Intelligent edge appliances maker Lanner Electronics is working with fellow Taiwanese company Gorilla Technology to deliver AI-optimised video intelligence while ensuring cyber security and data protection at the edge.
 
The LEC-2290 secure edge AI product integrates Lanner's intelligent edge computing appliance with Gorilla's real-time video analytics and IoT security platform.
 
"Security in edge AI platforms remains the top concern for organisations adopting video analytics technology in their mission-critical applications," said Geoffrey Egger, vice president at Lanner, "Lanner's partnership with Gorilla Technology delivers to providers a complete, all-in-one edge AI platform composed of a powerful edge computing appliance, advanced video algorithms and comprehensive data security."
 
The intelligent edge computing system is powered by the eighth-generation Intel Core i7 processor, codenamed Coffee Lake S. For deployment in environments from -20 to +45˚C and to meet high-power PoE requirements of network applications, it has six RJ45 GbE LAN ports with four PoE outputs for IP camera power supply, two removable HDD and SSD trays, and two PCIe slots for the GPU accelerator.
 
Integrating hardware-based protection equipped with bios security and TPM, it enables secure, low-latency video AI applications, such as city surveillance, machine vision and mobile surveillance.
 
"With the coming 5G era, there is strong demand for network security in IoT, edge and gateway devices,” said Spincer Koh, CEO of Gorilla Technology. “This partnership promises to fulfil the demand by delivering Lanner AI appliances engrained with Gorilla IoT security and video analytics. Empowered by IVar IoT security, video analytics and video management from Gorilla Technology, the Lanner LEC-2290 Edge IPC has transformed into a highly secure AI appliance. Incorporating IoT security into this AI appliance, the client's encrypted video analytics data are under protection by a cyber-attack trapping system, internal network threat detection, real-time alert notifications, as well as threat source reporting for intrusion prevention and apprehension."
 
Lanner Electronics is a provider of design, engineering and manufacturing services for network appliances and rugged applied computing platforms for system integrators, service providers and application developers.
 
Gorilla Technology, a privately held company established in 2001, specialises in video intelligence, network intelligence and IoT technology.
