Compared to the 4G network, 5G features enhanced mobile broadband (eMBB), ultra-reliable low latency communications (URLLC), and massive machine-type communications (mMTC). These three attributes define what 5G is, and imply the basic requirements for storage devices running on a 5G network. Due to the fact that higher frequency signals are easily blocked by obstacles, microinfrastructure plays a critical role in expanding network coverage, guaranteeing high-speed performance, and ensuring high reliability. Therefore, reliable storage devices are fundamental for efficient operations.

Challenges & Solutions

Efficient Storage

High-Performance Real-Time Computing

High-Quality and High-Performance Storage

Trasncend's industrial SSDs are designed with PCIe Gen 4x4 interface and BiCS5 flash, unleashing ultra-high speeds that can read and write large amounts of data simultaneously. Transcend's DDR5 DRAM modules deliver high bandwidth and low latency, ideal for real-time data storage in 5G network. These high-performance storage devices enable 5G applications to realize highly reliable and highly efficient operations.

Massive Data Storage & High-Resolution Data Transmission

Storage Capacity Tailored to Customer Needs

5G communication often deals with large amounts of data such as high-definition image transfer or 4K video streaming. To ensure the utmost performance, Transcend provides storage devices with ample capacities, allowing clients to select the most suitable option based on their needs. This makes sure transfer speeds remain unaffected, and storage devices can maintain long-term stability, ensuring data availability and smooth signal transmission.

Durability & Reliability

Data Accuracy & Reliability

ECC Mechanism

Data accuracy is vital for 5G applications as errors and interferences often occur when transferring large amounts of data. That's why we need ECC(error correction code) mechanism. ECC mechanism detects and corrects errors in memory data to ensure data integrity. This is relatively crucial for applications such as financial transaction, personal health information access, and corporate confidential data. ECC function further ensures SSDs' performance, minimizes the impacts of corrupted data on system operations, and elevates overall stability and quality.

Harsh Operating Environments & Non-Stop Operations

SLC Mode

5G network devices often handle massive information processing tasks and operate around the clock to provide consistent signal stability and instantaneous responses. Thus superior durability and extended product lifespan is are paramount factors when choosing storage devices. Transcend's SLC Mode solutions satisfy this need. This technology simulates SLC on TLC flash, so the endurance can reach as high as 100,000 P/E cycles, equivalent to SLC flash. This not only extends the lifespan of storage devices, but also enhances random speed performance. What's more, the overall cost is lower than other alternative storage devices, delivering robustness and high economic efficiency for business clients.

Edge Computing

Extreme Temperatures & Thermal Cycling

Extended Temperature & Wide Temperature

5G communication devices are often installed outdoors, subject to various weather conditions and rapid temperature swift. Transcend's BiCS5 SSDs are engineered for consistent operation across extended temperatures, spanning from -20°C~75°C. Transcend also provides Wide Temperature feature to ensure storage devices can agilely adapt to challenging environments, guaranteeing lower device failure and prolonged lifespan. Transcend's flash products, including SSDs, memory cards, and industrial USB flash drives, can provide a wide temperature range of -40°C to 85°C. Industrial DDR5/DDR4 memory modules can offer a wide temperature range of -40°C to 95°C.

Product Miniaturization and Overheating Risk

M.2 2242/2230 Form Factor with Thermal Management

Network appliances usually involve edge computing, which requires compact storage devices to deliver high performance within end systems. Transcend's embedded SSDs encompass slim M.2 2242 & 2230 form factors that can adapt to space-constrained systems. The optimized component layout enables superior storage capability despite confined space. Additionally, we adopt a dynamic thermal throttling mechanism to control drive temperature, avoiding overheating problem in systems with poor heat dissipation. With this mechanism, SSD lifespan can be prolonged, while maintenance costs can be reduced.
