At the core of ICT: AI
We believe Artificial Intelligence is at the core of all future technologies. With the help of digitalization and the availability of smaller and very powerful chipsets almost anything we use in our daily life will have computing capabilities. Thats why we put AI on the base of our products and build on top of it. Products that cover the topics like cyber security, predictive maintenance, smart energy solution, smart building, autonomous vehicle, smart simulator and machine learning-enabled virtual reality.
We have setup our infrastructure based on this vision of AI and digitalization. We have a one-of-a-kind "High Performance Computing" machine (HPC) that houses 30.000 GPU cores and 260 CPU cores. This HPC gives us the ability to process huge amount of streaming data in real-time for ML and AI applications.
The focus of our cyber security team is to address intelligent security solutions to meet the challenges with increased complexity of information and network systems which are the backbone of modern society.
The way of doing is not just coming up with secure protocols for secure information transfer or conventional perimeter protection based on firewalls but also using the information of IT systems in order to defend against the incoming threats and attack types.
In SemperTech, basic security principles (confidentiality, integrity, availability, access control and non-repudiation) are practiced and practically utilized. One of the distinguishing factors of our security solutions is utilizing Artificial Intelligence (mainly Machine Learning). This brings the brand new era of security and we believe it is going to reduce the consumption of human resources drastically in the future.
Future Mobile Networks
The last decade has witnessed fast paced evolution of telecommunication networks, which is strongly driven by their positioning as main channel of delivery of most modern services of smart cities. The robust air interface, high performance, relatively easy integration to IP networks and availability of low cost multimedia terminals have created a growing interest towards a continued evolving pattern of the communication network technologies.The technological developments have freed the operators of being locked into proprietary platforms, where the operators were bound to an end-to-end knitted solution of incumbent vendors.
Flexibility in network control and elasticity in infrastructure are the new prerequisites for a dynamic and policy driven network services, fitting ICT for smart cities, and achieving the envisioned convergence of heterogeneous technologies. The principles of new enabling technologies like Software Defined Networking (SDN) does not only enable the centralized control of overall infrastructure but also transform the network to a programmable and flexible network, which can dynamically be shared by the diverse set of network services. Yet, more flexibility is promised by the revolutionary and complementing concept of Network Function Virtualization (NFV) that moves the network functions from dedicated appliances to generic servers. In S-Labs, we carry out research on different aspects of 5G mobile networks, specifically: SDN, NFV, Cloud computing, and imparting intelligence in the networks by making use of Agent technologies and machine learning.
Smart Buildings & IoT
The Internet of things (IoT) is the interconnection network which things are connected to each other or to some bigger systems.
Energy consumption can be monitored, smart grids can be constructed with IoT which results in a more secure and efficient energy consumption and decrease in customer expenses.
We can organize traffic better with IoT and intervene emergency situations in a faster and effective manner. Thus, we can create secure cities.
We can administer and monitor house services such as lightining, heating, entertainment and security remotely and create construct smart homes.
