Saguna delivers a solution that runs AWS Greengrass close to connected devices using Multi-access Edge Computing (MEC) infrastructure
Saguna, a leader and pioneer of Multi-access Edge Computing (MEC), announced today support for AWS Greengrass designed to bring services to mobile users from the network edge using a distributed MEC infrastructure.
Much of the data generated by IoT devices may never reach the cloud due to privacy requirements, latency constraints and costs. IoT applications need local cloud services operating close to the connected devices to improve the economics of telemetry data processing at the cloud with edge analytics; to minimize latency for time-critical applications; and ensure sensitive information is protected locally.
To address these IoT market segments needs for mobile users, Saguna has created a solution for deploying local MEC cloudlets running AWS Greengrass close to connected devices. The solution enables mobile operators to expand their IoT offering and customer base. Availability on AWS Greengrass extends AWS Cloud functionality using Saguna Open-RAN MEC platform.
AWS Greengrass is software that lets users run local compute, messaging and data caching for connected devices in a secure way. With AWS Greengrass, connected devices can run AWS Lambda functions, keep device data in sync, and communicate with other devices securely. AWS Greengrass seamlessly extends AWS to devices so they can act locally on the data they generate, while still using the cloud for management, analytics, and durable storage.
Saguna Open-RAN is a MEC platform that creates a standard-based cloud-computing ecosystem inside the radio access network; as close as possible to mobile users. Based on the ETSI MEC industry standard, the virtualized software platform provides a scalable distributed cloudlet infrastructure that adds value to 4G networks and HetNets that is essential for 5G.
“At Saguna, we are proud that AWS Greengrass is now available on the mobile network edge using our MEC platform. This seamless meeting of cloud computing and communication networks, creates new monetization opportunities for mobile operators and customers. Providing security and low latency benefits to IoT applications enables the creation of new compelling IoT services” said Lior Fite, Saguna’s CEO.
