SK Telecom is partnering with MobiledgeX, an edge computing company founded by Deutsche Telekom to enable a new generation of connected devices, content and experiences, creating new business models and revenue opportunities leading into 5G.
This follows a recent announcement of investment plan by SK Telecom in MobileedgeX.
The relationship between SK Telecom and MobiledgeX reflects an aligned vision for the future of mobile operators as key players in future mobile application development, performance, security, and reliability. This vision is shared by leading cloud providers and device makers working with MobiledgeX to seamlessly pair the power and distribution of mobile operator infrastructure with the convenience and depth of developer tooling of hyperscale public cloud and the scale, mobility and distribution of billions of end user devices.
MobiledgeX is focused on delivering developer-facing edge cloud services and bringing mobility to those services, dynamically placing application back-end as close to mobile devices as possible and removing them when not needed.
