Deutsche Telekom, Aricent announced the creation of an Open Source, low latency Edge compute platform available to operators, to enable them to develop and launch 5G mobile applications and services faster.

The cost-effective Edge platform is built for software-defined data centers (SDDC) and is decentralized, to accelerate the deployment of ultra-low latency applications. The joint solution will include a software framework with key capabilities for developers, delivered as a platform-as-a-service (PaaS) and will incorporate cloud-native Multi-access edge computing (MEC) technologies.

The global edge computing market size is projected to exceed USD 3 billion by 2025. By adopting Open Source strategies and virtualized networking technology at the edge, operators can deliver new services faster and at much greater operational efficiency to monetize 5G from the onset. Deutsche Telekom and Aricent recently collaborated to trial the software framework by supporting developers at Deutsche Telekom’s incubator in Germany, hub:raum.

Over the next three years, Deutsche Telekom and Aricent will be working on a number of projects to strengthen the strategic partnership. Deutsche Telekom will utilize Aricent’s consultancy, design, engineering and R&D service offerings for the group.

Tomasz Gerszberg, SVP Edge Computing, Deutsche Telekom
We believe that edge computing will be a critical success factor to achieve the full benefits of 5G for our customers and we believe in joining forces with our ecosystem partners to accelerate innovation and the adoption of new technology.

Walid Negm, CTO, Aricent
Edge computing will provide value as it will deliver engaging and worthwhile subscriber experiences and operators need the capabilities to bring that to fruition. Our innovative solution enables forward looking operators to leverage their network and collaborate with application developers to leapfrog the competition and gain a competitive edge - at the edge.
