WWT CONVERGED EDGE PLATFORM
A multi-purpose platform that offers a repeatable, scalable approach to 5G for enterprises to more quickly consume technologies.
Converged Edge Platform
The converged edge will play a key role in a service provider’s overall 5G strategy by delivering services and connectivity in support of specific industry verticals.
Think of WWT's Converged Edge as a multi-purpose platform in a single box — a containerized approach that makes it simpler to deploy:
- Edge-enabled applications and services.
- Enterprise connectivity via Private LTE.
- An NFVI platform to deliver virtualized services to the enterprise.
Watch How We Piece the Puzzle Together
Our Converged Edge Platform (CEP) relieves carriers of the disaggregation headache by providing an integrated approach that makes 5G infrastructure easier to rollout for service providers and simpler to consume for enterprise customers.
We recently highlighted the benefits a Converged Edge delivers to service providers at VMworld 2020.
Converged Edge Use Cases
Learn how enterprise decision makers are approaching edge and what use cases they’re looking to deploy before bringing them to market.
Private networks will help deliver enterprise services and allow for differentiated business models that accelerate digital transformation.
Streamline the NFV validation process by taking advantage of the latest industry tools in our Advanced Technology Center.
Edge in Action
QiO: Gain Visibility Into Everything
Infrastructure is necessary. The true value lies in the applications that run on top of the Converged Edge Platform. Operators must identify and understand vertical use cases and related applications most likely to gain market traction. WWT works with QiO Technologies, which provides AI-infused analytical applications that predict and prescribe actions to unlock trapped productivity and efficiencies across industries.
Edge in Action
Superlumin: Accelerate Content at the Edge
Latency and network congestions often cause poor performance for cloud-based applications used by enterprises all around the world, establishing a need for solutions at the edge. Enhance quality, reliability and experience by utilizing edge caching, which stores data and content closer to users looking to consume such content.
Accelerate Deployment With Our Converged Edge Blueprint
Our Converged Edge Platform (CEP) solution presents a reference architecture with hardware and software optimizations pre-validated in our Advanced Technology Center (ATC) to create deployment specific builds. We have also considered the need for use case validation, supporting both production functionality and analytical modeling, and provide a process for testing and iteration.
Integrated and Split Deployment Models
The Converged Edge Platform will be deployed both in the enterprise and the operator’s network, which requires two integration and deployment approaches.
Common Administrative Domains
The shared infrastructure option, which is more suitable the enterprise edge, runs all of the services on top of the same server in a smaller footprint.
Benefits: Conserve costs and unified operations.
Split Administrative Domains
The dedicated infrastructure option, which is more suitable for the telco edge, runs on the same architecture but splits out mobile edge computing and core mobility.
Benefits: Independent evolution, dedicated operations, security isolation, and resource isolation and guarantee.
Leverage Our Next-Generation Factory
Our Next-Generation Factory enablement model allows operators to move from innovation to validation and deployment more rapidly than in the past. It accelerates time to revenue by validating complex, multi-vendor solutions, such as the Converged Edge Platform, with speed in our ATC, integrating them at scale in one of our global integration facilities and supporting throughout the entire process with professional services.
