COMPUTING CLOSER TO THE USER
Although 5G networks and the Edge have emerged and grown independently, they share a core objective: enabling advanced, low-latency applications by bringing computing closer to the end user. Today, telecom providers are deploying their own edge resources and exploring relationships with existing edge computing providers to support their growing 5G networks.
As edge computing has become increasingly essential to critical business operations, the sites have become more robust and sophisticated, with enterprise-level availability requirements and remote monitoring and management capabilities. At Vertiv, we enable this functionality through smart AC UPS and power distribution systems, efficient thermal management solutions, simple-to-use monitoring platforms, advanced console servers and KVMs, and integrated, modular systems that efficiently bring it all together.
Which ecosystem wil be most important in the creation of new revenue services from the edge?
As one of the largest wireless service providers in the United States prepared to bring cloud data closer to the edge of its 5G network, it asked Vertiv to boost capacity through an overhaul of its mobile telephone switch office (MTSO) sites. Vertiv provided Liebert® EXL S1 uninterruptible power supply units, Liebert® DSE 400 free-cooling economization systems, and the IT expertise needed to execute this provider’s 5G strategy.
