【Product Information】zMEC Development Kit Connect your applications and exploit your data better

May 24, 2021


◆What is zMEC?

Z-COM launched “zMEC Development Kit” which brings data processing centralized to the end device. The features of low latency optimize the processing efficiency and are suitable for applications with large amounts of data that require real-time response.

zMEC, based on Kubernetes, allows you to deploy and manage containerized applications at scale. Any software including libraries, system tools, code, and runtime can be packed into standardized units. Besides, through a single management platform, data can be processed in different architectures while running third party's applications. It can extend any related edge computing applications and AIoT software. This greatly reduces system development time and highly increases operational flexibility.

In addition, a wireless controller with centralized management for bulk AP configuration is embedded in zMEC. With intuitive interface, zMEC enhances the efficiency of network maintenance.


Accelerate response time :

Data package be classified and processed in local. By optimizing the transmission path from terminals to clouds, it reduces latency and network traffic.

Less overhead deployment :

Node and terminal work on free channel make the cost cheaper. zMEC is capable to adjust services for demand in real time and reduce bandwidth cost.

Greater applicability/ flexibility :

Software container partitions applications into multiple units, composing a large application system by module for various applications and is well-adapted to work with IoT frame based on microservice architecture.

Security of data transmission :

With the feature of firewall, it can enhance security of the network. Through container, it can also be combined with enterprise security software such as ESET.McAfee.

◆Use zMEC, to maximize efficiency of information management

zMEC can be applied in various industries through the function of data collection, equipment management, real-time data computing and analysis as well as graphical interfaces.

◆Integrating Open Source into your business

By following the setup documents, customers no longer need to delve into numerous data formats, write code or stream in the cloud. It shortens the development time and greatly improves the system application import efficiency and flexibility. Z-COM established the “5G Wi-Fi Interoperability Test and Technology Innovation Laboratory” as well and invited partners, integrators and third-party software vendor in AIoT field to join us to create more solutions by collaborating in zMEC development kit.
