Motorola’s push-to-talk technology to offer multi-cloud at the edge.
  • An expanded and extended partnership with Orange Group that’s aimed at bringing high performance, availability and energy efficiency to telco clients. The program will cover areas critical for future-proofing telecommunication infrastructure, such as new open radio access and automation.
  • A jointly validated end-to-end deployment and orchestration for Open RAN with the Lenovo ThinkEdge SE455 V3 to offer a cloud-based, software-defined networking solution. Lenovo claims that the ThinkEdge SE455 V3 server can double the number of orchestrated workloads per socket and offer more than a 50% reduction in overall Open RAN power consumption.
  • Lenovo launched Intel’s Edge Platform with Lenovo ThinkEdge for developing, deploying, running and managing edge applications at scale with cloud-like simplicity. It is built on the Lenovo ThinkEdge SE350 V2, SE360 V2 and SE450 products and uses Lenovo’s Open Cloud Automation (LOC-A) software to deploy worldwide AI applications at the edge in a matter of minutes with one-touch provisioning from a single device.

Lenovo partners with Anaconda

Lenovo also announced a partnership with Anaconda, a provider of Python and R language source code for artificial intelligence, machine learning and data science platform, to empower Lenovo’s data science workstations.

The partnership will involve preloading Anaconda’s open-source tools on Lenovo’s ThinkStation and ThinkPad workstation products, which come with high-end Intel processors and Nvidia GPUs. The combination allows data scientists to create and deploy AI solutions safely and securely. Most AI resources are in the cloud, but there has been a concerted effort to bring AI to the client side to minimize traffic and data movement.

Lenovo’s workstation portfolio includes systems designed for a broad range of AI workflows, varying by industry, size and price point. These are not your average desktops; they start with single CPU and GPU mobile workstations on the low end and scale to dual CPU and four GPU configurations for advanced AI workflows.

Of the many different versions of Python, Anaconda is one of the most enterprise oriented. Anaconda Python is targeted at developers working with math, statistics, engineering, data analysis, machine learning, and related applications. It comes with many of the most common libraries used in commercial and scientific Python work, like SciPy, NumPy, and Numba.

Anaconda Navigator is available for download to use on current and future generation Lenovo Workstations.
