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. Better yet, it's doing so with a common infrastructure that makes the management of the platform and the services delivered by it less complex.
WWT's CEP solution is a multi-purpose platform in a single box -- a containerized approach that offers a repeatable, scalable approach to 5G for enterprises to more quickly consume technologies and makes it simpler for operators to deploy:
- A platform to deliver MEC applications for enterprise industry verticals.
- Enterprise connectivity via Private LTE.
- An NFVI platform to deliver virtualized services to the enterprise.
In a 5G sense, a converged edge solution can relieve carriers of the burden of being a software company by providing an integrated approach that makes 5G infrastructure easier to rollout and simpler to consume for enterprise customers.
