eSix's solution edgeWares™ secures win at HKB Technology Excellence Awards 2020
The key solution to the success of 5G applications in monetization.
Network technology company eSix has received the Network and Broadband - Telecommunications trophy in the recently concluded HKB Technology Excellence Awards 2020, presented by Hong Kong Business magazine, for its eSix patented technology product, edgeWares™.
Now in its second year, the awards event honours enterprises that take risks and lead the charge in developing groundbreaking projects, digital services, reimagined strategies, and technological initiatives. Winners were judged on the basis of uniqueness and innovation, effectiveness and impact, and dynamism.
Today’s 5G industrial ioT deployment is facing the critical bottleneck because of fragment networking technologies on different applications based on the standard 20+ years ago. This has created high barriers, such as cost and complications for large scale deployment.
The need for many moving machines, such as autonomous vehicles, automatic ports, smart manufactures, smart transportation over a large geographical area using mobile connectivity is now greater than ever. The seamless supervision of these machines from a control center is unfortunately an unsolved problem and many deployments ran into operation difficulties or risky scenarios in the field.
It has never received any attention and is not well specified in 3GPP standard.
Because of this, eSix patented a technology which removes the barriers, speeds up the go to market schedule, as well as shortens the period on monetization of the investment.
edgeWares™ supports seamless supervision over many autonomous vehicles/machines in 5G network with its patented protocol on layer 2 overlay tunneling. e.g. reducing the tunneling handover time, making it over 70x times faster, etc.
The company is focused on Industrial loT communication, especially applying on the 5G network for using at high speed moving vehicles communication such as AGV, unmanned trucks or factory automatic machines, etc. Its patented technology on IP network tunneling enables 5G network connecting massive amongst industrial devices, AGVs, machines, etc. smoothly.
eSix is based in HKSTP, a member of the incubation program, formed by expertise with extensive experience in network technology and innovative capabilities, has its R&D staff in both Hong Kong and Guangzhou.
In TianJin Port POC in 2019, it was able to support under 150 m sec handover time without changing any network configuration of the associated equipment, so there is no lapse observed by the control center. This is the first time where such a monitoring problem was solved satisfactorily.
Because of this success test, ZTE already put edgeWares™ into their 5G solution component to play a critical edge computing role for ZTE 5G commercial network deployment.
eSix is also expanding to selling internationally, receiving its first order this July from a Thai company. Apart from these, it has also kick started other international industrial partnerships such as Dell, Foxconn, etc.
The HKB Technology Excellence Awards, presented by Hong Kong Business, was held via video conferencing throughout the month of September.
This year’s nominations were judged by a panel consisting of Gilles Alexandre Salansy, Partner, Accounting and Outsourcing at Mazars Hong Kong; Jason Yau, Partner, Technology and Management Consulting at RSM Hong Kong; Douglas Kwan, Partner, Assurance and Advisory Services at SHINEWING (HK) CPA Limited; Steve Lo, Partner and Asia-Pacific Chief Innovation Officer at Ernst & Young; and Loretta Fong, Partner and Telecommunications Leader at PwC Hong Kong.
