CEP is currently being adopted in fields like marketing, social infrastructure, and particularly financial markets. In the future, it’s likely to be used in applications such as smart grids that use IT to manage electric energy efficiently.

Japan’s NTT Data is the country’s leader in applying large-scale, real-time data analysis based on CEP. After an evaluation, it chose the Intel® Xeon® processor E7 family, which has approximately 1.5 times the performance of the Intel Xeon processor 7500 series NTT was using and can support more than 10,000 sensors. The evaluation also showed the difference from enabling or disabling Intel® Hyper-Threading Technology (for multi-threaded processing) and Intel® Turbo Boost Technology (for automatically boosting the core clock frequency).

“The improvement in performance means we can analyze a wider range of bridge information with high precision. Similarly, greater processing capacity per unit means more bridges monitored by one server, for better cost/performance,” explained Yoko Inaba, assistant manager of the Information Technology Deployment Center  at NTT’s Research and Development Headquarters.
