Tokyo, Japan, June 1, 2020 — Positive ONE, today announced that the Japan Patent Office(JPO) has issued a formal notice allowing Positive ONE’s patent application directed to its regarding next-generation edge computing, IoT, and AI technologies for 5G and 6G mobile technology.
JPO Patent (Patent No. 6703236): It is suitable for processing big data by 5G and 6G mobile services. Especially for images obtained from multiple cameras, it performs overloaded processing such as image classification, object detection, and gesture recognition. Under that situation, it is an architecture that can realize load distribution to the right place.
“The significant increase in power consumption due to 5G and 6G is a bottleneck. This latest patent solves that problem. It can be applied to the architecture of next-generation edge computers and IoT terminals for 5G and 6G. Furthermore, the key is the power-saving design that makes full use of the high density and miniaturization technology, which is an advantage of PositiveONE. Then, we are currently applying for additional patents to strengthen our rights.” said Shoichi Kudo, CEO & COO, Positive ONE.
“July 2019, Positive ONE applied the Tokyo Metropolitan Government management innovation plan, approved as an innovation business for small IoT terminals. As part of that extension, a patent was granted to implement a distributed system for 5G and 6G technologies. In particular, server systems on the cloud process a lot of data, so the load is already distributed. In most data processing, processing by function distribution and load distribution is performed. Also, with mobile services that connect with 5G and 6G, even in edge computers and IoT terminals, there is a need to handle large amounts of data such as 4K / 8K video. Therefore, if you are not connected to 5G or 6G, in situations such as infrastructure failures, In order to prevent processing stop and delay on edge computers and IoT terminals, It is necessary to have the same or a minimum processing function as the cloud server. In other words, in small edge computers and IoT terminals, the processing capacity is improved, in order to realize low consumption and miniaturization, It is necessary to realize distributed technology that combines small SoCs.”
“By the way, in particular, the server system on the cloud performs a lot of data processing, so the load is already distributed, in most data processing, processing by function distribution and load distribution is performed,” he added.
