SINGAPORE, May 5, 2021 – (亞太商訊 via – 中信國際電訊集團有限公司(香港交易所股份代號:1883)全資擁有的中信國際電訊(信息技術)有限公司(「中信國際電訊CPC」)欣然宣佈,憑藉「DataHOUSE™ AR千里眼」遠程維護服務(AR Remote Hand)的卓越效能,在「新加坡商業評論 – 卓越科技獎(Singapore Business Review Technology Excellence Awards “SBR TEA”)」中榮獲 「電訊業擴增實境及虛擬現實項目 (Augmented & Virtual Reality Award for Telecommunications)」獎項。 「DataHOUSE™ AR千里眼」 遠程維護服務是一個非常實用及高效的解決方案,讓前線工程師與後勤工程師和支援人員進行無縫協作,數據並可以實時傳送。此方案透過前線工程師配戴相關AR智能眼鏡,識別任何有指定二維碼的設備,繼而從後台系統讀取已加密的數據;利用預設程序(例如手勢)檢視該設備的資料,包括設備的歷年記錄或狀態、服務手冊、複雜的技術步驟,故障排除日誌和圖像等,迅速進行數據分析、設備維護、故障排除和現場操作,無須再因查看實體工作手冊而中斷工作,使生產力躍升高達五成。 傳統上,前線工程師需要常以電郵或電話來聯絡後勤支援人員,難以具體描述故障實況。「DataHOUSE™ AR千里眼」推出後,後勤工程師現可透過AR控制台看到前線工程師從AR智能眼鏡現場串流傳送的實時影像,大大提升工作的速度和質素,而其效能強大的視像會議功能亦能為工程師提供即時支援,促進全球操作及維護團隊之間的場外協作,並克服了時區、語言和距離的挑戰,以及在多重技術環境中對專業技能的需求。 目前新冠肺炎仍然肆虐全球,對客戶而言,要安排其IT人員親赴數據中心管理所需設備實在不容易。中信國際電訊CPC的「DataHOUSE™ AR千里眼」服務遂成為客戶的千里眼。客戶不僅可身處辦事處或其他地點透過AR控制台即時看到置於數據中心的設備的實況,更能即時向中信國際電訊CPC的前線工程師發出指引,在毋須置身數據中心的情況下,亦可妥善解決其設備問題。 「DataHOUSE™ AR千里眼」是中信國際電訊CPC的數據科學家和研發專家團隊的成功之作。團隊以他們的專業知識與香港應用科技研究院有限公司(「應科院」)的專家技術相結合,共同創建了突破性的技術,顛覆在數據中心的設備管理和維護。應科院由香港特別行政區政府成立,其使命是透過應用科技研究,協助發展以科技為基礎的產業,藉此提升香港的競爭力。 中信國際電訊CPC目前正通過擴展其支援的供應商設備和加入人工智能(AI)技術,進一步強化AR千里眼的功能,期望日後可把技術擴展至更多服務範疇。作為亞太區跨國企業及商業客戶最可信賴的合作夥伴之一,中信國際電訊CPC致力持續為客戶提供全球領先的網絡連接、雲運算、信息安全和數據中心服務,成為企業可靠的信息技術方案供應商。 新加坡商業評論(Singapore Business Review)於本年四月的第二周和第三周通過視像會議頒發「卓越科技獎」(The Technology Excellence Awards)。今年的評委包括:Daryl Pereira, Head of Cyber at KPMG; Cheang Wai Keat, […]
