MobiledgeX, WWT, Dell, and VMware Team Up on MEC
MobiledgeX and World Wide Technology (WWT) announced a partnership to make it easier for service providers to deploy MobiledgeX’s mobile edge computing (MEC) platform — and more quickly create new revenue streams. In addition to teaming up, the partners released their first MEC infrastructure blueprint, which uses Dell EMC hardware and VMware software. This blueprint includes Dell 14G servers with Intel Cascade Lake 2 processors and Optane persistent memory and VMware Integrated Openstack. “It’s the first of many blueprints to come,” said Eric Braun, chief commercial officer at MobiledgeX, adding that additional blueprints will be available as they’re validated in WWT’s Advanced Technology Center (ATC), multi-vendor testing and validation lab. “We’re very active with all the major OEMs, and we will have a variety of them represented in the ATC. [Dell and VMware] just happened to be the starting point.” German operator Deutsche Telekom founded MobiledgeX, which is based in San Francisco. The edge computing startup developed a global platform that connects developers to mobile operators by aggregating existing operator network resources.
