Joint MEC solution boosting augmented reality e-commerce visualization by CIMAGINE will be demonstrated at #MWC16
San Jose, CA, USA, Yokneam, Israel, February 2, 2016 – ADLINK Technology, Inc., a leading global provider of cloud-based services, intelligent gateways, and embedded building blocks for edge devices that enable the Internet of Things (IoT), and Saguna, the Mobile Edge Computing (MEC) pioneer making mobile broadband faster, simpler and more economical, announced today a joint Mobile Edge Computing (MEC) solution designed for deployments in harsh outdoor environments.
As MEC gains momentum, and new trials and live deployments are underway, the need for robust, no-fault equipment increases. Bringing the Internet closer to users and the things of the IoT requires MEC platforms to be deployed at the edge of the Radio Access Network (RAN), which is often in harsh outdoor environments.
Saguna and ADLINK integrated solution addresses this market need for rugged, outdoor deployments. The joint solution is comprised of Saguna Open-RAN, an advanced and fully virtualized MEC platform, operating on ADLINK’s rugged SETO-1000 extreme outdoor server platform designed for extreme conditions. The joint solution is compact, cost-effective and easy-to-install. By co-locating the MEC infrastructure with existing network real estate, mobile operators can reduce costs while delivering new services and improving network performance.
