MobiledgeX, which helps make edge computing widely accessible and easy to consume, announced it will work with TELUS, one of Canada’s largest telecommunications companies, to trial its edge network in Canada.
Third parties, such as mobile application developers, consumer device makers, and IoT hardware manufacturers will be enabled by end-to-end low latency and a global network of participating MobiledgeX operators to innovate with these new edge performance capabilities.
Next generation applications like industry 4.0, real-time multiplayer gaming and immersive Augmented Reality (AR) require higher bandwidth, lower latency and new backend services. Edge computing enables this to be delivered in 4G networks today and accelerates innovation and helps prepare for the distribution and scale that will be required when such experiences go mainstream in 5G.
TELUS will pilot MobiledgeX Edge-Cloud R1.0, which aggregates processors and GPUs in virtualized cloudlets in key locations near the edge of TELUS’ wireless and wired access networks. Developers, device manufacturers, and other technology partners with workloads that have demanding performance and data governance requirements can engage with MobiledgeX to begin planning for trial participation and their future use of the edge.
