Vasona Networks announced Edge Breakout for delivery of blazing fast services over congested LTE networks.

The multi-access edge computing (MEC) application classifies and assures performance of latency-sensitive traffic, such as commercial IoT, and enterprise and mobile gaming applications. 

One of several available applications on Vasona’s MEC SmartAIR Edge Services Platform, Edge Breakout exposes Vasona’s real-time cell insight and traffic management capabilities to allow third-party applications to “break out” the traffic from its path near the edge and deliver it to a secure, local cloud.

When combined with Vasona’s traffic management to handle mobile congestion, fast transmission times result in consistent quality and seamless experiences for the end user, said the Company.

As cloud computing costs fall, streaming applications from the network edge open the door to new and improved mobile services, including for the enterprise.

To showcase use cases of the Edge Breakout solution, Vasona is using LiquidSky’s Lightning Platform, a serverless, global edge compute cloud that hosts and streams high-performance workloads and applications on-demand, ideal for streaming interactive content.

Lightning Platform represents one of myriad edge cloud solutions that Vasona can help power in congested mobile networks.

The mobile edge is where new possibilities are brought to life, and with Edge Breakout, Vasona continues to demonstrate its MEC leadership, supporting operators on the path to 5G.

Ian McLoughlin, founder and CEO, LiquidSky 
We believe that digital user experiences will become increasingly dynamic, interactive, cross-device, on-demand and compute-intensive. To deliver this, there are clear advantages from the security, scale and instant multi-device support that comes with interactive streaming from the edge.
