Vasona Networks announced a partnership with F5 to work together to power virtual multi-access edge computing (MEC) deployments for mobile operators at scale.

The collaboration between Vasona Networks and F5 comes as operators globally are investing in intelligent edge capabilities to offer differentiated and agile low-latency services on the path to 5G.

F5’s advanced load balancing and load sharing redundancy combined with Vasona’s SmartAIR Virtual Edge Services Platform (vESP) in-line traffic monitoring and management can be deployed quickly to deliver health monitoring and high-availability across applications and MEC platform functions, said Vasona Networks.

According to Vasona Networks, this is especially important in emerging industries such as industrial IoT, autonomous vehicles and smart cities, where redundancy and uninterrupted service is critical to ongoing operation.

5G is just around the corner and MEC represents the start of a new era of evolved technology implementations from the RAN to the network edge to the cloud.

John Reister, SVP of Marketing and Product, Vasona Networks
Vasona’s MEC software platform delivers increased capital efficiency and network agility to support new business cases. Our work with F5 extends these capabilities to virtualized networks, where we can ensure uninterrupted services for a range of new industries.
