Source:iResearchJanuary 03,202311:02 AM Overview

Computing power network has a long construction cycle, and the construction maturity varies depending on regions, industries, and scenarios. Based on research and interviews, the report summarizes three factors for evaluating the maturity of computing power network:(1) Basic performance: evaluate the adequacy of computing power network resources, computing power network scheduling capability and operational capability; (2) Stability: Evaluate the overall security and operation and maintenance capabilities of the computing power network; (3) Development potential: Evaluate whether the computing power network has a scale effect based on the business performance and market coverage after the computing power network is put into industrial practice.

With the advancement of computing power network construction, the focus gradually shifts from basic resource construction to scenario application.  As the AI capability and solutions are more and more refined, intelligent computing power will become the key development direction. Meanwhile, the application of computing power networks gives terminals unlimited computing power and deterministic network, which will further promote business scenario innovation and scientific research.


The Connotation and Structure of Computing Power Network

A computing power network is a resource network in the digital age. It takes computing as the core, realizes connection through the network, and provides matching and scheduling services through perception. The Computing power network has three major elements: (1) Computing: the core resource of the computing power network; (2) Perception: the perception of computing power demand in specific scenarios and computing power resources; (3) Connection: the integration of decentralized, heterogeneous, multi-level, and idle computing power. Thanks to these three elements, the computing power network can have functional attributes and service attributes, efficiently revitalize computing power resources of the whole society and empower industry applications. Based on its technical architecture, the computing power network can be divided into three layers, the basic resource layer, the scheduling layer, and the operation layer. At the same time, computing power network operation& maintenance and security cover the whole process. Ultimately, the computing power network will empower industry applications in the form of products or capabilities.

Development Stage and Construction Status of Computing Power Network

The construction and development of the computing power network have three stages: (1) Pan-connection: strengthen the connection attribute of the computing power network, and form an inclusive and interconnected computing power and network basic resource pool; (2) Perception fusion: a new operation model of integrated computing power and network scheduling is formed based on the perception system of business scenarios and resource pools. (3) Imperceptible call: The computing power network breaks the limitation of physical space, and establishes a deterministic computing power connection between terminals, allowing users to use unlimited computing power without feeling it. Currently, the construction of computing power network is in the pan-connection stage. Led by operators, research institutes and related organizations jointly set projects to carry out research, and promote the completion of computing power network resources of large data centers and heterogeneous computing power. Computing power network still has a long way to go to before realizing mature application.

Co-construction Direction of Computing Power Network

Constructing a computing power network requires the full cooperation of all participants in the industry chain. They need to complement each other in various fields, links, and levels and jointly promote the construction of the computing power network through the penetration and integration of technologies and scenarios. During the construction of a computing power network, operators mainly provide top-level design guidance and basic resources. In terms of software-related resource management, scheduling, security, operation and maintenance, computing power transaction business models and specific business scenarios need deep cooperation between all participants.

Ecological Construction of the Computing Power Network

During computing power network construction, it is necessary for operators to build a computing power network ecology to gain advanced technologies and management models. Guided by national strategies, the operators need to cooperate with players in industry, academia, and research, and promote the formulation of industrial policies and standards. At the same time, they closely cooperate with end-user service providers to break the limitations of traditional business scenarios and innovate business models, jointly promoting the reform of computing power network business forms in the whole industry. With the advancement of computing power network construction, the ecological construction of operators will tilt. However, generally speaking, the social attribute and strategic meaning of computing power networks will remain the same. In the future, operators will change their strategy from competition and cooperation to co-existance, and lower the threshold of computing power networks by ecological layouts. The computing power network will benefit all walks of life.
